India has targeted Pakistan at the United Nations (UN), saying it has promoted a “culture of violence” in its country and across the border, and its “regrettable” record on human rights and discriminatory treatment of religious minorities remains a matter of “constant concern” for the global community.
“Unfortunately, we saw another attempt by the Pakistan delegation to use the UN forum to deliver hate speech against India,” Paulomi Tripathi, counsellor of India’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, said at an event on “Culture of Peace” at the UN General Assembly on Thursday.
“This is happening at a time when Pakistan is promoting a culture of violence in our country and across the border,” Tripathi said, strongly condemning Pakistan’s ambassador to the United Nations Munir Akram’s remarks about Jammu and Kashmir, Babri Masjid demolition and construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. The subject remains.””
“The blasphemy law is used for violation of their human rights against religious minorities like Hindus, Christians and Sikhs,” he said, adding that women and girls in Pakistan are particularly poor because they are kidnapped, raped and forcibly married to rapists by conversion. Tripathi said that the situation has worsened due to the global epidemic.
