Petition : Please Free the “Dr Hassan Zafar Arif” his Life is in Danger
We, are submitting this petition regarding the arrests of 70-year-old retired professor Dr Hassan Zafar Arif and others.
Dr. Zafar introduces "Democracy-to-Political parties and improving of Political methods to avoid "Monarchies" and fascism.
The world receive the benefits of his teaching; he is not militant, and throughout his life he taught "True Democracy" in Pakistan. Political loyalties are currently at high risk of fascism.
On 20th December, the Home Ministry ordered Dr. Zafar Arif’s release but he was rearrested minutes after their release by the Azizabad police.
Dr. Zafar Arif has been denied access to a lawyer and medical attention. He is a heart patient who has undergone two heart bypasses. His doctor in the US has written a letter on 25 October to the Sindh Government, Federal Government and the Armed Forces of Pakistan, highlighting the importance of providing him with regular medication. However, this continues to be denied by the prison authorities.
We hope you will stop ordering crack downs on citizens. It’s a serious matter and a violation of International law.
By sigining below, we request General Qamar Javed Bajwa and your authorities to overturn the convictions and to order fair trials and the immediate release of all prisoners of conscience.
*To overturn the mass unfair trials of all arrests
*To carry out prompt, independent, and impartial investigations
*To mount an international effort to end impunity for crimes committed by Police, the Rangers in urban cities of Sindh
*To acknowledge the footage showing atrocities committed by Police and Rangers
*To stop the beatings in detention and unfair punishments simply for exercising right to free speech, association and assembly
It is a cruel, inhumane, and degrading punishment, and it is a poorly veiled attempt to wipe out political opposition.
Thank you for taking action now and joining the fight to stop torture.
