Ahmad Farhad, a poet and journalist from Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (POJK) has been abducted by Pak Army from his house.

According to his wife, the abductors broke into their home, disconnected the CCTV, and forcibly dragged Ahmed Farhad outside.

The abduction of Ahmad Farhad by Pak Army has drawn significant attention from the journalistic and political activist communities.

Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Manzoor Pashteen called him as the chosen voice of Kashmir and demanded his immediate release.

Similarly, prominent Baloch missing persons activist and BYC leader, Dr. Mahrang Baloch condemned tha abduction and said that “Violence cannot suppress movements led by those most affected, and genuine voices daring to expose lies will continue to speak out against the state’s barbarism.”

Sources suggest that Farhad’s disappearance is linked to his recent reporting on the protests in POJK. His pursuit of justice for Kashmiris put him in harm’s way as Pakistan Army has a record of dehumanising them who stand for the rights and provide strength to the rights movements.
