Islamabad:  The Pakhtun Students Federation (PSF), an allied student wing of Pakistan’s Awami National Party (ANP), has condemned the police baton charge over a peaceful protest in Peshawar University campus last week.

According to the students' body, hundreds of PSF workers were severely injured in baton charge, and hundreds arrested after students demanded basic rights at the university campus, reports ANI.

Samar Haroon Bilour of the Awami National Party tweeted: "The arrest of innocent @PukhtoonSF  operatives by the police while providing legal cover to ISF thugs is a very dictatorial move, making it clear that the provincial government is using the police to fulfill its political ambition. "

She said: "The police administration should immediately release the
@PukhtoonSF
workers and take action against the real culprits who have polluted the environment of educational institutions and have now resorted to open terrorism."

People from the Pashtun community are reportedly facing  genocide in the hands of the Pakistan army.
