Voicing its views on the issue of Balochistan before UN for the first time, India on Wednesday accused Pakistan of indulging in widespread human rights violations across the country including Balochistan. “Pakistan has been characterised by authoritarianism, absence of democratic norms and widespread human rights violations across the country including Balochistan,” said India in response to a statement made by Pakistan at 33rd session of United Nation Human Right Commissions. Indian advised Pakistan to focus further on improving human rights situation within its country and PoK. “It will be in the fitness of things if Pak focuses its energies on improving human rights situation within Pak & PoK,” said India’s permanent representative Ajit Kumar at the crucial meeting. While speaking on the current crisis in the valley, Kumar said that its country’s internal matter as Kashmir is an integral part of India.
In a scathing attack on Pakistan, India said that the main reason for disturbances in Kashmir is the cross-border terrorism sponsored by Pakistan that stems from its territorial ambitions. Attacking Pakistan, India said that the country’s dismal track record is well known and many countries have repeatedly called upon Pakistan to end cross-border infiltration.
