The Veterans of Pakistan (VOP) have said that the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) is an anti-state group since it is supported by elements that want to see Pakistan as a failed state.
The veterans said Pakistan Army and integrity of Pakistan were the main targets of PTM, according to a statement issued by the organisation on Saturday.
The organisation demanded a logical end to the trial against former SSP Rao Anwar, as “it is becoming a rallying point for anti-state elements like PTM.”
About the recent Sahiwal encounter in which four people were killed by Punjab’s counter-terrorism police, VOP said the killings had resulted in nationwide concern among the masses.
“The excuses by CTD and others are not supported by available evidence,” the statement added.
