Would you betray your country in order to help capture a fugitive?
In Pakistan a doctor who collaborated with the CIA by using secret DNA testing on his own people to trace Bin Laden's blood line was found guilty of treason and sentenced to 33 years in prison. On one hand it helped to find Bin Laden but on the other hand it violated Pakistani citizen rights as well as state laws. Would you have done the same?
Doctor has done a noble duty in supplying the DNA report to trace Bin Laden’s blood for the security and protection of human beings living any where in the world but again he has violated Pakistani citizen right. He was rightly found guilty of treason. Now the decision lies with the integrity of the person whether you want to be a law abiding citizen for the protection of a fugitive or you want to sacrifice yourself for the protection of human beings or humanity. I would prefer the later. Of course I would fight to the last. I will not hesitate to appeal the international court for justice against 33 years imprisonment.
"what you don't know wont hurt" is a term I'm familiar with since my youth. I found out a long time ago that intelligence agencies use medical info to track cultures and people all around the world. Because it came to light in this case makes no dif.
The Doctor has done an incredible service for the World at large and for his own country and for that he is punished. Pakistan will bear the consequences of their, foolishness for a very long time.
The only thing the Doctor did wrong was , through his actions, show the world the magnitude of the incompetence of the political and military leaders of Pakistan. Or in other words.........he embarrassed them and for that ....33 years in prison. How about we place the military and political leaders of Pakistan on trial for their complicity in this affair and allow the Doctor to sit in judgement over them. Sounds fair to me!
Even were it a breach of local laws, I'm having difficulty understanding how the man's action can be called treasonous. In providing information to the US, did he join Pakistan's enemies to fight against his own country? Is that what is being said, that Pakistan considers itself to be at war with the United States and allied with Al Queada? After all, treason is siding with an enemy against your own people, yet Pakistan and the US are supposed to be allies if not always comfortable ones, and Pakistan is supposed to be combating Al Queada rather than working with it. Someone, please, explain this to me.
I wouldn't want to violate people's rights in order to catch a criminal, but betraying a country in order to catch a dangerous fugitive would be fine.
In a legitimate government this doctor would have been hailed as a hero to the people. The government and military in Pakistan prove repeatedly how questionable their loyalties are in curtailing the activities of known terrorists.

Would you betray a friend before betraying your country?“If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend,” EM Forster (author of Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy), “I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.
