ISLAMABAD: The Senate was told on Wednesday that Government of Pakistan has rejected the report of United Nation regarding Pakistan not doing enough to stop human smuggling.

State Interior Minister Zafar Iqbal Warraich told Senate on Wednesday that Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Interior Ministry has taken meaningful steps to stop human trafficking in the country and the government has strongly rejected the UN report in this regard.

British High Commissioner in Pakistan himself lauded the role of FIA for stopping human smuggling and United State has deleted Pakistan’s name from its watch list, he added

Zafar Iqbal Warraich further said report of United Nation regarding Pakistan for not doing enough to stop human trafficking is baseless.

He said Pakistan has taken all steps to stop human smuggling due to which reservations of British and US in this regard has been removed.

Meanwhile, Federal Health Minister Nasser Khan told Upper House a particular lobby is working against Pakistan and several Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and European Countries are trying to defame Pakistan.

Easy said than proved.

The small self-serving and small fry in government occasionally make funny statements. Who would deny a report on Pakistan's in human trafficking when the Press reports support the UNO? We are, and treated as such, as a country with our democracy "in the works." Similar human trafficking did take place in the past in large numbers. The example of Chinese immigrants to the United States offers evidence. It is the uncertainties and lack of "rosegar" (jobs) that compel young people to seek better opportunities elsewhere. Of course the government is active in this field but the problem has its roots deeper in the society.
