US drone attacks in Pak insane, immoral: Imran
London: American drone strikes targeting al Qaeda and Taliban elements in Pakistan`s lawless tribal belt are "insane" and "immoral", says Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan.
Khan, leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party, told `The Times` that he would also like Britain to clarify its policy on drones.
He urged the public to engage in a debate on what he claimed was a form of extra-judicial killing that continues unchallenged despite outrage by human rights groups and the people who live in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas that stretch along Pakistan`s border with Afghanistan.
He said: "Of drones I think two words it`s immoral and it`s insane. Immoral because you cannot justify eliminating suspects, and insane because it`s counterproductive.
"All it does is it turns more people against the US, hatred grow and the beneficiaries of this insanity are the militants."
Khan added: "This is a war crime and they never give the names of the people killed. It is too criminal to justify these acts, which are a violation of all humanitarian laws."
