PAKPAC Statement on Emergency

The imposition of emergency in Pakistan is an extreme measure in response to the rapidly deteriorating law and order situation in Pakistan . It is regrettable that Pakistan is confronted by such grave challenges where law enforcement agencies, the Armed Forces and moderate forces are increasingly becoming a victim of terrorism through suicide bombings, says a PAKPAC statement. It adds:
The Pakistani American Public Affairs Committee (PAKPAC) urge President Musharraf to continue to maintain his resolve to fight terrorism and expeditiously take steps to restore complete democracy in Pakistan. The countless sacrifices made by the people of Pakistan including the armed forces should not be in vain. A stable, secure and democratic Pakistan is a must to win the US led global war against terrorism.
The Pakistani American Public Affairs Committee (PAKPAC) is a nationwide, membership based, not for-profit lobbying organization registered with the US Federal Election Commission. PAKPAC's mission is to advance and strengthen US-Pakistan relations, while working tirelessly to preserve, protect and promote ideals of civil liberties commonly cherished by all Americans.
