Geneva, September 10: Reiterating its stand in United Nations Human Rights Council session, India once again made it loud and clear stating, “The decision to revoke Article 370 was taken by our Parliament. These were sovereign decisions which is entirely India’s internal matter.” It is known to all that Pakistan has always cried a victim card while they are actually perpetrators. Hitting out at Pakistan, India said that the entire world is aware that this false narrative comes from the epicentre of terrorism.
Speaking on India’s behalf, MEA's Vijay Thakur Singh said, “The decision to scrap put Article 370 was taken by our Parliament. These were sovereign decisions which is entirely India’s internal matter. Basic services are being eased gradually in Kashmir. My government is taking affirmative action by adopting progressive policies to promote socio-economic equality and justice.” Adding further Singh said, “As a result of recent legislative measures, progressive policies will now be fully applicable to our citizens in Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. These will end gender discrimination, better protect juvenile rights and make applicable rights to education, information, and work.”
Slamming Pakistan, India asserted, “The world, in particular India, has suffered greatly on account of State-sponsored terrorism. It is time to collectively take decisive and firm action against terror groups who threaten fundamental right to life. We must speak out. Silence alone emboldens terrorists.”
India also hit out at Pakistan, accusing it of a running commentary with offensive rhetoric of false allegations and concocted charges against New Delhi. Speaking on the NRC exercise in Assam, MEA's Vijay Singh Thakur told UNHRC, “NRC is a statutory, transparent, and a non-discriminatory legal process, mandated and monitored by Supreme Court of India. Any decision that is taken during its implementation will comply with the Indian laws will be consistent with India’s democratic traditions.”
Speaking about human rights, India said that it believes in constructive approach to shape the human rights discourse. Slyly hinting at Pakistan, India voiced saying that UN should call out at those who are misusing the platform for malicious political agendas under the grab human rights.
