Geneva [Switzerland], Sept 16 (ANI): The World Uyghur Congress on Monday came down heavily on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan over his "double standards" and turning a blind eye towards the issue concerning the persecution of Uighur Muslims in China, saying it is a matter of shame that Islamabad was silent and supporting Beijing's policy on the minority community.

"A couple of months ago, international journalists asked him about this (Uighur issue) several times, but he said that he doesn't know and is not aware of it. Pakistan Prime Minister very well knows what the Chinese government is doing to Uighur Muslims but he doesn't want to talk on this," the organisation's president Dolkun Isa told ANI here.

"Pakistan is one of the biggest violators of human rights and China is hiding the reality internationally," he said.
