On the sixth death anniversary of deceased human rights workers of Idara-e-Aman-o-Insaf, the Joint Action Committee (JAC) paid tribute to the departed souls and urged the government to seriously investigate the tragic incident that occurred on September 25, 2002.

Aslam Martin, John Menis, Benjamin Talib, Mushtaq Roshan, Kamran Anjum and Allah Rakha, working for Idara-e-Aman-o-Insaf were brutally murdered in the premises of their office. “All the slain comrades were devoted and selfless, contributed a lot to Idara-e-Aman-o-Insaf and downtrodden and oppressed people of Pakistan. Their only crime was that they were human rights and social workers,” stated members of the JAC in a press statement on Wednesday.

Idara-e-Aman-o-Insaf was a prominent civil society organisation working for religious harmony, labour rights, social and economic justice. Idara also campaigned for the rights of sanitary workers, prisoners and Katchi Abadis, Discriminatory Laws, Child Labour. “Its closure after the demise of its dedicated workers is a great loss to the civil society and struggle for a peaceful and just society,” said Asad Butt, Convener JAC, urging the government to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
