KABUL: Pashtun Tahfuz Movement (PTM) leader, Manzor Ahmad Pahsteen’s convoy became under attack on Wednesday in Zhob city of Baluchistan.
The PTM accuses the Pakistan military of conducting the attack. The attack left one person wounded.
The Pakistan military has targeted several members of the PTM. PTM is said to be a peaceful movement that seek justice for the arbitrary killings of people by the Pakistani military.
The videos circulating on social media shows that the Pakistan military try to separate Pashteen from his followers, but the members of the PTM resists.
Another video shows that Pastheen is among his followers and says that two of his friends have been detained by the Pakistani militias.
Pashteen names his friends as Bilal and Idris. Pashteen and his accompanying have gone to Kala Saif to celebrate the third death anniversary of Arman Loni who was brutally killed by the Pakistani forces.
The attack sparked a strong reaction among the PTM followers who have been blaming the Pakistani army of brutally murdering civilians.
“Attack on peaceful youth outside Killa Saifullah near Zhob is inhumane and shows how we’re treated by state though PTM was out to ask justice for our key founder Professor Arman Loni,” said Sanna Ejaz, a follower of PTM. “Prayers for the recovery of the injured comrade Noor Bacha and call upon the local, regional and international human rights organizations to condemn and take action against the brutalities on imposed terrorism victims by the Pakistan security Institutions.”
