Human rights activist and esteemed poet Gilaman Pashteen urgently needs evacuation to Germany after a severe attack in Islamabad.

Prominent PTM member Gilaman Wazir is in critical condition after being shot and stabbed multiple times. Wazir, a key figure in the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) and a member of its Central Committee, was attacked while traveling to Islamabad.

He sustained 13 stab wounds and is currently in critical condition at a local hospital. This attack follows a history of abductions and illegal detentions of Gilaman by intelligence and military agencies by Punjabi Pak Army.

The PTM has denounced the attack as a Army-sponsored attempt on his life. Given the severity of his injuries, PTM is urgently calling for his immediate airlifting to Germany for specialized medical treatment that is unavailable locally.

They have appealed to the German Embassy in Islamabad to expedite the visa process for Wazir.

PTM’s social media team has launched a campaign under the hashtag #EvacuateGilamanWazir2Germany, demanding the swift issuance of a medical visa and the immediate airlift of Wazir to Germany.

“We implore the German Embassy to expedite his visa process immediately. His life hangs in the balance, and timely intervention is crucial to his survival and recovery,” the PTM said.

Since 1947, the Punjabi Pakistan Army has been exploiting Pashtun lands and people for their vested interests. The movement highlights issues such as enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings, and collective punishment inflicted upon Pashtuns in the name of counter-terrorism operations.

Wazir’s case is not an isolated one. He has previously been detained by Pak intelligence and military agencies, highlighting the vulnerability of Pashtun activists. The Punjabi Pakistan Army resorts to violence against members of PTM, despite the organization being predominantly peaceful.
