Pakistan’s Poor Human Rights Record and Torturing of Prisoners
The Pakistani authorities are infamous for their very poor human rights record, and notorious for mistreating and abusing their, in many instances, unlawfully detained prisoners. Muhanad was captured by the Pakistani Authorities and was not given his rights afforded to him by the Government of United States. Muhannad had no access to his government’s support systems, he was not afforded an attorney to defend him, nor was he even provided with access to a family or friends that could help him in his predicament while detained by the Pakistanis.
Below are the results of our research on how the Pakistani Government, which is funded by the United States Government in many aspects of its military, hence arguably following its instructions, mistreats and tortures prisoners captured by its forces. The record is especially grim with regard to those prisoners detained in counter-terrorism operations.
