Press Release, June 2, 2009
The kidnapping of 500 students of the Razmak Cadet College by the Taliban is hair raising. It is yet another barbaric act, which shows, without any doubt that the Taliban and their allies are the greatest threat to peace within Pakistan. They have crossed all limits and there cannot be any reconciliation with militant forces that terrorize and hurt innocent children. HRCP calls upon all educational institutions to express their solidarity with the missing children so that the Taliban and their supporters realise that their inhuman acts are revolting and repulsive.
