Pakistan PM Frisked At Airport As Visit Was Private

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

A furious Pakistani media slammed Abbasi for not lodging any protest with the USA authorities against the treatment meted out to him and letting the people of country down.

Malala's flight- Emirates' EK-614 - landed at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Rawalpindi at 1:41 AM, reported Geo TV.

A video that has gone viral on social media shows a casually-dressed Abbasi being frisked at the John F. Kennedy Airport in NY earlier this week. In the video, the Prime Minister can be seen walking out of the security check, as any ordinary passenger may do such. Moments later, he picks up his coat and bag and walks away.

As per the Geo news reports, the Pak PM was in the U.S. last week on a private visit and also to meet his sister. Another reason for his visit was to meet his sister residing there.

However, according to Geo News, Abbasi is known for "adhering to simplicity in his personal life" and that's the reason why he "chose" to follow the standard security procedures in place for all passengers during his visit to the USA on Saturday.

If the Steelers draft BJ Hill, he will compete with Dan McCullers for the sixth defensive lineman role on the defense. They could even shock the world and take a defensive back or running back in the first round.

Abbasi also met with Vice President Mike Pence during his US visit. United States of America had in the most recent months demanded the removal of terrorism from its soil completely. He is the prime minister... he has a diplomatic passport...there is no such thing as a private visit.

Netizens too reacted on the issue over social media.

"The options under consideration include revoking Pakistan's status as a major non-NATO ally, permanently cutting off the USA military aid that was suspended two months ago, and even imposing visa bans or other sanctions on individuals in the Pakistani government deemed responsible for providing support to the militants", Foreign Policy reported. And this time there was restriction for the Prime Minister himself. However, the present rulers of the country who want to prolong their rule for their personal gains have been facing embarrassing situation on foreign lands.

Participating in the Trends Official debate, General Moinuddin Haider, a former army officer said that Pakistan government should also put USA officials through similar body search at their airports. In reply, Pakistani officials have noted that the USA shouldn't use Pakistan as a scapegoat for its yet-unfinished 17-year War in Afghanistan. And it takes help from militants in bordering Pakistan.

In October 2012, the education activist was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for actively supporting girls' right to education in Mingora, Swat Valley in northern Pakistan. That's the strong reason United States is anxious about.
