Texas: The Pakistani-American community has urged the United States to revisit its decision of issuing a 3rd category advisory for its citizens who wish to travel to Pakistan, saying the move will bar them from visiting their beloved homeland.
The advisory warns that there are serious threats of terrorism and kidnapping in Pakistan, so Americans who want to travel to Pakistan should reconsider their decision.
Regarding the 3rd category advisory from the United States, a meeting was organized at the residence of renowned physician Dr. Bilal Pracha in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Bilal Paracha, the host of the event, while raising the issue of advisory in his opening address, said that this is a very alarming situation, the government of Pakistan has to take effective measures in this regard.
