In the latest crackdown against Pashtuns, the police in Pakistan has arrested, abducted and disappeared 11 Pashtun activists from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The Chaman Police have detained Fida Mohammad Qabail, a member of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) South Pakhtunkhwa Central Committee. Shockingly, neither the victim nor his family has been informed of the reasons behind the arrest or the filing of an FIR.

Earlier on same day, Parachinar Police apprehended PTM Provincial coordinator Khabarul Amin Khan, along with Liaqat Yousafzai, Bilal Orakzai, and Mustafa Kamal from Parachinar city.

Six other Pashtun Activists abducted and disappeared

Furthermore, six other Pashtun Activists, associated with PTM, were abducted by the Khurram district police and have since disappeared without a trace, adding to the growing concerns over their whereabouts.

PTM, a Pashtun rights organization, is known for organizing peaceful protests to shed light on the persecution faced by the Pashtun community at the hands of the Pakistan Army. It has also exposed the collusion between the Army and the terrorists, who together destabilize the region for their own gains, leaving the local Pashtun population in distress.

These recent abductions, arrests, and enforced disappearances are part of Pakistan’s efforts to silence dissenting voices. With nearly a dozen individuals detained or abducted within two days without any legal basis, it underscores the vulnerable situation faced by Pashtuns in the country.
