Well Done Raza Rabbani

Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)


Deputy Chairman Senate Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, who was to represent Pakistan at the UN-sponsored International Parliamentary Union (IPU) being held in New York next week would not be able to do so as the US has failed to issue the visa to him.

Though the Maulana was not expected to contribute much on an issue entitled “World of blue: preserving the oceans, safeguarding the planet, ensuring human well-being in the context of the 2030 agenda,” nor would he be any conspicuous by his absence there in a galaxy of hundreds of delegates from all over the world, yet the Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani’s orders to boycott the New York moot and not to entertain any American diplomats in the Senate is highly commendable.  Well Done, Sir.

Was the visa refused because of the Maulana Haideri being the Secretary General of the JUI (F), which the US considers as a fundamentalist party or for some other reason? The US certainly owes the Pak Govt. an explanation for that.
