Dozens of British Members of Parliament (MPs) have asked UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson the reason behind adding Pakistan and Bangladesh to the “red list”.
The restrictions were announced last week by the British government, saying that the measures were taken after a surge of coronavirus cases in Pakistan.
However, many questioned the logic behind the move as many countries with higher infections rates were not included in the list.
Every country has a right to take decisions to safeguard the health of their citizens. However, the recent decision by UK govt to add some countries including Pakistan on the red list raises a legitimate question whether choice of countries is based on science or foreign policy
