The Secretary General of LPP, Farooq Tariq, was released after four-day detention in Lahore. he was released after a campaign, including nation-wide protest demonstrations, for his release.

Here is his first reply on an email list run by LPP supporters.''I was released late last night. The police chief told me that he has three months detention ordre and he is sending me to
one of the most natorius jail, around 400 kilometer away from Lahore. He wanted me to stop agitation against military regime. I plainly refused and told him that Human Rights Commision of Pakistan haa taken my case already. I told him tha he should take of his
job as he has done an illegale act by takibg me in custody. We had a hot word exchange.

LPP had announced nationwide demos for today. Yours and others letter of protest and messages had started to arrive. The electronic media was broadcasting my arrest. An SMS campaign on the mobile phone meant a non stop messages of protest.

So he called me at 12 night he called me again to tell that he is suspending my detention order and I can go home''.

The LPP thanks all its supporters for lending support in this campaign.

We also salute Comrade Fraooq Tariq's brave struggle. he has been arrested for almost half a dozen times since imposition of present military rule.
