PTM Jalsa Islamabad to continue after changing venue


PTM Jalsa Islamabad: After being forced to move the location of their demonstration due to the arrest of hundreds of activists on Friday, the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement will continue its rally in Islamabad.

According to the media reports, The PTM had previously stated that it would stage a sit-in outside the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s premises unless the court produced the missing people.

Several members of the organization, according to PTM Chief Manzoor Pashteen, have been detained as they sought to make their way to the Supreme Court building for the PTM Jalsa Islamabad and to demand that the state defend their rights and provide protection. The PTM activists will continue their journey despite obstacles put forth by the authorities, according to Pashteen, and they still intend to demonstrate in front of the Supreme Court in Islamabad.

Manzoor Pashteen further stated that besides police violence, roadblocks, traffic closures, and attempted arrests, PTM teenagers are retaliating and making progress in the middle of all of this.

Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti, the interim interior minister, then claimed that PTM had consented to have a public event at Tarnol rather than in front of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. According to him, the PTM has agreed to move its public meeting from in front of the Supreme Court to Tarnol after successful negotiations with the administration.

Caretaker Interior Minister Sarfraz Bugti ordered the immediate release of the PTM activists detained in Lahore, Peshawar, and other cities.  He also thanked the leadership of the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement for cooperating with the caretaker government.

More than 50 PTM activists who were on their way to take part in the event have reportedly been detained, according to the district police. Top officials were detained by law enforcement, including Hassan Nasir of the National Democratic Movement (NDM) and PDM’s Naimatullah Wazir. The Section 144 ban on protests in the federal capital jurisdiction was implemented by the Islamabad administration on Thursday for an extended term.
