Here’s a list of Pakistan diplomats who have been a disgrace on foreign soil for their nefarious activities.
Bengaluru: Diplomats living in other countries should be an asset to the countries they represent.
These diplomats ensure a smooth relation between the two countries.
But when it comes to diplomats of Pakistan, the lesser said the better!
It is reported that these Pakistani diplomats are involved in heinous abroad.
Here is the list:
1. Waqar Ahmad, a Pakistan Foreign Service Officer posted as first secretary in Kiev, Ukraine was removed from service on May 7 following charges of sexual harassment by a local Ukrainian employee. Southeast Asia Post added that he was charged with gross misconduct, "conduct unbecoming of an officer and gentleman and conduct prejudicial to good order and service discipline" according to a notification issued by Pakistan's Foreign Office.
2. Munir Akram, the current Pakistan Permanent Representative at the UN was accused of domestic violence in 2002 by his live-in partner.
3. Here’s another: Mohamed Mazhar Khan, an assistant visa officer at Pakistan high commission, Bangladesh, was arrested in January 2015. Why? He was alleged to have played a role in pushing FICN through the Assam and West Bengal border.
4. Farina Arshad, second secretary at the Pakistan high commission in Bangladesh was withdrawn in late 2015 after Idris Sheikh, an operative of the militant organization Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen (JMB), admitted to having links with her.
5. Amir Zubair Siddiqui, Counsellor (Visa) at the Pakistan High Commission in Sri Lanka from 2009 to 2016, was charged with conspiracy to attack nuclear installations, defence establishments, the US consulate in Chennai, the Israeli Consulate in Bengaluru and other Indian ports.
6. Col. Shaharyar Butt, Pakistan defence attache and ISI officer in Sri Lanka was repatriated. Why? He had constant run-ins (2014) with his high commissioner, who did not take his throwing of his ISI clout too kindly.
7. Mohammed Arshad Cheema, First Secretary, Pakistan Embassy in Nepal, was arrested on April 2001 by Kathmandu police with 16 kg of RDX.
Interestingly, as the website adds, he is also believed to have been linked with the December 1999 hijacking of the Indian Airlines flight IC 814. He was one of the two Pakistani officials, who had met the hijackers at Tribhuvan airport shortly before IC 814 took off for Delhi on December 24, 1999.
