PTM Representative Mohsin Dawar “not allowed” at PDM

PTM Representative Mohsin Dawar “not allowed” at PDM


What has happened: Mohsin Dawar, Pashtun Tehreek Movement MNA has been disinvited from PDM demonstration happening in Gujranwala. According to reports many political parties including PML-N and JUI-F have shared their reservation about PTM representatives speaking at the procession.

Why is Mohsin Dawar being disinvited: PTM has a long history of calling out state aggressive policies against the Pashtun community which has always put them strictly under administration radar. 

Kharqamar check post incident: Back in May, two PTM representatives; Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir were accused of inciting violence at Kharqamar Check post where 15 people died and 35 were injured.

But these charges were dropped on October 15, 2020 when the KPK government repealed the FIR because of lack of evidence. 

What are people saying: Journalists are labelling it as an attack on freedom of speech and a missed opportunity to unified opposition.
