United States members of Congress delivered a letter urging United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken to persuade the Government of Pakistan towards a greater commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rules of law, according to a press release.

As supporters of a strong bilateral US-Pakistan relationship, United States Congress members have become increasingly concerned about the current situation in Pakistan, which includes bans on demonstrations and the deaths of government critics.

In this critical moment, US diplomatic leadership is necessary to prevent further erosion of democratic protections. This letter makes our position clear — supporting democracy in Pakistan is in the national interest of the United States of America.

Strong, democratic Pakistan critical to US interests: state department spokesperson

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a senior leader United States Congress, has spoken by Zoom with Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.

United States law makers are becoming very concerned from the news coming out of Pakistan. Torture, arrests of political leaders, rape and torture of women who are demonstrating, torture of journalists and this behavior is nothing new as it is just being repeated as it was also done when East Pakistan separated from Pakistan forming Bangladesh.

United States law makers are being urged by Pakistani Americans to put U.S sanction on Pakistan Government officials who are involved in human right violations.

Pakistani Americans here in America have an interesting history. They first went Modi bashing and wrote to Congress to intervene. Then they went India bashing and wrote to Congress to intervene on Kashmir. Now they have gone full circle, and finally went Pakistan/PDM bashing and went to Congress to intervene.

The original narrative of Imran Khan regarding US involvement in his dismissal has taken a HUGGGGEEE U Turn! Seems he was living on support from Foreign powers!

I agree. Looks like a rerun of 1971. The aftermath may be the same too. Thanks again to a Niazi

Pakistani Americans are turning on Pakistan. Is this not blatant interference? Of all people, they have John Bolten the war monger talk to IK and issue a statement. John Bolten is hated in America and he is batting for IK. Ik accused the US of toppling him, and now they want the US to help him. If this is not laughable, what is it.

"Do not let your hatred of a people cause you to be unjust." (Quran 5:8) This is not for the Imran haters and Amreeka haters. They can hate them, and let their hate envelop them to their own demise.
