PTM carried out protest for the release of PTM workers including Ali Wazir and Imaan Mazari in Quetta and Karachi.

On September 1, PTM workers hit the streets of Quetta and Karachi demanding the release of PTM workers, who were apprehended after the Islamabad rally on August 18. A couple of days ago, Manzoor Pashteen, the PTM chief posted on a social media platform that Pakistan Army is trying to kill Ali Wazir. This raised concern among the Pashtuns.

Consequently, PTM announced to organize a protest in Peshawar, Karachi and Quetta. Frightened by this, the Pakistan Army and Police tried to restrict the success to the protest sites. Inspite of the restrictions, thousands of PTM workers reached the protest site.

In Karachi, thousands of protestors gathered in front of Sadar Empress Market. Reportedly, about 40 workers were apprehended by the Police during the protest. Meanwhile, Sindh Provincial Leader of PTM, Noor Ullah Tareen called for the unified and firm support to the PTM leaders who have been arrested.  

Similarly, Quetta protest also witnessed a huge influx of PTM workers. Addressing the Quetta demonstration, PTM Central Committee Member Zubair Shah Agha said, “We tried to take our message to the Supreme Court, but permission was not granted. In Sindh and Punjab, notices are taken out when animals die, but when Pashtuns die every day, there is no response.”

The protest rally in Quetta and Karachi has once again sent tremors of unease within the Pakistan Army and so-called establishment. With the protest, PTM has also showed its resolute against the oppression by the Pakistan Army.
