Exercising the right of reply to the statements made by Pakistan at the 45ths session of Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva, the First Secretary at India’s Permanent Mission, Pawan Badhe said, “It has become habitual for Pakistan to malign my country with false and fabricated narratives for its self-serving malicious purposes. Neither India nor others deserve this unsolicited lecture on human rights from a country that has consistently persecuted its ethnic and religious minorities, is an epicenter of terrorism, has the distinction of providing pensions to individuals on the UN Sanctions list, and has a Prime Minister who proudly admits training tens of thousands of terrorists to fight in Jammu and Kashmir.”
Exposing Pakistan for abusing various HRC mechanisms and platforms for raising issues, which relate to the internal affairs of India, The Indian statement said that it is an attempt to “distract the attention of the international community from serious human rights violations committed by it against its own people, including in Indian territories occupied by it”.
India also rejected the reference made by the Organisation of Islamic Council (OIC) to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir which is an integral part of India. “The OIC has no locus standi to comment on internal affairs of India. The OIC has allowed itself to be misused by Pakistan to subverse its own Agenda. It’s for the members of the OIC to decide if it is in their interests to allow Pakistan to do so,” said the Indian representative.
Pakistan is under severe pressure from international organization to act upon the menace of money laundering to stop terror financing. “Its not surprising that other relevant multilateral institutions have been raising serious concerns on its failure to stop terror financing and lack of effective actions against all terror entities in Pakistan,” said the Indian statement.
