News from Victims - StateViolations

19/09/2016 The NCHRO  have issued a statement expressing serious concerns over the arrest and arbitrary detention of human rights activist , Khurram Parvez  as  Government continue to silence criticism of the state.

Khurram Parvez, 39, is a well-known activist, outspoken on a range of issues,  is the program coordinator for the Coalition of Civil Society Organisation. He was arrested from his home on 15-Sep-2016, Thursday, one day after he prevented from boarding a plane to the Geneva to attend the ongoing session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC).

The Indian Express reported that the authorities allowed Parvez's colleagues, Parvez Imroz and Kartik Murukutla, to travel to Geneva.  Sections 107 and 151 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allow the government to take a person into custody.

NCHRO condemns his arrest and calls for all charges against him to be dropped.  Freedom of opinion, expression, and assembly are basic rights protected by international treaties to which our country is party. The authorities to release the activist immediately, stop targeting government critics who seek to express dissenting views.

This arrest demonstrates a clear attempt to silence human rights advocacy and deter activists from exposing ongoing violations. NCHRO believes No peaceful activist should be facing prison particularly those who promote and protect human rights through peaceful and non-violent means.
