On March 3, India criticised Pakistan in front of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for its treatment of minorities’ religious freedom.
India’s ambassador, Seema Pujani, criticised her Pakistani counterpart, Hina Rabbani Khar, saying, “Today, no religious minority can live or practise its religion in Pakistan freely.” The state still targets the Ahmadiyya group for upholding their religious beliefs.
“Pakistan’s ambassador has once again chosen to misuse this prestigious platform for its destructive propaganda against India,” Ms. Pujani remarked in response to her Pakistani opponent Hina Rabbani Khar’s statement.
The Indian delegate addressed the subject of forcible disappearances as well.
“In the past ten years, 8,463 complaints have been filed with Pakistan’s own panel of inquiry into enforced disappearances.” This terrible policy has primarily affected the Baloch people. According to Ms. Pujani, the state frequently abducts students, medical professionals, engineers, teachers, and members of the local government.
The Indian ambassador further criticised Pakistan for aiding terrorism, stating that Pakistan’s “intelligence services have nourished and protected Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed for years.”
“When Pakistan is not only focused on repressing its own population, it actively contributes its energies to support, harbour, and enable foreign terrorists.” It holds the singular distinction of harbouring the greatest number of individuals and terrorist organisations that have received UNSC designations. Let me remind you that Osama bin Laden resided close to the top military academy in Pakistan. For years, its security services have fostered and protected Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azar.
“These are only a few of the famous names from Pakistan’s long history of aiding terrorism. Many thousands of civilians have died as a result of Pakistan’s actions throughout the world. As its citizens fight for their lives, livelihoods, and freedom, Pakistan’s fixation with India is a warning sign, she continued.
