Bilawal Bhutto condemns PTM leader’s arrest

Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has condemned the arrest of Pakhtun Tehfiz Movement’s Mohammad Ali Wazir.

In a statement, the PPP Chairman said that arrest of the elected member of the Assembly in this way was against the democratic traditions. He said that holding public meetings were no crime to arrest an elected representative.

Bilawal said that cases registered against elected representatives and political leaders were baseless warning that such acts will not bring good results if the regime continued to muzzle the freedom of expression.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that it has been the modus operandi of the fascist governments to implicate the elected representatives in false cases to crush the public voice. The selected government is also trying to eliminate the democratic voices through adopting fascist tools, he added.
