QUETTA: Former Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar on Saturday expressed concern over the ‘human rights violation’ in Pakistan and lambasted the ‘absence’ of rule of law.
Addressing a seminar in Quetta, the former Senator said that restricting people from holding peaceful protests is violation of basic human rights, regretting that there was no rule of law or democracy in Pakistan.
Mustafa Nawaz added that the relationship between the people and political parties has suffered in recent times.
Expressing distress on the political crisis, he said that the politicians should address people’s issues rather than being engaged in irrelevant political discourse such as Panama Papers and Toshakhana case.
The former senator further said that Pakistan was on the verge of economical and political crises, which is increasing the trust level between public and political parties. While quoting a survey he said that at least 70 percent of youth want to settle abroad.
It is pertinent to mention here that the senior politician Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar announced parting ways as senator with PPP.
