Tosa Maidan Bachav Front (TBF) has expressed shock and concern over the unfortunate blast at Tosa Maidan in which Wajid Ahmed, of Zugo, Kharien was killed.
The spokesman of TBF in a statement expressed solidarity with the bereaved family and prayed for the departed soul.
The spokesman said that the incident took place while the 4th annual Jashn-e-Tosa-Maidan-2018 of 5 days between 9-13 August, was ongoing.
In this hour of grief, TBF has called-off the Jashn today on its fourth day. Announcements in the area and the meadow for locales as well as tourists have been made to not fiddle with the unidentified shells or suspicious objects, and to report the same to TBF members or authorities.
He said the TBF strongly demands a thorough investigation of the incident, keeping in view the presence of firing range practices being carried out in the meadow in past and also, vested interest of many groups and individuals in hindering the process of community-driven adventure and rural tourism in TosaMaidan.
The spokesman said that furthermore, TBF was initiated with the core purpose to protect lives of people in this belt from firing range practices and we stand adamantly to protect the life of every individual in the area and for the safety and security of the community and to uphold its rights. Unless that is not achieved, we will continue to fight.”
