Govt Places Manzoor Pashteen On ECL
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has placed Pashtun Tahafuz Movement's (PTM) chief Manzoor Pashteen on Exit Control List (ECL).

Pashteen's name was placed on the no-fly list in December 2018 as per the notification making rounds on the social media.

Social media users have condemned the move, urging the government to remove Pashteen's name from ECL.

One social media user condemned the move and said that “all banned outfits are free to move” but Pashteen is on the ECL.

Another wrote that a human rights activist shouldn't be placed on ECL.

Along with the #RemovePashteenFromECL trend on Twitter, a petition is also making rounds wherein Pashteen has been "nominated" for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Another asked: “Was he [Pashteen] involved in terrorist activities, was he spying for enemies while serving in armed forces or was involved in any corruption? #RemovePashteenFromECL”
