United Nations, March 2: Terrorism is the grossest violation of human rights and for the last two decades, the most wanted terrorists of the world have found succour and sustenance in Pakistan, India said at the UN Human Rights Council (HRC).India's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Ajit Kumar has said that Pakistan created terror outfits against India are now devouring its own creator. He said this while addressing 34th Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The fundamental reason for disturbances in parts of Jammu & Kashmir is cross-border terrorism aided and abetted by Pakistan. For many years now, Pakistan carried out an intense campaign to destabilize the situation in the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir by promoting infiltration and cross-border terrorism; inciting, promoting and glorifying violence and unrest in the Indian State; and raking up the matter through baseless allegations, said Kumar.
Asserting that terrorism is the grossest violation of human rights, he said, Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India and the situation there is our internal matter. The Central Government and democratically elected State Government have led a system-wide effort last year to restore normalcy in the State in the wake of Pakistan-supported violent unrest.
The robust and mature Indian democracy proved once again that it has sufficiently strong and adequate mechanisms to redress any internal difficulties even if they are incited from outside. Prime Minister of India had announced a US$ 12 billion package which is being fast tracked. Normalcy has returned as 99% of the students of Jammu & Kashmir had taken their high school examinations and schools have reopened, he added.
Indian Representative said that Pakistan’s unwarranted references to UN Security Council resolutions are grossly misleading as Pakistan was required to vacate the parts of the State of Jammu and Kashmir under its illegal and forced occupation.
