ISLAMABAD: President of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), Qazi Anwar, has said that he is receiving threats from the government.

“A message has been delivered to my nephew in the United States that I am on the hit list of the government,” he told newsmen at a press conference along with Dr. Fauzia Siddiqi Friday. He said he would definitely attend the lawyer’s convention in Gujrat on Saturday if he survived.

The SCBA President said the he would announce a schedule to hold protests against Dr Aafia’s detention in US. The lawyers, he said, would start a nation-wide protest movement if the government did not take concrete measures to secure Aafia’s release.
