Geneva: Underlining Pakistan as “killing field” for the minorities, India on Monday shred Islamabad which has “institutionalised” enforced disappearance as a tool of “subjugation against dissent and criticism”. India also said that Pakistan remains a safe harbour for terrorists.
Using the right to reply to the statement made by Pakistan in the United Nations Human Rights Council, India highlighted that there are three outsiders for every four in Pakistan-occupied parts of Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
While civil, political and constitutional rights are non-existent in Pakistan-occupied parts of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, deliberate economic policies have also subjugated them to a life of extreme poverty.
“In contrast, full-scale training camps and launchpads of terrorists are being escalated in Pakistan-occupied parts of Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh at great expense for sustaining cross border terrorism against India,” said Indian Diplomat Pawan Badhe.
Giving light on the persecuted minorities, India said that Ahmadis remain the most persecuted community in Pakistan and hundreds of Christians are persecuted every year while the most of them are put to violent deaths in Pakistan.
“The fate of religious and ethnic minorities is well known when beheading is the only option in Pakistan in exchange for the freedom of religion. Various international organizations have termed Pakistan as the killing field for minorities,” Badhe stated.
“It should be a matter of concern for Council that Pakistan continuously misuses this august forum for malicious propaganda against my country. None of Pakistan’s vile accusations against India could stifle the voice of minorities and people under its subjugation,” Badhe added.
