Watch: General Bajwa’s Paris Visit Gone Wrong As Ex-Pakistan Army Chief Abused, Heckled In France

Former Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif faced verbal abuse and heckling during his visit to Paris, France, where he had gone to attend a conference on security issues in the Middle East and South Asia. The incident occurred when Sharif was leaving a building after attending the conference, and a group of protesters began shouting slogans against him and Pakistan’s military establishment. The protesters accused Sharif of human rights violations and war crimes in Pakistan’s Balochistan province, where the military has been accused of carrying out extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances. Sharif’s visit to France was seen as a diplomatic failure for Pakistan, as it highlighted the country’s poor human rights record and lack of accountability for military officials accused of abuses.
