Pakistan senate says UN has failed to protect Human rights in Kashmir.
The Senate of Pakistan passed a unanimous resolution condemning the illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir by India and atrocities being committed by Indian troops on the innocent people of occupied Kashmir.
The resolution moved by Leader of the House, Raja Zafarul Haq, said India boasts itself as the largest democracy of the world but it has been denying the most fundamental human rights to the Kashmiri people. It said Pakistan has always made efforts to hold multilateral and bilateral dialogue with India to resolve the Kashmir dispute but it continuously rejected such proposals. It said that the UN, human rights organisations and the US administration must understand and fulfill their longstanding commitment to the amicable resolution of Kashmir dispute according to the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
Speaking during the session, Senate Chairman, Raza Rabbani said that the United Nations had failed as an international body responsible for keeping the peace. “How can the UN protect human rights when it is taking part in human rights violations itself?” he asked. The Senate Chairman also said the UN does not give the rights of Muslim countries the same importance as it does to the rights of other nations.
During a debate on the matter, Senate members said that the international community and the UN responsible were not making efforts to stop Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. They also said that India was the biggest contributor to human rights violations in the world.
