PTM MNA Ali Wazir Arrested Following Participation In Event Marking APS Attack Anniversary

Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM)-linked MNA Ali Wazir was arrested by the Peshawar police on Wednesday following his participation in an event held to mark the anniversary of APS attack. It has been reported that he was detained on charges of issuing “anti-state” remarks.

MNA Mohsin Dawar however alleges that he has been arrested for commemorating the APS massacre. He says it’s unfair that on one hand Ali Wazir has been arrested and on another the Afghan Talibans are being given VIP protocol on the day of APS attacks anniversary.

Movement leader Manzoor Pashtun tweeted that Ali Wazir’s arrest in Peshawar was “a continuation of the government’s repressive policies.”

Moreover, the arrest of Ali Wazir from Peshawar is a continuation of the repressive policy of the state, our struggle for peace in our homeland will continue, the movement against this heinous act will announce its strategy.
