KABUL: President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani on Thursday expressed serious concerns about the violence against protesters and civil activists in Pakistan.
Fresh protests by Pashtun Tahafuz Movement, which was founded a year ago to protest the death of Pashtun man killed by police, come following the death of PTM regional leader Arman Loni in Pakistan’s southwestern Baluchistan province which the group blamed on police. Pakistan authorities arrested 19 Pashtun activists this week.
“The Afghan government has serious concerns about the violence perpetrated against peaceful protesters and civil activists in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan,” President Ghani wrote on Twitter.
“We believe it is the moral responsibility of every government to support civil activities that take a stand against the terrorism and extremism that plagues and threatens our region and collective security. Otherwise there could be long-standing negative consequences,” the president wrote.
