Geneva: Pakistan, who is making a big fuss that India is trampling human rights in Kashmir, received a major jolt. Senge H Sering, an activist from Gilgit-Baltistan, a province in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), has appealed that PoK is a part of India and India should take it over. Sering made this demand in front of the UN Human Rights Commission and requested that the people of the region should be relieved of Pakistani terrorism.
The people of Gilgit-Baltistan are under a major threat from the terrorism sponsored by the Pakistan military. Basically, Pakistan has no right over this region. Sering stated that the area is a part of Ladakh and emphatically demanded that India should take control over this region. Sering also reminded that 70 years ago, when Pakistan attacked Jammu-Kashmir, India withdrew its military from this region in response to the request by the United Nations.
But Pakistan considers this as its territory and this is entirely wrong. Therefore, Sering said that India should take over this region and relieve the people of this region from Pakistani colonialism and make them a part of India. All those who are peacefully protesting in Gilgit-Baltistan are kidnapped. Some people even have to face a financial boycott. Sering levelled a serious accusation that Pakistan is carrying out a genocide in this way.
The US Human Rights Commission had made some serious allegations against India since the last few days. The UN Human Rights Commission has opposed the implementation of CAA law and has appealed to the Indian Supreme Court to allow them to present their position. The UN Human Rights Commission has also accused India of trampling the human rights in Kashmir. The Indian Foreign Minister had severely criticised the inconsistent stand of the UN Human Rights Commission.
The UN Human Rights Commission is expressing opinions about Jammu-Kashmir but is not willing to see the developments in PoK. Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar retorted that the UN Human Rights Commission is also not ready to talk about the Pakistan-sponsored terrorism. Against this background, Senge H Sering, Director of the Institute of Gilgit-Baltistan Studies, seems to have shown the mirror to the UN Human Rights Commission.
The atrocities against the Pashtun people in Pakistan also has been brought up at the Human Rights conference. Giving slogans that the Pashtun people are being massacred in Pakistan, the Pashtun activists held protests outside the Human Rights Commission building.
