Yes a notification was issued by @ShireenMazari1's ministry making one Iftikhar Ahmed Khan focal person on Human Rights for Sindh. Is this the same Iftikhar who only two months ago was accused of mercilessly torturing his servant. The HR Minister must justify this appointment pic.twitter.com/id0hvisnjW
