Islamabad: Pakistani nuclear scientist, Pervez Hoodbhoy, lamented about the disharmony among Muslims in Pakistan and blamed it for the arrest of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader Manzoor Pashteen and for freedom movement in Balochistan.
Pervez Hoodbhoy said, “If Muslims could have lived in peace together, we would not have separatist movement in Balochistan. You would not have Manzoor Pashteen arrested and all the PTM leadership arrested today.”
The top nuclear scientist Pakistan had said in 2017 that his country has become a fascist religious state.
His statement is significant as PTM supporters have been demanding Pashteen’s release and has held massive rallies in Balochistan, Karachi, and in many other cities across Pakistan. Pashteen was arrested for sedition last month along with nine members of the PTM and sent to 14 day judicial custody.
