ISLAMABAD: On the third day of the protest camp set up by the families of the missing persons in front of the Parliament House, Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) came to console them. “We [PML-N] will continue this jihad until they [missing persons] are recovered,” said party chief Nawaz Sharif.
Sharif said that his party will raise its voice against the issue. “This cannot be tolerated. All of this is happening under the nose of the democratic government.”
Sharif said, “We will move a resolution in the National Assembly to back the missing persons case.” He said that those who will oppose the resolution will be exposed in front of everyone.
“We cannot see this happening to the families of over 1,000 missing persons from across the country,” said Sharif. “Their family members have been picked up by unknown people, they don’t know of their whereabouts and their condition.”
He also extended his party’s support to the missing persons in Balochistan. “I want to assure my brothers in Balochistan that we will raise our voice for them as well. We do not discriminate between provinces,” said Sharif.
“Our heads are hanging in shame because of the society that we live in, who are these people going to go to?”questioned Sharif “I ask, why the government doesn’t inquire about this?”
