RESPECTED JOURNALISTS! As you people know that my brother Zakir Majeed, the vice chairman of BSO(Azaad),was abducted on 8 June 2009 near Jungle cross Paringabad at Mastung. It was an absolutely illegal arrest and detention. There are many eye witnesses of his abduction therefore, our family has been protesting for about a year and 3 months.
