Imran slammed for silence on Uighurs


The World Uighur Congress on Monday came down heavily on the Pakistan Prime Minister, Mr. Imran Khan, over his 'double standards' and turning a blind eye towards the issue concerning the persecution of Uighur Muslims in China, saying it is a matter of shame that Islamabad was silent and supporting Beijing's policy on the minority community.

'A couple of months ago, international journalists asked him about this (Uighur issue) several times, but he said that he doesn't know and is not aware of it. The Pakistan Prime Minister very well knows what the Chinese government is doing to Uighur Muslims but he doesn't want to talk about this, the organisation's president, Mr. Dolkun Isa said in Geneva.
