Political workers, students, intellectuals, writers and the oppressed minorities are facing forced abductions in Pakistan. We must raise our voices on this issue. In the past three days four Social Media Activists have been abducted from Central Punjab and Islamabad. This is a premeditated campaign by the State to subvert dissent on Social Media after the State has established complete control over mainstream media. Clearly the Nawaz Sharif Government in the Center and Provincial Government of Shahbaz Sharif are responsible. LUBP demands that all abducted bloggers should be recovered and reunited with their families immediately.
Professor Salman Haider of Fatima Jinnah University in Islamabad was a poet, playwright and social worker. He was abducted while returning from Bani Gala to Islamabad with a group of friends. A former intelligence officer, on condition of anonymity has disclosed to LUBP, that there are certain black sheep in the Nawaz Sharif Government who will not tolerate dissenting opinions. Salman, along with other bloggers was quite outspoken. These media monitoring goons were unhappy with Salman’s brother Zeeshan Haider who worked for an international media organization. The thugs of Nawaz Sharif and his Takfiri Deobandi allies of Sipah Sahaba, a banned pro ISIS organization that the Sharifs have made political alliances with consider it their religious duty to suppress any dissent to Caliph Nawaz Sharif.
Zeeshan Haider, who broke the news of his brother’s abduction to Geo and other mainstream media organizations, added that his brother suffered from severe allergies, and his life maybe in danger without proper medication. He added that a joint investigation was underway by the authorities and Salman maybe returning soon.
