India has said, it is time to collectively take decisive and firm action against terror groups and their abettors who threaten the fundamental human right to life. Making a statement at the United Nations Human Rights Council, UNHRC in Geneva, Secretary (East) in the Ministry of External Affairs Vijay Thakur Singh said, the world should call out those who are misusing the UNHRC platform for malicious political agendas under the garb of human rights. Without naming Pakistan, she said, those who are attempting to speak on the human rights of minorities in other countries are trampling upon them at will in their own country. She said, they cry victim when they actually are the perpetrators.

Exercising its right to respond to Pakistan Foreign Minister’s statements at the UNHRC, First Secretary of Permanent Mission of India to UN, Vimarsh Aryan said, India is not surprised at Pakistan’s hysterical statements with false narratives aimed to politicize and polarize the forum. He said, Pakistan realizes that India’s decision cuts away ground from under its feet by creating obstacles in its continuing sponsorship of cross-border terrorism.
