Qatar has reached out to more than 400 organisations to report human rights violations caused by the blockade against the country, Doha-resident and Human Rights Committee member Ramazan Ali Miya told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live show Haqeeqat yesterday.
The National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) registered as many as 3,446 complaints related to human rights violations since the neighbouring countries of Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain imposed illegal siege on Qatar, he said.
“These violations were committed in all sectors including education, health, business and human mobility among many others. However, Qatar is committed to ensure that the Gulf crisis has minimum impact on its people,” Ali said. He added that the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) was established 36 years ago with the aim and objective of regional security and growth.
“The current crisis is a sad state of affairs, especially if you look at the objectives behind the establishment of the GCC and the way human right violations have been committed since the beginning of the blockade.”
Haqeeqat, which aims to engage and interact with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar, is a joint venture of the Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corp Urdu Radio. The show is hosted by Saif-ur-Rehman. Log on to Qatar Urdu Radio on Facebook and ‘@QatarUrduRadio’ on Twitter for feedback and comments about the show.
