Addressed to US President Joe Biden
I am writing to draw your immediate attention to a deeply concerning situation involving a U.S. citizen in Pakistan. Dr. Sabohi Inam, a retired physician and microbiologist, is presently enduring wrongful detention by Pakistani authorities.
A dedicated American citizen and esteemed professional in her field, Dr. Inam was in Pakistan exercising her democratic right to participate in peaceful political protests, a right enshrined in international human rights law. Unfortunately, she has fallen victim to arbitrary arrest and harassment, a clear violation of her rights.
This incident underscores the growing concerns over freedom of speech and expression in Pakistan, and it is imperative that the U.S. administration makes a concerted effort to ensure the safety and well-being of its citizens abroad.
Dr. Inam’s case is more than just an infringement of an individual’s rights; it is emblematic of the larger issue at hand. A democratic society should safeguard its citizens’ rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, not suppress them.
We urge your administration to use its diplomatic influence to secure Dr. Inam’s immediate release and safe return to the United States. As the leader of the free world, we rely on your commitment to upholding the fundamental human rights of all American citizens, at home and abroad.
Your swift action in this matter is greatly appreciated.
