Members of the American Congress have written a letter supporting democracy in Pakistan according to a new organization called Americans for Democracy and Justice in Pakistan. According to their website, the organization was founded by a group of Pakistani Americans to support the democratic process in Pakistan.
“Our goal is simple: Support the Pakistani people’s chosen leaders, whomever they may be, against misinformation, misrepresentation and unfounded attempts to undermine their authority,” Tanweer said. “We are American citizens but we still have close ties to our ancestral country and we welcome other Americans who support democracy and justice in Pakistan to join our cause.”
The organization also has a YouTube video in which the founding members discuss their organization’s goals.
This seems like an encouraging development. As the Pak-US talks show greater respect between the governments, also there appears to be a growing connection between the people of America and Pakistan.
