Drone attacks on Pakistani soil defy human rights and kill innocent citizens not involved in any criminal activity. People of that region do not have sophisticated military equipment to pose a threat to U.S.A; They have a right to oppose injustice done by USA on their soil.
Killing of innocent citizens is an inhuman act and need to be stopped immediately in Pakistan. USA need to be involved in peace activity and stop international genocide via wars and drones! No one has attacked us thus far and yet we make excuse to blow up innocent citizens of Pakistan!
We are responsible to control criminals on our soil only and need to stop terrorist acts against civilians!
In light of recent incident in Pakistan .i.e. girl shot by Taliban for campaigning for girls' rights to go to school, and the incident in India where a woman was raped on a bus by 6 men, such abuse should stop now.
We the undersigned call on the British government to put pressure on Pakistan and Indian governments to legislate for equal rights or women in their countries.
I am petitioning to all the Western Governments and specially the British Government to revoke visas and deny entry to all the feudals and the Ruling class from Pakistan against whom there is evidence of violation of Human Rights in Pakistan as the Pakistan Govt is complacent in their crimes against humanity.
Pakistan is a Islamic Republic nation which came into existence on the name of Islam. Pakistan constitution was reviewed based on Islamic sharia law.
Pakistan has population exceeding over 180 million people from different walk of life however what bring the whole nation in common is the religion Islam. Islam is the heart of Pakistan, without Islamic laws Pakistan is not Pakistan. Pakistan throughout the history since 1947 has been successful as fastest growing nation in technology, education, defense, Culture, Tourism, industry etc. The reason Pakistan was succeeding was because people knew this country has a bright futur , and people with that mindset use to invest their time, money and most of all their valuable potential of their knowledge in Pakistan so our country can benefit from it. Every culture in Pakistan had respect for different culture.
People from all over the world used to come to Pakistan to tour Pakistan, People use to participate their knowledge in different industry so Pakistan can flourish in economy. With passion people use to play sports and take initiative in going into navy, army etc. People from different country use to take advantage of high standard of education system in Pakistan. There has been many successful leaders of Pakistan throughout the history however some of the corruption started in Pakistan in late 80s and 90s but things were still not bad as they are right now. With the right leaders things gradually improved in 1999 when Musharraf came into power and slowly Pakistan was developing as a nation in every aspect of good achievements for Pakistan.
However one by one those good moments from Pakistan was melting like a cube of ice melting as the time continues. One of the biggest reason Pakistan has suffered is because of The news media which brought more negativity by only telling the negatives in Pakistan , splitting views of people , confusing people , Dividing people by making politicians fight on personal likes and dislikes. This news media has totally damaged the view of Pakistan as being a progressive nation. If you go search on Wikipedia every news channels broadcast on our television is privately owned channels, which has no proof of any non-relation of the owner with party leaders. Anyone can buy a portion of time by paying channels to express their views by hiding the realities for their own benefits so i think there should be a law which should limit the channels by making them non private so people from different walk of life invest in the channels and so channels cannot broadcast something for their own personal likes , dislikes or being attached to one view.
All my friends who love Pakistan as a nation Please sign this petition so The supreme court can take action so we all can have respect for our identity as Pakistani by focusing on realities as well as positives and by not getting divided by looking at different private news channels. Please Sign this petition.
I am Ahmadi, a minority Muslim group, that is being prosecuted and victimized by masses and state in Pakistan.
I seek asylum but face difficulty in proving my case as we cannot provide excessive documentation in support of our cases and UKBA could deport us that could result in systematic target killing of us.
Recently EU Court of Justice has also recognized our miseries. I request all kind hearted people in UK to support my cause to let my family stay in UK to avoid prosecution.
We demand that Mir Waheed Zehri must be granted asylum for his own safety - NOW!
As a Christian he would face a very real threat of abuse, intimidation, separation, unfair working conditions, persecution, torture and a very possible death in Pakistan.
11 year old Rimsha, a Christian living in Mehrebed, was arrested on August 16 with claims against her by a local iman of blasphemy, including that she conspired against Islam by burning pages from a children's religious book inscribed with verses from the Quran. We demand her release and her protection as well as that of her family.
