Geneva, March 17, 2017: India asked Pakistan to halt its “compulsive hostility” towards it during UN human rights council session. Employing its right to reply India further induced Pakistan to fulfill its obligation to depart from the illegal seizure of PoK. The rising concern is disturbing now as Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir region has become the hub of global terror.

During the session, one of the officials was quoted saying “We ask Pakistan to stop inciting and supporting violence and terrorism in any part of India and refrain from meddling in our internal affairs in any manner”. Another official was noted stressing on the violation of Human Rights by the illicit act of terrorism and seizing the territories of J&K forcibly by Pakistan. Pakistan has one more time chosen to misuse the council by passing erroneous references about internal matters concerning with Jammu and Kashmir, the diplomat stated.The Indian side also declares that India does not accept any claims by Pakistan to disparage the democratic choice that has consecutively for 6 decades been employed by people of J&K since the time of independence.


The Indian side also declares that India does not accept any claims by Pakistan to disparage the democratic choice that has consecutively for 6 decades been employed by people of J&K since the time of independence. “It is unfortunate that in recent times the people of PoK have become victims of sectarian conflict, terrorism, and extreme economic hardship because of Pakistan’s occupation and discrimination policies”, said the Indian side.

Pakistan has alienated its own people through continued violation of Hindus, Christians, Shias, Ahmadiyas and other minorities.

“In this council, Pakistan has referred to situation of minorities in India. Minorities in India have been Prime Ministers, Presidents, Vice-Presidents, senior Cabinet Ministers, senior civil servants, cricket team captains, Bollywood superstars – can the minorities of Pakistan claim even a shadow of this? All they have are blasphemy laws and relentless abuse and violation of their human rights”, the Indian side said.

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
