Pakistani courts to decide Dr Shakeel Afridi’s fate


WEB DESK: Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said the fate of Doctor Shakeel Afridi is going to be decided by Pakistani courts, and not by any US presidential candidate.

He was reacting to the interview of US presidential candidate Donald Trump on Fox News.

Khan said that Afridi is a Pakistani citizen and nobody else has the right to dictate us about his future.

He said Trump also seems to be ignorant of the huge scarifies Pakistan and its people have made, while standing with or supporting US policies over the years.

The Republican front-runner in the interview had said that if elected he will free Afridi.

“I think I would get him out in two minutes,” he said in response to a question during a Fox News interview Thursday.

“I would tell them let him out and I’m sure they would let him out.”

Trump had said that he plans to leverage US aid, “because we give a lot of aid to Pakistan. We give a lot of money to Pakistan.”
