Eleven Democrats in the House of Representatives are calling on the State Department to conduct a probe into human rights abuses in Pakistan .

The letter expresses “deep concern about the ongoing human rights violations in Pakistan ,” which has been in a state of political crisis since the military-engineered removal of former Prime Minister Imran Khan last year .

The letter from Congress targets this lifeline directly, warning that if some semblance of normalcy is not returned to Pakistani politics, the military may be in danger of losing its privileged relationship with the U.S. and the largesse that come along with it.

“We further request that future security assistance be withheld until Pakistan has moved decisively toward the restoration of Constitutional order, including by holding free and fair elections in which all parties are able to participate freely”.