Pakistan’s draconian blasphemy law has been used, time and again, to settle personal scores, and it has provided impetus to religious intolerance and sectarian violence.
Making innocent children targets of such sectarian hatred is extremely immoral and deserves global condemnation.
The "Last Resort" show is about the renegade crew of a United States Navy Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, the fictional USS Colorado (SSBN-753), that defies an order to launch nuclear missiles towards Pakistan, a decision that cost the previous commanding officer his job when he refused to follow similar orders without an explanation or confirmation.
When his replacement also questions the same orders, the vessel is fired upon without warning and the crew are left for dead. Realizing that they have been declared enemies of their own country, they set up camp on the fictional island of Sainte Marina, and declare themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability.
At the same time, the crew must find a way to prove their innocence and find out who set them up so that they can return home to America.
A down's syndrome girl (aged between 10 to 11) was accused of blasphemy and has been arrested by Pakistani police.
The girl will be sentenced to death according to Pakistan's law for blasphemy.
This letter will be sent to the European Organization for Pakistani Minority the June 17, 2013.

We are the descendants of the founders of Pakistan, but we have no identity in Pakistan. We have land for millions of Muslims in the name of Islam, but we are without land ourselves.
We gave sacrifices of over 2 million lives for making Pakistan, a reality in 1947 and we offered sacrifices of seven hundred thousand more lives for saving Pakistan in 1971, but still we are not recognized as true Pakistanis. It has been more than 64 years since the creation of Pakistan, but we are still called as the Mohajirs in this land of the pure. We are addressing you with high hopes.
We are confident that you will look upon the descendants of the founders of Pakistan with kindness. We hope this because Pakistan and the Mohajirs are inseparable from each other. The Mohajirs are the true defendants of the Ideology of Pakistan, and their salvation lies in the survival of the country. The more this bond strengthens, the stronger and more prosperous Pakistan would be.
The patriotic forces should get united for the survival and security of the country, particularly at a time when the country is faced with internal and external threats and when the perpetual enemies of Islam are bent upon destroying the fortress of Islam that Pakistan is. It is all the more necessary to get united when the history also bears out that the number of people wanting to disintegrate Pakistan is more from within the country itself.
The Mohajirs are against all those that are working against the country for their vested interests by carrying out terrorism, spreading chaos and anarchy, and those who are busy in weakening the ideological boundaries of the country on the basis of language, religion, and culture. The Mohajirs have strong feelings for the country, and they have the courage to lay down their lives for the survival and security of their country just like their forefathers. They are no less powerful against these forces, whether working for a Greater Afghanistan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, people wanting a free Balochistan or those having the vicious aim of transforming Sindh into a Sindh Desh, than the armed forces of the country and other patriotic forces against the elements conspiring against Pakistan. They only need a chance to prove their patriotism.
The war in Afghanistan costs thousands of lives and trillions of dollars in defense of a corrupt and unpopular regime, one that is entirely dependent on Western troops and aid.
The war has inflamed Muslim opinion and failed to make Europe or the United States safer. Morality is undermined by recent NATO claims of no “confirmed” civilian casualties.
This letter will be sent to Ambassador Tehmina Janjua (Embassy of Pakistan in Italy) on April 16, 2012. You can add your signature to letter through this petition. Thanks to all those who decide to sign!
Asia Noreen, better known as Asia Bibi, is a Pakistani Christian woman who has been convicted by a Pakistani court of blasphemy, receiving a death sentence by hanging.
The verdict, which would need to be upheld by a superior court, has received worldwide attention. If executed, Noreen would be the first person in Pakistan to be lawfully killed for blasphemy.
Karo-Kari is a heinous crime. It happens when family member or husband suspect a woman of illicit relations. In order to 'preserve' their family honour the woman is killed.
In most cases the accusers have little evidence to support their allegations. Since it is usually a husband, brother, father, cousin or uncle who carry out the deed the victim's family forgives the guilty party upon receiving 'blood money' and the perpetrator receives a short prison sentence.
