The issue of missing persons across the country, including Sindh, is a serious matter and the state should act like a mother and play its role in the recovery of these individuals, said Sindh Jamaat-e-Islami naib emir Mumtaz Hussain Sehto while speaking to a party gathering on Wednesday.

He said relatives of the missing persons were being turned away as they went from door to door in search of their loved ones, similar to those seeking justice through Form 45, but no one was there to address their grievances.

“Even the institutions responsible for delivering justice have disappointed them, leaving them without hope,” the JI leader said, adding that if an individual was involved in any illegal activity or a crime against the country, the government should hold them accountable within the legal and constitutional framework.

He mentioned that the issue of missing persons is becoming more severe day by day, with relatives of missing persons wandering for years in search of their loved ones, yet no one is concerned about their plight.

“Since the self-made incident of 9/11, thousands of people have gone missing. This is not an issue of just one area or province but a national issue. The issue of missing persons is not a fiction but a reality and should be viewed and resolved with human compassion,” he commented.
