Last Friday, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) on Friday expressed concern over the rise in violent incidents across the country. In a statement, the Commission said: “HRCP notes with great alarm the rise in grisly incidents of violence all over Pakistan. Beginning with the abduction in Peshawar and cold-blooded murder of 21 Levies personnel, the killing of seven aid workers in Swabi, the murder of polio vaccinators in Karachi and Peshawar, the FC operation in Awaran, and now young doctors beating their seniors in Gujranwala, hardly a week goes by when violence of ever more disturbing nature does not make the headlines.”
HRCP stressed the need for “soul searching” over the incidents and said that compassionate human beings were the basis of every developed society.
