Karachi (News): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Secretary General Dr Arif Alvi has pledged support for the demand for the release of Baba Jan Hunzai and his fellow activists of the Labor Party Pakistan who had been languishing in jail for months.
During a meeting with the Labour Party leader Farooq Tariq, Dr Alvi condemned the alleged torture of the arrested, saying that the treatment meted out to the political activists was a clear violation of fundamental human rights.
He said the alleged torture of Baba Jan Hunzai was in complete contradiction with the PPP government’s claim that there were no political prisoners in the country. The PPP had continually mistreated political activists including the people of Gilgit-Baltistan who had been struggling for their political and economic rights, he added. Dr Alvi expressed support for the petition demanding the immediate release of the political activists.