If this is made Non-compoundable Homocide then it means that such compromises cannot be reached. Honour Killings occur in various parts of the world: India, the Middle East, the Americas, Europe and Africa.
WSPA LITERATURE. I HAVE SEEN HORRIBLE FOOTAGE OF BEARS BEING DRAGGED INTO THE RING. THEY DON'T WANT TO GO BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN - THEY HAVE BEEN THERE BEFORE.
THERE IS ONE BRAVE NATIVE MAN IN PAKISTAN WHO IS TRYING TO STOP THIS, HE HAS GOT A REFUGE FOR RESCUED BEARS. HE IS PUTTING HIS OWN LIFE IN DANGER AND HE REALLY NEEDS FUNDS.
A recent United Nations report suggests that the United States and NATO allies are outsourcing torture and human rights violations in Afghanistan. The report concludes that there is a continuing pattern and practice of “systematic” torture in spite of repeated efforts at reform. (UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, October 2011)
Current US policy violates the Leahy Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and Defense Appropriations Act (Sec. 563, P.L. 106-429 and Sec. 8092, P.L. 106-259, 2001).
The September 22 testimony of Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, may well “pave the way… to new unilateral military actions inside Pakistan,” including more drone strikes and, “even cross border raids into Pakistan to root out insurgents from their havens.” (New York Times, September 22-23, 2011)
After Mullen’s testimony, the Heritage Foundation immediately called for aggressive military and diplomatic escalation. (Christian Science Monitor, September 26, 2011) House Republicans are pushing an open-ended authorization for war against any insurgents anywhere in the world “associated” with the Taliban or Al Qaeda.
Enough is enough. Escalation in Pakistan is not in the national security interest of the United States. Already our drone attacks have provoked two terrorist near misses against American civilians, one at the Detroit airport on Christmas Day 2009 and another at Times Square on May 1, 2010. It is not in the economic interest of the United States; we cannot afford another trillion-dollar war. It is not in the moral interest of the United States; the drone attacks kill innocent people and inflame millions of Pakistanis against America.
The military pursuit of terrorist sanctuaries, first in Iraq and then in Afghanistan, has left behind thousands dead and wounded and only pushed the sanctuaries to new locations. Each escalation begets another. Besides Pakistan, our government is pursuing undeclared air wars against terrorist cells with drone attacks in Somalia and Yemen. (Washington Post, September 20, 2011)
It makes no sense to escalate attacks against the Pakistan sanctuaries of the Afghan Taliban while the US ends its combat role, gradually withdraws from Afghanistan, and supports a power-sharing arrangement with all parties. It is irrational to bomb the Taliban’s sanctuaries while inviting them to the peace table. A genuine diplomatic settlement requires a phased ending of the drone attacks as US troops phase out their role in Afghanistan.
Sending in ground troops backed by air power is as foolish as President Nixon’s 1970 invasion of Cambodia allegedly to wipe out Vietcong sanctuaries.
Pakistani Hindus are 4.5 million, a large minority, being long term inhabitants (for hundreds years).
In Pakistan almost all the religious communities have their respective marriages registration rules and certificate of marriages for married couples, except Hindu community. For Muslims, in the year of 1961-62 laws and rules were framed to register the Muslim marriages. According to these regulations a Muslim marriage is registered with an officially appointed person, which is called “Nikah-Khawan” in vernacular language. The official is duly appointed by the government, with a license to issue certificate of marriage that is “Nikah-Naama”. The certificate is a recognized deed with presumption that the marriage is consummated and performed legally, in accordance with law. The document is acceptable to all government and private departments.
The courts of the land are also bound to give presumption of truth to the certificate of the marriage, meaning there by, that the persons are legally husband and wife. Same is the case with Pakistani Christians, Parsis, Sikhs and other minorities. Why not Pakistani Hindus? The Question is substantial.
The Pakistani Hindu couples face lots of problems due to non availability of their certificate of marriages.
1. The couples are without legal entity and proof of their spouse ship.
2. The acknowledgement of their matrimonial relationship is at the sweet will of concerned authorities or departments in Pakistan, whether the officials recognize them as husband and wife or otherwise.
