This is in response to the death of Sanaullah, a Pakistani prisoner in India, who having served his sentence, was still being held there, against all international norms and practices. What surprises me is the silence of self-proclaimed ‘Human Rights’ activists like Ansar Burney, Asma Jhangir, Abdul Sattar Edhi and a section of politically motivated foreign funded NGO’s, who were so vocal demanding release of Sarabjit Singh, but did not say a word till his death about Sanaullah and numerous other prisoners held even after they have served their sentence?

Why this contradiction and hypocrisy of our so-called champions of human rights, who would not hesitate to protest against their own state for any alleged abuse, but are tight lipped when it comes to others?
