Pakistan police outrageously mistreat Afghan refugees

18 November 2015 20:51


Human Rights Watch says living conditions have worsened for the Afghan refugees who were forced from homes after a deadly 2014 attack on a school by the Taliban militants in Pakistan’s northwestern city of Peshawar.

The New York-based HRW said in its recent report, ‘What Are You Doing Here?’: Police Abuses against Afghans in Pakistan, that senior authorities in Islamabad must take serious steps ‘to end police threats and violence against its approximately three million Afghan refugees.’

“The Pakistani police’s outrageous mistreatment of Afghans over the past year calls for an immediate government response,” the report said, adding, “The Pakistani government should press the police to apprehend perpetrators of atrocities instead of scapegoating the entire Afghan community.”
