Caravan For Afia’s Release
A CARAVAN, consisting of lawyers and representatives of civil society, left for Islamabad on foot on Saturday to press their demand for the release of Dr Afia Siddiqui and all missing persons.
Representatives of the Supreme Court Bar Association, Lahore High Court Bar Association and Lahore Tax Bar Association besides members of civil society led the caravan from GPO Chowk.
Female lawyers also participate in the caravan which would reach Islamabad on August 14 to present a memorandum to the government officials in front of the parliament building.
SCBA’s Secretary Raja Zulqarnain, speaking on the occasion, said more lawyers and people would join the caravan on its way to Islamabad and a big gathering would be showed.
He was of the view that political parties were not playing their due role on the issue of missing persons because they had pledged country’s sovereignty to America.
