India slams Pakistan for its duplicity on Kashmir & supporting terrorism
New Delhi/Geneva (Switzerland), Mar 13 (HS): India has slammed Pakistan for its duplicity on Kashmir and supporting terrorism at the 40th Session of UN Human Rights Council session at Geneva. During the session, Kashmiri political activists and intellectuals have strongly criticized Pakistan for its duplicity on Kashmir. Junaid Qureshi, a Kashmiri and director of European Foundation of South Asian Studies (EFSAS) slammed Pakistan for becoming an invader to a broker. However, India also raised the issue of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, Pulwama terror attack and the need to take action against Masood Azhar and his terror outfit JeM that took responsibility for the attack. Refuting the charges made by Pakistan about “human rights violations” in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian diplomat Mini Devi Kumam enumerated the “suffering” of the people of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) who are victims of “sectarian” conflict, systemic “army persecution”, “violence”, “terrorism”, extreme economic hardships, “discriminatory” policies and denial of even basic rights. Pakistan is known to the international community for harbouring safe havens for terrorists. It’s continued support to cross-border terrorism is the main challenge to protecting the human rights of citizens in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, she added. Issue of ban on Masood Azhar likely to be taken up at UNSC today United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is likely to take up the issue of ban on Jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar. India and other countries including France and the US have been pressing for a resolution to declare Pakistan-based JeM chief as a global terrorist. After the Pulwama terror attack, owned by JeM, the US, the UK and France moved a proposal at the UNSC to designate Masood as a global terrorist. China, which has blocked three times such moves by India and other members of the UNSC, is yet to announce its stand on the issue. It may be recalled that after the Pulwama terror attack Security Council President Anatolio Ndong Mba had said in a statement that the members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security. The members of the Security Council underlined the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Government of India and all other relevant authorities in this regard. The members of the Security Council reiterated that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed. They reaffirmed the need for all States to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.
