The Youths of Parachinar staged a protest rally on Monday against besieging of Parachinar by what they termed Talibans since last four years.

The rally started from Purani Numaish and ended at the Karachi Press Club where a large number of law enforcers cordoned off the entire area and blocked the road leading to the Governor’s House. The water cannon carriage was also posted to disperse the protesters.

However, the youths peacefully scattered after their demonstration. The road leading to the KPC apparently was also under siege, as neither vehicles nor the pedestrians were allowed to move in by the LEA deployed on the arterial avenue.

The youth demanded of the Government and the Pakistan Army to immediately establish the writ of the government and take immediate action against the American-Taliban to end the four year-long besiege of Parachanar-Kurram Agency.

The Youth of Parachanar (YoP), an organisation of the Kurram Agency-Parachanar Youths living in Karachi staged protest demonstration in front of Karachi Press Club (KPC)against the years-long siege by the Taliban. The large number of students of various universities and colleges of Karachi hailing from Kurram Agency gathered outside KPC, the participants carried placards inscribed with slogans and chanted against Taliban, and the ruling PPP government over their discriminated behavior with the people of Parachanar.
