Karachi -  Jamaate--Islami Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman has expressed his concern over the alleged enforced disappearance of its activist Musab Abdul Qadir from Nazimabad and demanded that he be released immediately.

According to a statement issued from JI Karachi office on Saturday, the JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman visited the residence of the missing JI activist and met with the family.

Naeem said that enforced disappearances were against the basic human rights, constitution and law of the land.

“The concerned authorities should immediately release the JI activist and several others and stop this injustice against the citizens of the country,” the JI chief said. 

He said that Musab was arrested in an overnight raid on his residence in Nazimabad and they had approached Rangers and police, but no one had disclosed his whereabouts as yet.

The mother of Musab told the JI leader that he was a responsible, loyal and educated citizen of the country and was never involved in any sort of criminal activity. Speaking on the occasion, Hafiz Naeem said that the arrest was inhuman and an illegal act and violated basic human rights in the country where supremacy of the constitution was stressed.

“Such acts fan feelings of violence in people which is required to be halted for the betterment of the country,” he said.
