HRCP Discusses Pakistan’s Contribution
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan recently organised a media briefing to discuss Pakistan’s contribution, voluntary pledges, commitments, shortcomings and gaps in fulfilling their duties.
Human Rights Commission of Pakistan member Mr. Najamuddin mediated the briefing.
Speaking on the occasion, Human rights activist IA Rehman said that human rights are being violated in Pakistan despite commitments to international human rights bodies. Violations of human rights like enforced disappearances, torture, violence and religious discrimination continue. The commissions or bodies like the commission for inquiry on enforced disappearances or legislation was done to evade criticism.
Reema Omer of International Commission of Jurists said that as far as violations of human rights, for example torture, enforced disappearances were concerned, a culture of impunity prevailed. No responsibility was fixed in such cases and nobody ever was punished.
