Mohsin Dawar, member National Assembly from Waziristan was stopped at Islamabad airport from traveling abroad.
In a tweet, Dawar wrote: “I was stopped at Islamabad airport by FIA & prevented from travelling to Tajikistan to attend Herat Security Dialogue.This is outrageous as cabinet had removed my name from ECL for 2 months.Once again Neutral Havaldar demonstrates that he has more authority than the federal govt.”
Dawar added, “Only a few days ago, Pak civil society was celebrating Bajwa’s speech in which he accepted the military’s interference in politics and announced a non-interference policy in this politics. Is this “neutrality” and “non-interference” a privilege limited to Punjab only?”
In his statements on Twitter, Dawar did not mince his words: “Stopping an elected representative of thousands of Pashtuns, from traveling to become part of a regional dialogue is a testimony to the fact that in the coming years Pashtuns will continue to become victims of military establishment policies protecting their corporate interests.”
