Bilawal slams govt for ignoring HRW on national issues

KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Friday reprimanded the federal government and claimed that it “loves” quoting the Human Rights Watch (HRW) on the Kashmir issue but not on the country’s internal human rights abuses.

The PPP leader’s statement came in light of the recent report of the HRW on human rights abuses allegedly being carried out by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

“Human rights watch calls out NAB political victimisation of political parties & media. Mentions Saad Rafique, Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman, myself & my father. We love to quote @hrw on Kashmir but ignore them on Pakistan,” he wrote on Twitter.
