‘Underage girls are converted to Islam abetted by…’: India slams Pakistan at UNHRC
Underage girls from the community are converted to Islam abetted by a predatory state and an apathetic judiciary: India to Pakistan
In the Right o Reply in response to the statement delivered by Pakistan at Human Rights Council, United Nations, India stated, "underage girls from the community are converted to Islam abetted by a predatory state and an apathetic judiciary. Hindu and Sikh communities face similar issues of frequent attack on their places of worship and forced conversion of their underage girls."
"In last decade, Pakistan’s own Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances has received 8,463 complaints. The Baloch people have borne the brunt of this cruel policy. Students, doctors, engineers, teachers and community leaders are regularly disappeared by the State". India mentioned highlighting the Pakistan governance's ‘blasphemy laws’.
"Equally worse is the treatment of the Christian community. It is frequently targeted through draconian blasphemy laws. State institutions officially reserve ‘sanitation’ jobs for Christians." India added in their response to the statement delivered by Pak at HRC, United Nations.
The reply from India comes after Pakistan's foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar, while addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council, said urged states to be consistent in their support for the protection of Kashmiris' rights. "Pakistan reiterated strong condemnation for the recent intentional burning of the Holy Quran in three countries. International financial institutions needed to undertake special measures to support developing countries in protecting basic rights to food, livelihood, and a decent living," she stated.
