Mohsin Dawar, Ali Wazir attend National Assembly session after four months
ISLAMABAD: Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir returned to the National Assembly on Tuesday, four months after they were arrested.
Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar were arrested by security forces in June after the Kharqamar checkpost attack. The clash between the PTM protesters and Pakistan Army soldiers left 11 people dead and several injured.
Security forces claimed Dawar and Wazir instigated the PTM followers to attack the army checkpost. Dawar and Wazir denied the allegations and claimed that they were being framed.
Dawar spoke during the session and slammed Prime Minister Imran Khan for his UNGA speech. Dawar said that the prime minister had admitted before the world that Pakistan had created thousands of militants and terrorists.
“If I say something then I would be labelled a terrorist,” he said. “Our very own prime minister said that Pakistan had created Al-Qaeda.”
Dawar said that for four months, production orders for him and Wazir were not issued.
“The defence minister and the interior minister kept delaying the issue,” he said. “We waited for four months to make this speech, Mr Speaker. Kindly let us,” he added when Asad Qaiser told him to wrap it up.
