Pashtuns protest outside Pakistan Embassy in Washington over Manzoor Pashteen's arrest

Pashtuns protested outside Pakistan Embassy in United States Washington on January 29. They were protesting over the arrest of founder of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) Manzoor Pashteen. He was arrested on January 27 in Peshawar along with other five members of the organisation. He was arrested with no charges by a group of individuals in plain clothes, and for many hours his whereabouts remained unknown. Only late in the morning, and after the PTM members, human rights activists and a good portion of the Pakistani civil society protested and raised the issue of his arrest - and of course, after the hashtag #ReleaseManzoorPashteen was trending in Pakistan - he has been produced in a court and sent to prison on fourteen days judicial custody with the phantomatic charge of being 'anti-national' and for making remarks against the Constitution of the country.
