A Pakistani activist associated with a friendship initiative between the youth of India and Pakistan has gone missing from his residence here hours after taking part in an open discussion on extremism, his colleagues said today. Raza Mahmood Khan, convener of Aghaz-i-Dosti, went missing on Saturday, his colleague Raheemul Haq said. "We last met Raza on Saturday evening for an open discussion on extremism specifically focusing on the recent Islamabad sit-in of Islamists," he said. Raza is also associated with another community initiative that brings people together for dialogues and debates on issues critical to building a peaceful society. Raza's brother Hamid Nasir has submitted an application to Naseerabad police for an FIR but the case has not been registered yet. Another colleague of Raza said he was quite critical of the role of the military establishment in the sit-in staged by religious groups. The sit-in ended on November 27 after military brokered a deal between the protesters and the PML-N government.
