In Pakistan it is a matter of grave concern that retrogressive forces of extremism are allowed to perpetuate a reign of terror over the tribal population, especially women in public service. Despite these elements being identifiable, the state authorities have completely failed to enforce the rule of law. Inaction of the state in the face of murder and open threats against people has resulted in complete impunity for those who commit acts of terrorism with dire consequences for the victims. We condemn acts of extremist elements that obstruct the work of development or promotion and protection of human rights in any part of the country. We demand from state authorities who have so far stayed silent, to immediately issue a strong condemnation of the killing of Farida Afridi; KPK governor and political agent of FATA take full responsibility for Farida’s murder and announce effective measures for protection of human rights defenders, especially women; authorities affirm commitment to provide a safe environment for all those engaged in promotion of human rights/development work; and above all, announce measures for routing out criminals responsible for the terrorization of NGOs
