China tries raising Kashmir in UNSC, gets no support

IndiaTimes Thursday, 6 August 2020
On the first anniversary of India’s revocation of the special status of J&K, China tried to initiate a discussion in the UN Security Council (UNSC) on the issue, but failed to find support from the international community. It was Pakistan which had sent a request in the form of a letter for the discussion. Representatives of the US and other countries though said it was not the right place for this bilateral issue.

Watch: PM Modi's programme at UN General Assembly amid Covid

India's Permanent Representative to United Nations TS Tirumurti spoke on the upcoming General Assembly session. Tirumurti said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address will be the highlight of India's participation. PM Modi will participate in two debates in the high-level segments beginning from September 21. "This time UN General Assembly will be historic and in more than one way. India's highlight will be participation of PM Modi in two debates. First is a general debate where he will deliver our national statement. Other is the high-level plenary meeting to commemorate UN's 75th anniversary. PM's address will certainly be the highlight of our participation in UNGA," Tirumurti said. He added. "We are entering UN Security Council at a very interesting if not critical juncture. We will be entering Security Council during the 75th year of UN. The world is different from the one that was when we were last in council. We have set forth our priorities which include peace & security related issues."

Watch: Pashtuns protest against Pakistan Army outside UNHRC office in Geneva

Supporters of Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) Europe held protest against Pakistan. Pashtuns protested to condemn gross human rights violations in Pakistan. The protest was organised outside UNHRC headquarters in Geneva. Pashtuns were joined by Sindhis, Baloch and activists from PoK. Protesters jointly raised voice against atrocities by Pakistan Army and spy agencies. Exiled PoK leader, Sardar Shaukat Ali Kashmir said, "Democratic forces in Pakistan are victims of state run forces. They are committing enforced disappearances and killings of Pashtuns and others. The situation in PoK and Gilgit Baltistan is very grim, people are put behind the bars for more than 50 years." Human rights activist, Baseer Naveed said, "Sindhis have been struggling for the past many decades. To marginalise Sindhis, people from other parts of Pakistan are settling in Sindh. The trend of enforced disappearances started from Sindh. It has now extended to Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa." Pashtuns have been holding massive protests in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Protests come as abduction and killing incidents are on the rise in the province.

Pashtuns protest outside UNHRC office in Geneva against Pakistan Army

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) Europe organised a protest in front of UNHRC headquarters in Geneva to condemn gross human rights violations in Pakistan. The Pashtuns were joined by Sindhis, Baloch and activists from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) who jointly raised a voice against atrocities committed by Pakistan Army and spy agencies, the ISI and Military Intelligence. Sardar Shaukat Ali Kashmir, exiled PoK leader, said in his address, "The democratic forces in Pakistan are victims of state run forces, who are committing enforced disappearances, killings of the Pashtuns, Baloch, Sindhis and other persecuted people." "The situation in PoK and Gilgit Baltistan is very grim as people are put behind bars for more than 50 years", said Shaukat. Baseer Naveed, a Sindhi human rights activist, said, "Sindhis have been struggling for the past many decades. With an intention to marginalise Sindhis, people from other parts of Pakistan are being settled in Sindh." "Trend of enforced disappearances started from Sindh and now extended to Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. This is the most heinous crime as law does not allow enforcement agencies to keep a person for over 24 hours", said Naveed. Pashtuns are holding massive protests in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as incidents of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings are on the rise in the province.
