KARACHI - Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi chief Hussain Mehanti has demanded the Supreme Court of Pakistan and the government to take immediate notice of the kidnapping of JI worker Ammar Faizan and ensure his early recovery.
He made this demand while addressing a press conference at Idara-e-Noor Haq here on Monday. The family members, including the mother of Ammar Faizan, his elder brother Aazib Faizan and his uncle were also present on the occasion.
Addressing a press conference, Mehanti said the act of kidnapping a 28-year-old cancer patient Ammar Faizan puts a question mark on the performance of the government and security agencies.
“On one hand, the apex court had issued directives in order to recover the missing persons while on the other hand the kidnapping cases are continuously increasing with each passing day which tantamount to violate the orders of Supreme Court,” he added.
Apprising the details of kidnapping, Mehanti said some unidentified persons in civvies entered the residence of Ammar Faizan on August 22, located in Gulshan-e-Amin, Federal B Area, Block No 21 at 11.00am and took him along with them. He informed the media that after passing 11 days, Ammar was still missing despite the fact that an FIR has already been launched. He was suffering from deadly disease cancer for the last 4 years and also under treatment. Condemning the incident, he said it was a serious crime and violation of the Constitution to kidnap anyone without any reason. He said the target killers and extortionists were roaming freely while the innocent people are being kidnapped without any reason. The LEAs instead of arresting the criminals are just using their power on the innocent people of the city.
He warned the officials concerned that the JI has reserves the right to stage protest demonstrations against the non-recovery of Ammar Faizan.
Speaking at the occasion, the mother of Ammar Faizan said his son was a cancer patient and needs special care due to his ailment.
She lamented the government and its security agencies to recover his son on humanitarian grounds. JI central ameer Farooq Naimatullah also spoke on the occasion.
