  • Arsalan Taj mainly focused on the prisoners with severe medical conditions in the jails all over Pakistan.
  • ”If convicted Nawaz Sharif can go abroad then every sick prisoner should be given the same exceptions.”

PTI MPA Arsalan Taj, a member of Sindh Assembly, wrote an open letter to the President of Pakistan Arif Alvi seeking equal treatment for the sick prisoners in Pakistani jails.

Severe Medical Conditions

Arsalan Taj mainly focused on the prisoners with severe medical conditions in the jails all over Pakistan.

”If the government can allow Nawaz Sharif, a convicted person to go abroad for his treatment, then all the patients, especially with the serious conditions, should be treated the same way”

– Taj.

The letter reads, “

After a recent precedent has been set by the Government of Pakistan to allow a convicted person, Mr. Nawaz Sharif, to travel abroad for his medical treatment, I seek your office to allow all the inmates with severe medical conditions, especially terminally ill patients in Pakistani jails, to be given the same facilities.”

Arsalan Taj mentioned the records from 2014-2016 in his letter, which he presented in the provincial assembly. He said due to lack of proper medical facilities, 90 prisoners died in Sindh Jail.

”No Problem with Nawaz Sharif”

He further added that he has no problem with Nawaz Sharif going abroad for treatment, and his best wishes are with him.

”I am just requesting equal rights for every prisoner in all jails of Pakistan. Everybody should be treated equally so I request President Arif Alvi to please consider my suggestions”, Arsalan Taj.
