Pakistan Army continues its Patronage to Religious Terrorists : US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher

Rohrabacher, the American Congressman from California had earlier been a strong advocate for Pakistan, has now turned into one of the bitterest critics of Islamabad. This is because of the fact that Pakistan is still providing safe heaven to terrorists.

Recently, Rohrabacher spoke at a conference attended by workers and office bearers of MQM from 12 chapters of the US, Canada and the UK, along with representatives of think-tanks, senior journalists, bloggers and people from different walks of life.

The member of the House Foreign Affairs, Rohrabacher said that Mohajirs in general and workers of MQM are suffering in Pakistan.

Addressing the participants of the conference ‘Mohajir Day on the Capitol Hill’, organised by the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), Congressman Dana Rohrabacher alleged that the corrupt Pakistani Army officers were involved in the extrajudicial killing of Mohajirs in Karachi.

“They are openly supporting religious extremists. This is not acceptable at any cost,” said Congressman Rohrabacher. He was a close aide to former US president Ronald Regan.

“ I extend my full support to them. We cannot allow these corrupt officers from Islamabad to continue the atrocities. It is totally unacceptable. “ he said.

He also added that every citizen has every right to defend his freedom and basic rights and the United States is fully aware of the crimes of the corrupt officers from Islamabad. “

“We want to make Karachi a peaceful and prosperous city like Singapore and we will support MQM to get rid of these atrocities”, said Nadeem Ehsan, convener of MQM.

He further added that the basic human rights of Mohajirs were violated and they were not even allowed to vote to whom they wanted, and therefore, the founder and leader of MQM, Altaf Hussain had announced to boycott the upcoming elections on July 25.

Pakistan’s powerful army is supporting religious extremism in the country, and trampling the rights of the Mohajir community.

The term Mohajir is used to describe the Urdu-speaking immigrants who left India in 1947 and came to Pakistan. A large chunk of them settled in the Sindh province.
