A Federal Minister who's supposed to speak for HR and highlight human rights violations is making a video of homeless people without their consent.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan would be addressing the UNGA today and his key focus will be Jammu & Kashmir. The Pakistan PM has often used international forums to raise the issue. This time the Pakistan prime minister will also be speaking on the situation in Afghanistan.

Pakistan has been accused of supporting the Taliban even as Secretary of State Antony Blinken told US lawmakers recently that the Biden administration would be reassessing its relationship with Pakistan.
