star this property answer text <p>We regularly raise at the highest levels Pakistan’s human rights commitments including the misuse of blasphemy laws both against Muslims and against religious minorities. We are concerned to hear about the case of Asia Bibi and reports that a court has upheld the imposition of the death penalty. We have consistently pressed the Government of Pakistan on the issue of the death penalty and expressed our principled opposition to it in all cases and we will ensure that we continue to do so.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government of Pakistan’s stated objective for military operations in North Waziristan is to remove all militant groups and dismantle terrorist infrastructure. In its most recent public report, provided on 16 July, the Pakistan army report 447 insurgents killed, 32 surrendered, as well as destruction of 88 hideouts, 11 Improvised Explosive Device factories and 11 tons of explosive. The Pakistan government claim 992,000 people have been registered as displaced and have allocated 4.5 billion Pakistan rupees in assistance. It is for the Government of Pakistan to determine how to tackle the prolonged and deadly insurgency they face. The UK supports Pakistan as it tackles terrorism and violent extremism, and we will stand together to tackle terrorism and the extremism that sustains it. We expect all concerned to act in accordance with international law and take all feasible precautions to avoid civilian casualties.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office works through our Embassies and High Commissions, and through international organisations, including the Commonwealth, the EU and the UN, to promote tolerance and non-discrimination against LGBT people and to address discriminatory laws, in particular those that criminalise homosexuality. <br> <br>The UK has been a member of the LGBT core group in Geneva since 2011, playing a key role in passing the UN’s first ever resolution on LGBT rights and recently joined its counterpart group in New York.</p><p>Within the Commonwealth we continue to encourage the Secretariat and the Secretary-General to do more to promote the rights of its LGBT people. The former Foreign Secretary, my Rt hon friend the Member for Richmond, Yorks (William Hague), wrote to the Commonwealth Secretary-General in March urging him to take concrete action to address this issue within the Commonwealth.</p>

Although Mr Asghar currently faces the death penalty under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, he has appealed his sentence. We continue to urge that the Pakistani authorities give due consideration to his clearly documented history of mental illness. Given the recent shooting that resulted in Mr Asghar’s hospitalisation we continue to raise his safety and security in Pakistan as an issue of concern. The Pakistani Authorities are fully aware of the UK’s interest in Mr Asghar’s case.</p> more like this
