Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Monday said that he never imagine that “human rights violations like Kashmir” will happen in Pakistan as he accused the country’s armed forces of physical assault, abuse, house raid, robbing and vandalisation.
He took to Twitter to slam Pakistan’s security forces and said, “Whenever our Holy Prophet (PBUH) would go for battle, there were strict instructions that women, children and elders were not to be harmed. Today, our own security forces are raiding our houses in the middle of the night, breaking doors, vandalising the house and robbing it. Women are abused, harassed and threatened and if the person is not there then their boys, fathers and even servants are picked up and jailed.”
Khan further alleged that his sisters, driver and cook were picked up by the police. “My sisters, driver and cook Rahim were picked up when the police couldn’t find her son. Both were jailed where they were packed like sardines. Rahim suffered breathing problems and since his release he has been on the ventilator fighting for his life. Clearly those who are responsible for this reign of terror feel they are above law.”
“We used to hear about such grave violations of human rights in Indian occupied Kashmir but never imagined this would be happening here. While this policy might have temporarily spread fear amongst the people, it’s only a matter of time before this seething hatred comes out in the open,” he added in the tweet.
