President Donald Trump gets a snub from Pakistani Human Rights Minister

ISLAMABAD - Minister for Human Rights Dr. Shireen Mazari has expressed surprise at the US Administration’s decision to add Pakistan to the blacklist for religious freedom violations, terming it absurd and unacceptable.

In a statement, she said Washington is apparently using this as a brazen political tactic to pressure Pakistan to mitigate US failures in Afghanistan.

She said the deliberate ignoring of India’s shrinking space for its religious minorities by the United States while targeting Pakistan is absurd and unacceptable.
