Washignton: Human rights activist Gulalai Ismail has said the Pakistani authorities are  using regressive anti-terrorism, cybercrime, and sedition laws to curb voices of dissent instead of taking actions to end terrorism.

"Gulalai Ismail said that the state authorities instead of curbing terrorism are using regressive anti-terrorism, cybercrime and sedition laws to curb voices of dissent in Pakistan," a statement by Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) quoted Ismail as saying as reported by ANI.

The PTM organized an official launch event in the National Press Club here recently, reports ANI.

More than 50 participants joined the event.

The participants included Pashtun, Baloch, and Sindhi diaspora.
