Activist-professor Dr Riaz is ‘free and back home’

Karachi University’s professor and a political activist, Dr Riaz Ahmed, who had gone missing from Karachi on Friday night has returned home.

In a post shared on Facebook in the wee hours of Sunday, Dr Riaz wrote, “I am free and back home…struggle continues in these difficult and oppressive times only through your support and untiring quest for the rights of all oppressed…”

Dr Riaz’s disappearance had drawn the ire of Pakistani civil society which denounced the detention of the activist-professor. Famed novelist Muhammad Hanif took to Twitter and wrote: “I can’t believe they have picked up Dr. Riaz Ahmed again. He is Karachi’s agitator-in-chief. That’s his work, that’s what he does. Please let him go…”
