- Pakistan attacks India at UN rights council in Geneva
- India says minorities here are much better off than in Pak
- Pak 'factory of terrorism', should vacate PoK immediately: India
"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," Indian Representative Nabanita Chakrabarti said.
Once again Pakistan's delegation chose to "misuse" the council to make "fallacious references" about internal matters pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir, the diplomat said. "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," she said.
India said that Pakistan's continued support for terror groups operating in Jammu and Kashmir was "the main challenge to protecting the human rights of our citizens in the State". "We also demand that Pakistan must fulfil its obligation to vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)," Ms Chakrabarti said.
