Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman’s continued detention slammed by Human Rights Society of Pakistan


Chairman Human Rights Society of Pakistan Dr S M Zafar on Thursday slammed the continued detention of Jang Geo Group Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman over trumped up charges in a property case. Dr Zafar said that MSR’s prolonged detention seems baseless in the matter being probed by the National Accountability Bureau. He called the arrest a violation of human dignity, adding that the group?s owner, Mir Khalil-ur-Rahman, and his son, MSR, have upheld the law and made an indelible mark on journalism.
