New York: The United States exposed the double standards of Pakistan, which has no concern over the treatment of Muslims in China but shows a keen interest in Kashmir Muslims.
The United States asked Pakistan to express “same level” of concern about Muslims detentions in Western China as they do for Kashmir.
US Acting Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asia, Alice Wells vociferated, “I would like to see the same level of concern expressed also about Muslims who are being detained in Western China, literally in concentration-like conditions. And so being concerned about the human rights of Muslims does extend more broadly than Kashmir, and you’ve seen the administration very involved here during the UN General Assembly and trying to shine a light on the horrific conditions that continue to exist for Muslims throughout China.”
Pakistan has always been mum when asked about China’s treatment of Muslims and tries to brush aside saying that there is a lot going on in its own country.
China has been internationally accused of oppressing the Uighur by sending them to mass detention camps, interfering in their religious activities and forcing the community to undergo some form of re-education or indoctrination.
Once in an interview, Khan had admitted that Beijing is Islamabad’s “best friend”.
