Pakistan ‘nursery and epicenter of terrorism’, world doesn’t need lessons from them: India at UN 

India on Friday criticised Pakistan for its poor report in offering security and safety to spiritual and ethnic minorities throughout the 45th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Addressing the 45th Session of the Human Rights Council at the UN, Senthil Kumar, First Secretary, Permanent Mission of India, mentioned the world doesn’t need lessons on human rights from a rustic which has been generally known as “nursery and epicenter of terrorism”.

“Before preaching to others Pakistan must remember that terrorism is the worst form of human rights abuse and crime against humanity. The world doesn’t need lessons on human rights from a country which has been known as nursery and epicentre of terrorism,” he mentioned, in accordance with ANI.

Kumar additionally highlighted the atrocities Balochs should undergo in Pakistan. “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 Balochistan,” he mentioned.

“Nobody knows the fate of missing 47,000 Baloch and 35,000 Pashtuns till date. Sectarian violence has claimed more than 500 Hazaras in Balochistan and more than 100,000 Hazaras have fled Pakistan,” he added.

“The Baloch have never felt safe inside Balochistan and now they do not feel safe even outside Pakistan. The case of the disappearance of Rashid Hussain in December 2018, and the killing of journalist Sajid Hussain Baloch after he went missing in March 2020, only serves to demonstrate that the Baloch human rights defenders are being targeted and eliminated even after they quit Pakistan,” he added.

The First Secretary additional identified that it was a matter “of great concern” that the inhabitants of spiritual minorities in Pakistan which was 23% in 1947 has diminished to an insignificant quantity.

“The reasons are not hard to find. Systemic discrimination and persecution through killings, violence, forced conversions, forced displacement have nearly annihilated religious minorities in Pakistan. In the Pakistan Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan has effected demographic change by reducing and driving the real Kashmiris out,” he added.
