New Delhi: India responded firmly to Pakistan’s accusations regarding Jammu and Kashmir during a session at the UN Human Rights Council, emphasizing that a nation with a poor human rights record should refrain from meddling in other countries’ internal affairs. Asserting its ‘Right to Reply’, India rebuffed Pakistan’s commentary, asserting that Pakistan lacks the standing to intervene in matters internal to India.

Speaking at the 55th Regular Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, India’s first secretary Anupama Singh reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are integral parts of India. She lamented the misuse of the council’s platform to propagate baseless allegations against India.

Responding to Pakistan’s references to India, Singh expressed disappointment at the false accusations made against India on the council’s platform. She underscored the irony of Pakistan’s criticism given its own dismal human rights record, citing the persecution of the Christian community in Jaranwala city in August 2023 as an example.

Singh condemned Pakistan’s support for UNSC-sanctioned terrorists and accused the country of sponsoring terrorism globally. She concluded by highlighting the challenges faced by Pakistan, including terrorism and economic instability.

The ongoing UNHRC session, which commenced on February 26, will continue until April 5. The exchange between India and Pakistan is part of a broader diplomatic discourse between the two nations. Last year, India emphasized the need for a terrorism-free environment for normal ties with Pakistan.

India’s External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, previously emphasized in an interview that Pakistan’s future depends on its actions and choices. He urged Pakistan to address its economic challenges, including dwindling forex reserves, high inflation, and currency depreciation.