3. For the preparation of necessary documents like National Identity Card, Domicile, Passports and other documents the marital status of the applicant is mandatory. Questions and required answers like; whether one is married or bachelor? If married, the name of spouse? Proof of marriage? Any certificate of marriage? Identity of the spouse with documents?-----are always problematic for the Hindu married applicants. At the moment the couples are helpless, at the mercy and grace of those officials. Here the couples may be refused or graced to be awarded with the document. The non availability of the marriage certificate, sometime, begets corruption syndrome.
4. Sometimes, in court cases husband, refuses to recognize the other partner as his/her better half to avoid financial liability of wife and kids. Even in a number of cases the parentage ship of the children were denied by the father. In this situation the lady wife is in predicament to prove her wife ship or/and parentage ship of her minor children, as she has no document, at all, to prove her version.
5. During travelling on their way, on public places, hotels & motels, especially on police checking, the Hindu couples are in miserable position to prove them to be the husband and wife. Because on a number of occasions the proof of husband and wife is mandatory requirement.
6. Likewise in civil, family and criminal matters in the society, law enforcement agencies and courts, the Hindu couples faces a lot of problems.
Most people are interested in seeing a picture of Osama bin laden dead. The picture of him dead is a fake. We should be able to see the REAL pictures.
I don't think that releasing them will do any harm.
The United States has continued to funnel billions of dollars to the Pakistani armed forces in sophisticated weapons and cash – most recently a $3.4 billion package announced in October 2010 under the State Department’s Foreign Military Finance Program, and another $3 billion is scheduled to go to Pakistan this year.
Bin Laden's discovery in a wealthy suburb of Abbottabad raises more than a few questions over US military funding to Pakistan.
After years of former Pakistani military dictator General Musharraf assuring the world that bin Laden was either dead or in Afghanistan, he was found and dispatched by US special forces in the town of Abbottabad, a mere 30 miles – 50km – as the crow flies from the capital Islamabad.
By 2008, the United States political and military leadership had lost all remnants of faith in the trustworthiness of the Pakistani military and its intelligence wing, the ISI, internally acknowledging that it consistently "hunted with the hounds and ran with the hares", including the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqanis, and the Lashkar-e-Taiba – and was involved in planning terrorist attacks from Kabul to Mumbai.
The horrifying video reported by Jane Perlez in an article of New York Times on September 29, 2010, showing Pakistan Army officers mass-killing six innocent blind-folded young men with their hands tied-back, has shocked the world.
The way the Pakistani soldiers shot and killed the young men some of them as young as 14 years and then shooting at short range on those who were still alive and wounded, to finish them, dwarfs the atrocities committed by chetnik Serbs in Bosnia & Herzegovina. http://observers.france24.com/content/20101025-pakistan-s...
“A Pakistani intelligence official, who did not want to be identified discussing the issue, said he had seen other such videos and heard reports of executions larger than the one in the video”, the report goes on to says. Pakistani Military has now embarked on treating the Pashtuns the same way they used to treat Bengalis before 1971 partition. The same treatment of mass-killings both by the Military and Jamat-e-Islami in those days is repeated in Pashtun Areas now. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA and Karachi are red with Pashtun Blood. Since, 2004, more than 600 schools have been destroyed by these terrorists which means that our area is quickly drifting towards a stone-age-era. Most of the prominent elders, journalists, educationists and human rights activists have been killed by both Pakistani Military and Taliban. The Pashtun culture and tradition of Pakhtunwali is in danger of extinction. More than 1500 Maliks (prominent elders) have been killed in FATA, as confirmed by independent sources. Pashtun nationalism is on rise in retaliation to the atrocities committed by Saudi-funded Taliban and the Pakistani Military. I request all the Pashtuns to stand against these atrocities and protect our centuries old traditions of Pakhtunwali which are in danger due to continuous onslaught of Talibans and Pakistani Military.
