Geneva (Switzerland), Sep 30 (ANI): India hit back on Pakistan in United Nations Human Rights Council. First Secretary at Permanent Mission of India to UN at 45th Session of Human Rights Council, Pawan Badhe said, “Incessant attempts to malign India in all international forums are not going to change the fact that tens of thousands of minorities would not stop fleeing Pakistan. Pakistan’s India focused agenda demonstrates its hollowness when it comes to accountability and justice, for oppressing those standing for their rights. The pathetic state of affairs for journalists and human right defenders is well known when the deep state could make prominent journalist disappear in broad daylight.” “While world has progressed well, Pakistan is still at crossroads to understand real meaning of modern laws, democracy and human rights. Language of accountability, civic space, fundamental freedom, public participation is yet to find resonance with Pakistani authorities,” he added.
