Lahore:The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Saturday said US reaction on the conviction of Dr. Shakil Afridi is an evidence enough to prove him an American agent.
The convicted medical practitioner should also be tried for launching a fake vaccination campaign and shattering trust of masses which are already against vaccinations, it said.
Dr. Shakil Afridi is an American intelligence operator and any leniency will encourage other spies working in Pakistan to destabilise country, said Dr. Murtaza Mughal, President PEW.
He said that American threats are interference in internal matters of Pakistan which should be rejected.
Afridi should be shifted to some undisclosed destination to ensure his security, said Dr. Murtaza Mughal.
He said that top US officials should stop telling Pakistan what is in there interest. Similarly our embassy in Washington should act in Pakistan’s interest and stop supporting US interests.
Any mercy towards the traitor will not only encourage US spies but also discourage patriots, warned Dr. Mughal.
Those questioning the trial should know that the political administration in tribal areas have powers to try any resident under the FCR.
The convict is not ill; he is pretending to be ill to get special facilities in the Peshawar Central Prison. Why all the criminals get sick just after they are in trouble, he questioned.
US can take relations to point of no return for the safety of their undercover agent has done everything for money.
However, Islamabad seems reluctant to ask America to release an innocent lady like Dr. Aafia Siddiqi convicted for 86 years.
PEW demanded a thorough probe into the objectionable activities and links of Afridi.
