India Slams Pakistan, Turkey And OIC In UNHRC Meet In Geneva
The three had earlier made remarks on India’s internal affairs.
India has slammed Pakistan, Turkey and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the 45th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for their remarks on India’s internal affairs. Pawan Badhe, the First Secretary at the Permanent Mission of India to the UN in Geneva, said that India didn’t need an “unsolicited lecture on human rights from a country that has consistently persecuted its ethnic and religious minorities.” Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier raised the issue of human rights violations in Kashmir.
About Turkey, Badhe said and that New Delhi could “only advise Turkey to refrain from commenting on the internal affairs of India and develop a better understanding of the democratic practices.” And as for the OIC, which is referred to sometimes as the voice of the Muslim world, he said, it has “no locus standi to comment on internal affairs of India”. The group, he added, has “allowed itself to be misused by Pakistan to subvert its own agenda.”
