India has strongly countered Pakistan’s propaganda on J&K in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on March 15, 2017.
The Indian representative to the Council in his Right of Reply highlighted the plight of the people of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) who have become victims of sectarian conflict, terrorism and extreme economic hardship because of Pakistan's occupation and discriminatory policies. While stating that Jammu and Kashmir is part of a pluralistic and secular democracy, where an independent judiciary, an active media and a vibrant civil society guarantee freedoms, he contrasted the situation in PoK which has become a hub for the global export of terror.
India also forcefully countered Pakistan’s mischievous attempts to malign India on the situation of minorities in the country by highlighting the mistreatment of Hindus, Christians, Shias, Ahmadiyas and other minorities in Pakistan.
Minorities in India have occupied top post in all walks of life; minorities of Pakistan can’t claim even a shadow of this.
India told Pakistan to stop inciting and supporting violence and terrorism in any part of India and refrain from meddling in its internal affairs in any manner. Moreover, Pakistan must fulfil its obligation to vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
