    MRS. KHAN: "All individuals, Governments and humanitarian organisations always rush to the rescue of the afflicted ones whenever there is a calamity....such as an earthquake or a flood or a famine. We ask is not the imprisonment of over 90,000 Pakistani human beings in he prison camps in pitiable conditions a great man-made calamity? Can the world community be impervious to their sufferings? I have come here, we have travelled thousands of miles to convey the pain and anguish of hundreds and thousands of the families of the Pakistani prisoners of war. Now the war in Vietnam is over and the repatriation of your prisoners is already completed. We ask you, the journalists, of your prisoners is already completed. We ask you, the journalists, in the name of humanity, why over 90,000 Pakistani prisoners of war are languishing for over 15 months in Indian camps. Not only that, but they are undergoing trials and tribulations and immense troubles at the hands of Indian guards. It has also caused a tremendous pain and anguish in the hearts of their families.
