Pakistan's Track Record of Human Rights

On the other hand, the report on the state of Human Rights in Pakistan during 1990 and 1991, prepared by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan is an eye opener about denial of basic rights to the majority of the population.

According to the commission:

"The state has shown little interest in accepting the international Human Rights standards".
"The courts cannot invoke international Human Rights values as is being done in several countries such as India because the state does not acknowledge them".
"Lack of interest in bringing the country's basic law in conformity with international Human Rights and norms, keeps alive the danger of new encroachments on whatever fundamental rights are provided in the constitution, particularly through the exploitation of religion".
"A particularly reprehensible tendency is for the state to free itself of its human rights obligations on the pretext of the supremacy of belief, tradition or custom".
Similarly, Pakistan which smugly claims to be a champion of Human Rights in Kashmir has steadfastly and deliberately ignored the following International conventions and protocols on Human Rights by declining to even sign them:
-- International Convenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights;
-- International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights;
-- Optional Protocol to the International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights;
-- Second Optional Protocol to the International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights aiming at the abolition of the death penalty;
-- International Convention against Apartheid in sports;
-- Convention on the Non-applicability of Statutory Limitations to War Crimes and Crimes against humanity;
-- Convention on the elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)
-- Convention on consent to Marriage, Minimum age for Marriage and Registration of Marriages;
-- Convention on the Reduction of statelessness;
-- Convention relating to the Status of stateless persons;
-- Convention relating to the Status of Refugees;
-- Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees.
