Canadian Parliament Exposes Pak Army Chief Gen. Bajwa as Violator of Human Rights

Visit of Pakistan’s Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa to Canada came under heated discussion in the Canadian Parliament on Monday.

Parliamentary Secretary of Canadian Defense Ministry Bryan May says allocation of the $50,000 for the reception of Pakistan’s Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa was ‘inappropriate’. His comments came in response to a fiery speech of the Canadian parliamentarian Tom Kmiec who slammed his government for approving the amount for COAS Bajwa’s reception from the taxpayer money of Canada.

COAS Bajwa was expected to visit Canada back in 2020. The official visit was later canceled due to COVID-19.

The parliamentarian in his speech recalled how the Assistant Deputy Defense Minister called the allocation of the amount ‘appropriate’ for the visit of Pakistan’s COAS Qamar Bajwa.

Tom Kmiec said Bajwa is accused of toppling two civilian governments. Adding that military under his command is accused of human rights abuses, and extradition killings and has links to terror groups. He asked if the Defense Ministry still shares the same view.

It is worth mentioning that Tom Kmiec is a Canadian politician affiliated with Conservative Party of Canada, who serves as the Member of Parliament for Calgary Shepard in the House of Commons of Canada.
