Attacks on Hindu funeral procession, church portray plight of minorities in Pakistan: India at UNHRC [Video]

Attacks on Hindu funeral procession, church portray plight of minorities in Pakistan: India at UNHRC

Vimarsh Aryan, First Secretary, India's permanent mission to United Nation's Office at Geneva (UNOG) exercised India's Right of Reply to Pakistan at 43rd Session of UNHRC in Geneva. Aryan said, "It's unfortunate, however, not unexpected from the deep state of Pakistan which is continuing incessant abuse of its membership of this August Council for propagating an illegal, immoral and inhuman territorial ambition. We are witnessing in Pakistan unabated torture, maiming and systematic persecution of religious minorities. The attacks on a Hindu funeral procession and a Christian church, a couple of days ago in Sindh and Punjab provinces portray the horrific plight of various minorities in Pakistan." He further said, "This epicenter of global terrorism (Pakistan) very irresponsibly harps on self-determination of the already democratic Jammu and Kashmir. It very conveniently ignores that VDPA explicitly states that the principle of self-determination must not be used as a garb to promote activities detrimental to the territorial integrity and political unity of member states in violation of the UN Charter."

India exercises its right of reply in response to statement by Pakistan at UNHRC

India exercised its right of reply in response to statement made by Pakistan, at 43rd session of UN Human Rights Council. Senthil Kumar, First Secretary at Permanent Mission of India, Geneva said that systematic misuse of blasphemy in Pak has terrorized minorities in Pakistan. "It's unfortunate that Pakistan continues to maintain its track record of misuse of the Human Rights Council and its mechanism. It's a matter of serious concern that Pakistan being the only country in South Asia of affecting a state-sponsored genocide would have the audacity to accuse others of it. It's dangerous that Pakistan now attempts to destabilize the well-established mandate of the Council and its mechanisms for serving its narrow political agenda against India," said Senthil Kumar. "Attention of the Council is drawn to the culture of impunity and crimes against humanity that the regimes and its puppets enjoy in Pakistan. It's not surprising that Pakistan does not criminalize enforced disappearances. About 2500 people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa continue to be 'missing' for their political, religious affiliations or defence of human rights. Enforced disappearances, state violence and forced mass displacements, harassment, extrajudicial killings, army operations, torture, kill-and-dumps, torture camps, detention centres, military camps are regular features in Baluchistan. Nobody knows the fate of missing 47,000 Baloch and 35,000 Pashtuns till date. Sectarian violence has claimed more than 500 Hazaras in Baluchistan and more than 100,000 Hazaras have fled Pakistan," he further added.