Some reports, particularly from Waziristan, that the State Department was reviewing were increasingly specific and credible, a senior US Administration official is reported to have said. If proper action is not taken in time by International Community, the 3000-10000 prisoners rounded up by Pakistan Army during their fake operations against insurgents, can also be killed extra-judicially by Army in the same pattern.
In my Article titled “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is burning”, published on August 26, 2010, a detailed description of the situation is made. Mass graves discovered at different locations in Swat as confirmed by Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), Amnesty International (AI) and Human Rights Watch (HRW): reminds of the Serb genocide of 1995 in the city of Srebrenica in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Many more undiscovered Mass-graves are waiting to be unearthed, if and when International Human Rights Organizations will be allowed to enter FATA. The magnitude and scale of torture, killing and forced disappearances by Military Establishment of Pakistan dwarfs the Chilean Dictator, General Augusto Pinochet.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan is powerless, as its orders to produce missing persons before the court for trial are thrown into dustbin by Military Establishment. Credible media reports suggest that some 2,500 people were in detention in the first half of 2010…the numbers subjected to enforced disappearances could be much higher. These detainees are not held under any clear legal framework under Pakistan’s law, a report by Amnesty International published in July this year, confirms. Hundreds of thousands of FATA’s nearly four million residents have fled the increasing brutality of the Pakistani Taleban and of the government’s military response.
We Pashtuns of Pakistan request the International Community to help try all the responsible including the Army high Command who ordered the killings of civilians, in the International Criminal Court. If the Serbs who committed genocide are brought to Hague to face justice then why Pakistan Army Generals cannot be tried in Hague? What hinders International Community from bringing these clean-shaved uniformed Taliban to Hague to try them for crimes against humanity and genocide? If these Generals are above the law? Is the International Justice system selective? Ample evidence is there to prove that, as different International Human rights Organizations like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Human Rights Commission of Pakistan have investigated these atrocities and have presented the evidence in their respective reports.
Recently in a shocking move, the present government approved the shredding of Higher Education Commission into pieces. This includes its devolution from a federal level to provincial.
This is disastrous for the future of Pakistan as it will lead to horrendous problems. It will lead to the same chaotic situation that exists in our schools. Formula-based funding will be replaced with political favoritism.
We cannot be bystanders as the HEC is shredded into pieces. (Excerpts from Dr Atta-Ur-Rahman’s Article)
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) needs our voice to 'BE HEARD'. With close to 1million South Asians living in Chicago and surrounding suburbs there is a great need for our community to have a 24x7 FM radio station.

The United States cannot afford a deepening quagmire in Libya. We call on President Obama to seek authorization from the U.S. Congress for his Libyan bombing campaign, including a mission statement limited to protecting Libyan civilians, a viable diplomatic strategy, an exact cost projection, and a timeline for the rapid withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops before the war becomes another quagmire.
In October 2002, President General Musharaf issued an ordinance LXXXV of 2002, section 489- F PPC which targeted the crime of presenting bogus cheques and converted this civil offence to a criminal offence. However, the section lost its legal authority and validity due to lack of ratification from the national assembly.
Despite the clear guideline from the Supreme Court in its dealing with the National Reconciliation Ordinance, the above-mentioned clause is still being used by the police, solicitors and judiciary.
The point of this petition is to bring your attention to this matter and relieve thousands of Pakistanis rotting in the prisons. Most of these poor fellows have been framed by family feuds, blackmailers and wicked business partners and have been denied bail citing the LXXXV of 2002 section 489- F PPC.
For ten years now there have been acts of war being waged on the citizens of Pakistan and Afghanistan. These acts are being carried out by the their own military and also the military of the United States. Their own government along with the United States and other UN allies are agreeing to continue military operations. Operations which are violating the liberties of those native people living in what has been deemed a war zone.
Now it's time they rethink their strategies. Human rights, liberty and justice need to be upheld. The conditions are becoming exceedingly desperate for these people. The area is destabilizing more and more the longer we wait. This will continue to put the youth at further risk and those who are vulnerable will become exploited or radicalized. Even though both governments claim they are doing what they can to combat this, little has been seen in the way of progress.
We object to the United States proposal for Afghanistan being presented this week to NATO ministers.
