Islamabad, August 10, 2021 (PPI-OT):Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri has categorically rejected the unsubstantiated media reports about Pakistan’s alleged crackdown on overseas dissidents. In response to media queries regarding these baseless allegations, he said there is no question of any threat being made to any national of any state, including Pakistan’s own nationals living anywhere, on any pretext whatsoever.
The spokesperson said the unsubstantiated allegations appear to be part of the rather blatant ongoing misinformation campaign against Pakistan to malign the country and its state institutions. He said Pakistan is a parliamentary democracy with a vibrant civil society, free media and independent judiciary, which remains fully committed to promotion and protection of human rights for all its citizens without discrimination.
