India has slammed Pakistan for using UN platforms for spreading anti-India rhetoric.
During the High-Level Forum on the Culture of Peace on Thursday, India called the Pakistani attempt “unfortunate” and said, “We have witnessed another attempt by the delegation of Pakistan to exploit a UN platform for hate speech against India”
This happens at a time when Pakistan continues to foment a ‘culture of violence’ at home and across its borders. “Pakistan’s deplorable human rights records and discriminatory treatment of religious and ethnic minorities is a cause of persistent concern for the international community. Blasphemy laws are used against religious minorities such as Hindus, Christians, and Sikhs, to violate their human rights and dignity. Women and girls remain particularly vulnerable as they are abducted, raped, forcefully converted and married to their violators,” the statement added.
