In a major embarrassment to the terrorist state of Pakistan, on Thursday, the United States, United Kingdom and Canada slammed Pakistan and China for discrimination against religious minorities at a United Nations meeting held to discuss the safety of Religious Minorities in New York.
Yesterday, on first International Day for Victims of Violence based on Religion or Belief, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted to draw the attention of international community on Kashmir.
The Indian Occupation Forces have even denied them their right to observe their religious practices, including Eid ul Azha.
As the world shows solidarity for victims of violence based on religion & belief, it must also move to prevent an impending genocide of Kashmiris in IOK.

Lying to the world at large, Khan accused that the Kashmiris were not even allowed to celebrate Eid ul Adha observed earlier this month. Ironically, Pakistan, the global terror exporter, has also decided to approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) over alleged human rights abuses in Kashmir.
However, Syed Akbaruddin, India’s permanent representative to the United Nations, shared a video on Twitter and took a dig at the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. He pointed out the irony in Khan who was accusing India of allegedly violating international humanitarian laws by “attacking innocent civilians” in Jammu and Kashmir despite the fact that Pakistan itself has been accused of Human Rights violations against minorities by the UN bodies.

The meeting took on the first-ever International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, which was established by a resolution of the General Assembly following a resolution led by the Polish government.
The New York meeting, hosted by Polish foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz, was attended by Sam Brownback – US ambassador for religious freedom, Michelle Bachelet – the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and Naveed Walter – President of Human Rights Focus Pakistan among others.
The most embarrassing moment for Pakistan came when Naveed Walter, the President of Human Rights Focus Pakistan, himself admitted that there were grave human rights violations against minorities in Pakistan. Amusingly, Pakistan NGO head Naveed Walter also called out minority rights violation in Pakistan where attacks are carried out on religious places.
“Today, a large number of people are marginalized in their own societies. The biased behavior dwells in other areas also, like the minorities. On the basis of religious affiliation as like in Pakistan, Ahmadis having a situation; like China, a growing number of countries using national security as a pretext for restricted religious expression at the role of religion in public domain,” said Naveed Walter.
Sam Brownback, the US Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom at UN meet on Safety of Religious Minorities in New York said, that religious minorities in Pakistan continue to suffer from prosecution either at hands of non-state elements or through discriminatory laws and practices.
Brownback also raised his concerns regarding Human rights violations in China. “We remain deeply concerned about the Chinese government escalating widespread and undue restrictions on religious freedom in China. We urge the Chinese government to respect the human rights & fundamental freedoms of everyone in that nation,” said Brownback.
Echoing the same sentiments, Lord Ahmad, British PM’s Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief said, “the United Kingdom has spoken up for rights of religious communities and minorities across the world. From Uyghurs in China, Christians and Ahmadis in Pakistan.”
The terrorist state of Pakistan, which displays its cowardice by unleashing terror across the world, is notoriously known for grave human rights violations. Apart from causing severe pain, misery and deaths by perpetrating terror, Pakistan commits human rights violations ethnic and religious minorities from Pakistan.
The Mohajirs, the Pashtuns, Ahmedias, the Balochs and even the religious minorities like Hindus and Christians have time and again accused the Pakistani establishment and security agencies of engaging in human rights violations against them.
