Pakistan: Mixed marathon brutally dispersed by police
Police barred a gathering of women and men organised by HRCP and the Joint Action Committee for Peoples Rights on the Main Boulevard in Gulberg and swept 40 of the activists to the police station. The “mixed-marathon” was organized to promote liberalism and “enlightened-moderation”. It was scheduled on May 14 at 5:00 pm from Qaddafi Stadium to Kalama Chowk. Following the directions of the Lahore District Government, police beat up and detained dozens of citizens and human rights activists including HRCP Chairperson Asma Jehangir, HRCP Secretary General Syed Iqbal Haider, JAC convenor Shah Taj Qizalbash, Hina Jillani and several others when they tried to hold the mixed run. Around 40 activists were brutally dragged into police vans as soon as the run started and held for a couple of hours at local police stations. Journalists were abused and shoved aside. The city government had ‘disallowed’ the mixed run on the pretext of a “negative report” by the police and fear of mullas attacking the runners. The police claimed that it had received information of an impending assault on the mixed rally by activists of the Shabab-e-Milli, the youth wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami.
