Citizens of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) deserve equal rights. Citizens of FATA deserve to be treated the same as all other citizens of Pakistan. FATA citizens deserve equal human, political and fundamental constitutional rights. Article 247 of the Constitution of Pakistan denies FATA citizens from enjoying the same rights as other Pakistanis. Only the National Assembly has the power to amend the constitution and correct this injustice. Members of the National Assembly should act today to amend Article 247 and provide equal rights to tribal citizens.
People in the tribal areas are also citizens of Pakistan and deserve to be treated fairly and equally with the rest of the country.
Please amend Article 247 of the Constitution to guarantee equal fundamental rights for all citizens of the FATA.
