Pak Army terms Human Rights Watch report 'propaganda driven, biased'

Rawalpindi, Feb. 3 (ANI): The Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR), media wing of the Pakistan Army, has termed the recent report by the Human Rights Watch (HRW) "a pack of lies, propaganda driven and totally biased".

The 635-page HRW World Report 2013 launched in late January, had alleged that the Pakistani government had failed to act against abuses by security and intelligence agencies and allowed extremist groups to attack religious minorities.

An ISPR spokesperson said in a statement that the report was yet another attempt to malign Pakistan and its institutions through fabricated and unverified reports, completely favouring an anti-Pakistan agenda, reports The Express Tribune.

The statement further said that the HRW has no credibility and has been criticised world wide for raising controversies through its biased reports and funding from certain quarters and many countries across the world have rejected its reports. (ANI)
