The Sept. 11 incident and the ensuing US-led war on terrorism have serious implications for developing countries across Asia. The countries sharing borders with Afghanistan, however, have more at stake. In order to understand better the ramifications of a war in Afghanistan and its effect on the rest of the region, SAP-Canada invited I A Rehman, Director Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, for a cross Canada tour (Oct 25-Nov 3, 2001). A former journalist and renowned human rights activist, Mr Rehman addressed a number of audiences across Canada. Sharing his view of the situation arising out of the war in Afghanistan, he discussed at length the challenges faced by governments and people in the region (see Appendix A for complete biography).
