Hanif Wazir Pashteen (Pashto: حنیف وزیر پښتین‎) is a human rights activist and one of the leaders of Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM).

Activism and detentions[edit]

On 3 September 2018, Hanif and other PTM activists, including Nadeem Askar, organized a two-day protest sit-in against Pakistan army's alleged human rights abuses in Spinwam, North Waziristan.[1]

On 22 September 2018, Hanif, Nadeem Askar, and other PTM activists attended a meeting in Janikhel, Bannu. At 8:15 pm, as they were leaving the village after the meeting, a group of militants suddenly opened fire on them but all the activists remained safe.[2]

On 6 November 2018, police raided Hanif's house to arrest him for his role in organizing a PTM public gathering in Bannu nine days earlier. Although Hanif was not home, the police detained two of his younger cousins on his behalf, Farid Ullah and Hikmat Ullah, one of whom was an 11th-grade student.[3][4]

2019 detention[edit]

On 4 July 2019, as Hanif Pashteen was staying at the house of Faheem Ullah in the Bannu Township area, security officials in plainclothes raided the house at 3 am in the night and arrested Hanif, Faheem Ullah, and Shaheen Ullah Dawar.[5][6] The arrests happened soon after Hanif had organized rallies in Bannu and Lakki Marwat to protest against the killings of PTM activists in the Kharqamar incident.

The police alleged that as the raiding party entered the house, Hanif opened fire on them, killing one person from the team and injuring two others. However, contradictory information was given on media as to who was allegedly killed. The Daily Times claimed that an intelligence agency official Havildar Shakir Azam was killed,[7] but ARY News and some other media, quoting Regional Police Officer (RPO) Abdullah Khan, claimed that a police inspector Zaheer was killed,[8] while 92 News claimed that an intelligence agency inspector Zaheer was killed.[9]

PTM, however, claimed that the charges by the intelligence agencies and police officials against Hanif were false and demanded the authorities to release him.[6][10] According to PTM leader Mohsin Dawar, "[Hanif] was attacked and then implicated in a false and fabricated case by intelligence agencies, because he kept resisting even during the worst crackdown after the Kharqamar massacre."[11]
