PESHAWAR: Members of the Hizb-ut Tahrir (HT) staged protest here Saturday to condemn the arrest of their spokesman Naveed Butt and demand his release.
The small number of activists staged protest outside the Peshawar Press Club and lamented that Naveed Butt was kidnapped when he was bringing home his small children from school. They blamed General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani for the action against Hizb-ut Tahrir and arrest of a number of its activists.
A press release said Hizb-ut Tahrir was banned and its members were being punished for criticizing General Kayani for doing America’s bidding. It reiterated Hizb-ut Tahrir’s resolve to continue struggling for Khilafat .
