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 Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has blamed quack doctors practicing without training and professional certification for an alarming rise in the number of HIV positive patients in the country, the media reported on Wednesday.

The doctors associated with the PMA said that the quacks, especially fake dentists, spread the virus by using instruments that were not sterilized, adding that despite free-of-cost availability of life-saving antiretroviral drugs at government hospitals, mortality ratio among patients carrying the virus was also increasing.

An alarming surge in HIV cases has been witnessed in five districts of Pakistan’s Punjab province, with 70 to 90 cases being reported monthly at the main government health facility in Faisalabad city, Dawn News reported.

Earlier this month, an international team of experts from the World Health Organization kicked off an investigation into the sudden HIV outbreak in Pakistan’s Sindh province after over 700 people were diagnosed with the virus in a matter of weeks, most of them were children.

Following the outbreak, authorities launched a crackdown on unqualified doctors as well as illegal blood banks and laboratories said to be involved in spreading the disease. At least 17 quack doctors were arrested and more than 70 clinics in Larkana district were shut down, according to Xinhua news agency.

According to the PMA, over 600,000 quacks are currently practicing in the country with more than 80,000 based in Punjab province alone.
