China and Pakistan only countries to raise Kashmir at UNHRC, Indian delegation meets UNHRC chief to apprise of the situation

India firmly rejected Qureshi's allegations and hit back stating that a "fabricated narrative" on J&K came from "the epicentre of global terrorism" and from a nation, which conducts cross-border terrorism as a form of 'alternate diplomacy.'

While all the member countries of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) believe Kashmir issue to be an internal matter of India, Pakistan and China remain the only to raise Kashmir at the UNHRC. After it made Kashmir references at the meeting, a high-level Indian delegation led by MEA Secretary (East) Vijay Thakur Singh met UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Thursday at 3 pm (local time) in Geneva to apprise her about the current situation in the region.

Rajiv Kumar Chander, India’s ambassador and permanent representative to the UN was also present as a part of the delegation that met Bachelet.

This meeting was held at the backdrop of Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s claims, at the UNHRC meet on Tuesday, that India has transformed Jammu and Kashmir into a largest “caged prison on this planet” after the abrogation of Article 370. He went on to allege that human rights were being “trampled with impunity” in J&K.

India firmly rejected Qureshi’s allegations and hit back stating that a “fabricated narrative” on J&K came from “the epicentre of global terrorism” and from a nation, which conducts cross-border terrorism as a form of ‘alternate diplomacy.’

China at the UNHRC meet said it opposes any ‘unilateral action,’ which could complicate the situation in the region. It had urged both India and Pakistan to exercise restraint and avoid further escalation of tensions.

Pakistan is spooked ever since India abrogated Article 370 from J&K, which granted a special status to the state, bifurcating it into two Union Territories. Since then, it has been running from pillar to post trying in a bid to internationalise the Kashmir issue but has failed in all its attempts. The nation has been shunned globally for its stereotypical rhetorics over Kashmir, however, the perturbed country refuses to abstain.

In another futile attempt, it raked Kashmir issue in the UNHRC once again. While doing so, its Foreign Minister, had in a grand Freudian slip admitted that Kashmir is very much part of India.

Pakistan has been trying its level best to convince the entire world that India resorts to Human Rights violations in Kashmir. Sadly enough, it has not been able to convince its own ministers about the same.

Today, while speaking to Pakistani media, one of their own minister’s Brig. Ijaz Ahmed Shah admitted on record that Pakistan has failed to convince the international community. He was heard saying that people across the globe trust India not Pakistan on Kashmir. He also blamed Pakistan’s ‘ruling elite’ including Prime Minister Imran Khan for destroying the image of the country.
