Hoagland added that in principle nobody is ever stopped from entering the United States for their political beliefs.

Referring to his interrogation at the Toronto airport, Khan he had been raising funds from Pakistanis based in the U.S. for the past 20 years and he had never been stopped until recently, the paper said.

He termed the incident an insult to the people of Pakistan.

"All the Americans had stood together for the killer Raymond Davis but no one in Pakistan raised any voice for the country's leader," he said. (ANI)
