Sindh National Voice, an organization which organised the rally said in a statement, “When leadership of national movements were being assassinated, abducted, enforced, disappeared and brutally tortured to death and also thrown in wild or roads after being kept in detention centres for years, that is the worst condition and form of national slavery and subjugation.” “Political activists of Sindh were abducted, enforced disappeared by ISI and Pakistani Rangers since years,” the statement added. Sindh National Voice further stated that recently Nawab Mahar, Aqib Chandio and Shakeel Haider were abducted. It alleged that security agencies are spreading fear amongst common people of Sindh by sabotaging political activists.
