Blogger Sabahat Ashraf, a Pakistani in Silicon Valley, runs iFaqeer, a blog that I read regularly. He has a new post, "Pride and Human Rights in Pakistan," alerting us to a new blog run by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. He says about HRCP:
This is the organization that gave the world it's first UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Arbitrary and Summary Executions. This is the organization Dr. Amartya Sen mentions when asked about Pakistan and how it's doing as a country.
And when the last coup happened, HRCP was "the only clear voice saying 'interrupting the flow of democracy is always a bad thing.'" From HRCP's site:
HRCP is an independent, voluntary, non-profit organisation which is not associated or affiliated with the government or any political party. It is committed to act with impartiality and objectivity in all matters. Among its main aims are spreading awareness of human rights among the people, mobilising public opinion, collecting information and disseminating knowledge about human rights abuses.
