KARACHI: TV and film actress Humaima Malick Wednesday joined calls for the recovery of missing rights activists and bloggers, becoming the first artist to speak up on the issue.

At least four activists known for their leftist views have gone missing from Punjab and Islamabad, causing an outrage on social media with the calls for their safe release.

Those missing include poet and academic Salman Haider, Waqas Goraya, Asim Saeed and Ahmed Raza Naseer. A fifth activist, Samar Abbas, is also reported to be missing since Saturday, but there is no official confirmation about his disappearance.

A social media campaign titled #RecoverAllActivists has been launched to demand the safe return of the bloggers and activists.

Joining the campaign on Twitter, Humaima, who is known for her activism on social media, questioned the state’s failure to protect its own people.

“Why can’t we protect our people?” the actress wrote.

In a second tweet, she said it was truly saddening to see all these beautiful people disappearing.

Following are some of the tweets posted on the issue:
