Misleading Senate: Rangers Submitted Bogus Organization's Report

A privilege motion against the Pakistan Rangers was submitted with the Senate chairman on Wednesday for misleading the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights, claiming that the declared international organisation endorsing "Rangers Karachi Operation as Humanitarian" is FAKE.

PPP Senator Farhatullah Babar informed the committee that the privilege motion notice had been submitted by him. The lawmaker said he had searched for the international human rights organisation and called people in Pakistan, India and Nepal who said the body “Human Rights Commission South Asia” did not exist.

“All individuals [had] disassociated themselves from the fake organisation,” Mr Babar said.

“The Human Rights Commission South Asia seems to be a bogus organisation created primarily by the vested interests for propaganda purpose,” he said, adding that “the submission of the report of a bogus organisation to defend the human rights record of a law enforcement agency has only undermined its own credibility”.

During a meeting of the committee in July, Col Qaiser Khattaq, who is said to be overseeing the Karachi operation, said that an international human rights organisation had endorsed the operation.

Mr Babar had challenged the Rangers’ claim and asked Col Khattaq to submit a copy of the report in the committee’s next meeting.
However, when the committee met on Wednesday, representatives from Pakistan Rangers were absent.

In a letter to the committee, the Rangers said its representatives would not be available until November “due to prevailing law and order situation of the Metropolitan city”.

The committee rejected the Rangers’ explanation.

“We want the law enforcement agency to answer for misleading parliament by quoting the report of a non-existing fictional international human rights body,” said Mr Babar, adding that the credibility of Pakistan Rangers had been stained because of this move.

The committee was unanimous in expressing concern over the continued absence of Rangers representatives from the meetings and demanded their presence at the next meeting.

“There is no justification whatsoever for the Rangers’ absence,” said Mohsin Leghari, adding that it only gave a bad name to the institution.
However, PML-N Senator Nisar Muhammad defended the operation. “Karachi is a changed city only because of Rangers,” he said.
