Islamabad, March 13, IRNA – Senior Pakistani journalist on Tuesday said that United States is committing brutal human rights abuses in different parts of the world.

Talking to IRNA, Rahimullah Yusufzai said that American forces are involved in human rights violations on a large scale across the globe.

He said that American forces do not follow the laws of other countries because in that case they cannot commit human rights violations.

He said that the main demand of the US in possible strategic agreement with Afghanistan is that the American forces would not obey laws of Afghanistan.

“Many people in Syria, Bahrain, Iraq and Afghanistan are being killed because of the aggressive foreign policy of the United States,” said the analyst.

Rahimullah Yusufzai recalled the incidents of gross human rights violation by US in Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

The analyst expressing his views said even many people in United States admit that their government is involved in human rights violations in the world. He was of the view that small countries must stand up and do not accept American demands.

He said that supporting the Zionist regime is itself the biggest human rights violation committed by the US. “They are silent over the atrocities of Zionist regime.” He added.

The senior journalist went on to say that US always vetoes resolutions against Zionist regime and is supporting the illegitimate state at all international forums.

Rahimullah Yusufzai was of the opinion that analysts even in the US do not support their government’s foreign policy regarding Zionist regime.

He stressed the need of unity among Muslim Ummah to counter anti-Islam policies of the western world. He said that Muslim world is blessed with enormous natural recourses and has the capacity to stand up against the western hegemony.

He added that many Muslim countries are situated in strategically important regions yet they are not as powerful as they should be.

The analyst said that Muslim rulers need political will. The analyst said that all Muslim nations are against America and Zionist regime but their rulers are pro-Americans.

He said that rulers of Muslim countries must come out of American influence and take the decisions which are in the interest of their people.

Rahimullah Yusufzai is the Resident/Executive Editor of the Jang group's “The NEWS international' at Peshawar Bureau.
