His Excellency Ambassador, Mr. Jalil Abbas Jilani

It has come to our attention that Kareem Khan, a drone strike victim, has been kidnapped from his home by Pakistani authorities, and no one has been told why or how long he will be held.

It is outrageous that Khan is being harassed after the terrible ordeal he went through losing his brother and son to a US drone strike in 2009. He is a crucial witness to the dangers of the CIA's covert drone program, and has simply sought justice for the death of his son and brother through peaceful, legal routes. We urge the Government of Pakistan to release him immediately.

Signed,

How this will help

In 2009 Kareem Khan was devastated by the loss of his son and brother in a US drone strike. He has since sued the Pakistani government for its failure to investigate the deadly strike.

Just days...

In 2009 Kareem Khan was devastated by the loss of his son and brother in a US drone strike. He has since sued the Pakistani government for its failure to investigate the deadly strike.

Just days before he was scheduled to travel to Europe to give evidence to parliamentarians, he was kidnapped from his home by 15-20 men in Pakistani police uniforms and plain clothes. 

The men did not disclose their identities or the reason he was taken away. Mr. Khan's wife, young children, and neighbor were present at the time. Despite numerous inquiries to the Pakistani police, Mr. Khan's family has yet to be able to locate Mr. Khan or discover why he was detained.

Sign this petition to demand that the Pakistani government release Kareem Khan immediately!

We will deliver the petition to the Pakistani embassy in DC.
