Stop Racial Profiling of "Pashtuns" in Pakistan

"Pashtuns" are the inhabitants of Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Province bordering Afghanistan, who have been abused by Pakistan's powerful military for decades in pursuit of its strategic ambitions as well as to maintain its domestic hegemony over State Institutions. Consequently, majority of "Pashtuns" who are peaceful and patriotic citizens of Pakistan, bore the brunt of these ill-fated policies, as their land became the battle ground between the military and the monsters (Taliban) it had itself created. Many Pashtuns were internally displaced as the military continued their heavy handed but ineffective operations. Now Pakistan's military, instead of reviewing its failed policies, has launched another military operation in their area, while Pakistan's government has started "Racial Profiling" of Pashtuns which has made it impossible for them to live and work in other areas of Pakistan, especially in the dominant and prosperous Punjab Province.  

Through this petition, we at the Citizens Initiative for Adaptation (Worldwide) - which is an organization devoted to sustainable development in climate affected countries, urge the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and the powerful Chief of its Army, to stop these discriminatory policies as this would deprive millions of Pashtuns living in other parts of the Country of their livelihood as well as jeopardize their safety and security. 

Pakistan is already a severely climate-stressed country, such negative and anti-developmental policies will further compound its adaptation problems. Instead, we urge these powerful people to introspect and review their failed policies in order to overcome the problem of "terrorism".
