Pakistani authorities have re-arrested four men convicted of the 2002 murder of U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl, one day after a lower court ruled to overturn their convictions.

Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was investigating Islamist militants in Karachi after the 9/11 attacks when we was kidnapped in January 2002, and later beheaded.

On Thursday (April 2), the High Court in Sindh acquitted the four accused, including British militant Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who was originally sentenced to death for masterminding Pearl's murder.

But today (April 3), the Sindh government issued the order to arrest and detain the four before they were released from prison -- to be detained for three months.

The re-arrest of the men gives the Pakistani government time to put together a legal appeal against their acquittal.

Extrajudicial killings in PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan not acceptable: Activist at UNHRC

National Equality Party JKGBL, Chairman Sajjad Raja while speaking at UNHRC's 44th session on July 09 said that the extrajudicial killings taking place in Pakistan occupied so called 'Azad' Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are not acceptable. He said, "The citizens of Azad Kashmir stand before you today, seeking intervention on the repression and extra judicial killings of our people - 'AZAD' means 'free', but this is a false label that has been attached to our people to hide the truth in a disgusting way. In fact, any dissent towards Pakistan is mercilessly crushed through lent officers, army atrocities and the ISI. Today even the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir is agitating against the Pakistani bullying for forcing constitutional changes through the 14th amendment in Act 74 down our throats in the name of Islam and brotherhood."

Attacks on Hindu funeral procession, church portray plight of minorities in Pakistan: India at UNHRC

Vimarsh Aryan, First Secretary, India's permanent mission to United Nation's Office at Geneva (UNOG) exercised India's Right of Reply to Pakistan at 43rd Session of UNHRC in Geneva. Aryan said, "It's unfortunate, however, not unexpected from the deep state of Pakistan which is continuing incessant abuse of its membership of this August Council for propagating an illegal, immoral and inhuman territorial ambition. We are witnessing in Pakistan unabated torture, maiming and systematic persecution of religious minorities. The attacks on a Hindu funeral procession and a Christian church, a couple of days ago in Sindh and Punjab provinces portray the horrific plight of various minorities in Pakistan." He further said, "This epicenter of global terrorism (Pakistan) very irresponsibly harps on self-determination of the already democratic Jammu and Kashmir. It very conveniently ignores that VDPA explicitly states that the principle of self-determination must not be used as a garb to promote activities detrimental to the territorial integrity and political unity of member states in violation of the UN Charter."

Allama Iqbal didn't present ideology of Pakistan, but of Greater Punjab: Altaf Hussain

Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain has said that poet Allama Iqbal did not present the ideology of Pakistan but of Greater Punjab for the protection of the interest of West Punjab. He said in his latest address to the workers and the public through social media. The address was telecast live. He said that Allama Iqbal was on the payroll of the British Empire and worked for them. Hussain stated that Allama Iqbal had said he wanted to see Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sindh and Balochistan amalgamated into a single state. Hussain said that Allama Iqbal did not present the idea of Pakistan but of greater Punjab, but he was presented as an ideologue of Pakistan. The MQM leader alleged that governments and the establishment of Pakistan distorted history. "The new generation of Pakistan is taught that Allama Iqbal was a hero who dreamed for Pakistan," he said. Hussain said that the Muslims of undivided India was created in the name of Islam and Pakistan. He said that those who were "agents" of British Empire and against the creation of Pakistan were presented as the "hero" of Pakistan, whereas those who sacrificed for Pakistan were declared "traitors". Hussain said that Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Baltistan have become colonies of Punjab through the military power and asserted that Pakistan has become "Punjabistan". He said Mohajirs, Sindhis, Baloch, Pashtuns and people of Gilgit Baltistan want freedom from Pakistan. The MQM chief strongly condemned the atrocities and human rights violations in Pakistan by the state forces.
