Pakistani Minorities recently erected a banner that termed the nation’s military as the “epicentre of terrorism” in Geneva during the currently ongoing meetings of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
The banner, which read “Pakistani Army Epicenter of International Terrorism”, was kept close to the famous Broken Chair during the 43rd session of UNHRC.
News organization ANI also added that a protest is planned by Baloch and Pashtun activists before the United Nations office against the contribution of the Pakistani military in their involvement in terror activities.
The activists are requesting that the UN should denounce Pakistan, make prompt move to stop the growth of terrorism in the country and set up the ethical law in the region.
It is important to note that India on Friday asked the neighbouring nation to stop funding terrorist outfits and rule out the terrorist’s camps operation in the country. India’s statement came seven days after the internationally renowned guard dog Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in Paris held Pakistan in its ‘Grey List’ and cautioned the nation of penalty if the nation doesn’t stop the terror funding and neglect the illegal activities going on in the country.
India has also asked its neighbour to look into the human rights violation of the minorities in the region and end the harassment that they face owing to their minority status. India has requested the leadership of Pakistan to end forced religious conversion of women from Hindu, Sikh and Christian religions and stop persecution against Shias, Ahmadiyas, Ismailia and Hazaras.
The 43rd session of UNHRC began in Geneva on February 24 and will proceed till March 20.
