Khyber Pakhtunkhwa member of provincial assembly (MPA) Mir Kalam Wazir has said that being an elected member of the parliament, he was not free to move in his own country.
On Wednesday, MPA Mir Kalam Wazir, along with some Pashtun activists, was on his way to condole with the family of one Khatir Khan Shinwari in Landi Kotal, Khyber.
According to a report in Dawn, local residents had claimed that Shinwari had allegedly died in the custody of security forces. They also demanded a judicial inquiry into the incident.
MPA Mir Kalam Wazir, in a Twitter post, said that while the rest of Pakistan was celebrating Jinnah Day, he was stopped from freely moving.