It is not a peace plan. It is a plan for four more years of combat by US and NATO forces.
It is not a plan for US or Western troop withdrawals but for further occupation. It is a proposal to gradually lessen Western casualties and lessen Western visibility while transitioning to Western-financed, Western-armed, and Western-advised Afghan army combat in a civil conflict. It is a plan for long-term Western military bases.
It is not a plan to stop al Qaeda or terrorists from attacking Western targets. There are virtually no al Qaeda left in Afghanistan. The most recent terrorist attacks on America have been inspired by our deepening wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan. In seeking to save our military reputation, we all but assure future threats against Western targets. CIA officials even describe Yemen’s al Qaeda cell as more dangerous than al Qaeda in Pakistan. [NYT, Oct. 18, 2010]
It pre-empts the Administration’s own proposal for a full “review” of Afghan policy in December. The timing instead is aimed at shoring up a faltering Western alliance.
The central proposal--to increase the scale of the Afghan army and police in order to prop up a corrupt Kabul regime--will never work without a parallel cease-fire, deep institutional reform, enforceable human rights, and peace-keeping arrangements with leadership by neutral countries.
The current expenditure of over $100 billion American dollars per year for Afghanistan could be spent on medical care for 15 million veterans, or 15 million college scholarships, or 1.8 million new teachers, or 72 million installations of renewable energy for American homes.
Despite of the fact that it's the basic right of every citizen to get passport of their nationality however Pakistani secrete agencies are interfering for the issuance of new passports to the family members of United Kashmir People's National Party's chairman Sardar Shaukat Ali Kashmir.
Although, the civilian and elected Home Minister Rehman Malik has ordered to the Pakistani High Commission in Switzerland to issue passports, but the agencies are forcing High Commission not to issue the passports.
Since the passports and fee is deposited seven months ago, still this family is waiting for their passports, which is a basic and fundamental right of every citizen of Kashmir.
We, the people and the friends of Pakistan, denounce and strongly protest against the violation of Human Rights of two individuals in Sialkot who were brutally killed in public on the 15th of August 2010.
The two young brothers, Hafiz Muneeb, aged 19, and Hafiz Mughees, aged 15, became victims of mob fury on August 15 2010. While the Sialkot District Police Officer, Waqar Ahmed Chauhan, and eight other police officers remained silent spectators, the mob went on with the brutal beating session which led to their deaths. The bodies were then hanged upside down by the mob on a crossing. It went on to become a matter of national concern when the video footage of the brutal crime was aired repeatedly on a private television channel and then played in front of the courtroom.
The following Universal Declaration of Human Rights were violated for these two young men.
No 3. The Right to Life
No 5. No Torture
No 7. We ‘re All Equal Before the Law.
No 8. Your Human Rights are Protected by Law
No 11. We’re Always Innocent Till Proven Guilty.

Innocent lives have been taken in the presence of the police-force and presence of public. Both failed to take action to protect the rights of others.
Pakistan has regular instances of the killing of innocent people. The newspapers provide details of these incidents. They have become a norm in daily lives of the public of Pakistan. Lawlessness is on the increase. Unless we start a massive campaign of Human Rights for all, we are promoting Human Rights violations.
The spectators of Human Rights violations who do nothing to stop it, are themselves part of the violation of Human Rights. The truth is that the spectators failed to take responsibility for others in this incident.
Human Rights No 29 states: We have a duty to other people and we should protect their rights and freedoms.
WE ARE PLANNING A MASSIVE GLOBAL "e-Protest" TO RAISE OUR VOICE.
WORKING WITH "YOUTH FOR HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL'' WE ARE TARGETING AT LEAST 10,000 SIGNATURES ACROSS THE GLOBE. WE WILL SEND THIS PETITION TO the GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN, SUPREME COURT OF PAKISTAN, UNITED NATIONS, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS, POLITICIANS, PRESS AND MEDIA.
This Petition is about Aqila, she is married to her husband in England and brought back to Pakistan without her child. The husband now has got the child and Aqila has not any chance to see her child again.
