At the United Nations, Pakistan has urged Human Rights Council not to remain a passive bystander as India intensifies the suppression of fundamental rights and freedoms of the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN office in Geneva, Ambassador Khalil Hashmi, reiterated Pakistan’s call on the Council members to force India to rescind its unlawful actions, halt the illegal demographic changes, put an end to human rights abuses, allow access to independent observers and urge the Office of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to issue an updated assessment on Kashmir.
The Pakistani envoy also delivered a statement to the Council on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
The OIC urged India to implement the applicable UN Security Council resolutions as well as recommendations addressed to it in OHCHR’s two Kashmir reports.
