On Sunday 19 January, 2019, young activists and students heeded the Free Baba Jan Committee’s call to protest at the Lahore Press Club. They demanded the release of Comrade Baba Jan, Comrade Iftikhar Hussain and 12 other political prisoners who have been sentenced to life imprisonment. The verdict was given by an Anti-Terrorism Court back in 2016 but the prisoners have been behind bars since 2011. In the 9 years of incarceration they have been subjected to physical and psychological torture and have been denied their rights on several occasions.
