TORONTO: PAshtoo Tahafuz Movement(PTM) in the Canada and Pakistani National Movement jointly organized a protest demonstration in Toronto against the forced missing of Pashtuns and Baloch citizens.

Speaking on the occasion, PTM leaders including Bukhari, prof Siraj, Mubeen malik, Karan, Intikhab Alam, Falak Naz, Sabar Sabiri, Baloch leader Salahuddin Baloch and others said that their near and dear ones were picked up and still missing. They said Pakistan should release Pshtoons and Baloch languishing in jails. They demanded of the Pakistani authorities to provide foolproof security to PTM leaders.
