ISLAMABAD: Pakistan desires India to set its personal home so as after the latter accused Pakistan of violating minority rights and lodged its protest over the Hindu temple incident in Karak final week.
An announcement by Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri issued on Saturday categorically rejected the “unwarranted assertions” by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs in reference to the Hindu temple incident in Karak.
It learn that this isn’t the primary time the Indian authorities has tried to feign concern for minority rights elsewhere whereas being probably the most “egregious and persistent violator of minority rights itself”.
Last week, an offended mob attacked and set ablaze the shrine of a Hindu saint in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Karak. Video clips going viral on social media present hordes of individuals breaking and desecrating the location whereas chanting slogans. Smoke may be seen emitting from the shrine after it was set on fireplace.
Chaudhri mentioned the RSS-BJP regime’s report is replete with cases of gross and systemic violations of the rights of minorities, particularly Muslims.
The spokesperson mentioned as a perennial purveyor of state-sponsored discrimination towards its minorities, India is in no place to hold forth on the problem of minority rights elsewhere.
The FO’s assertion recognized a number of violations of minority rights by India.
India had reportedly conveyed “serious concerns” to the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi at “repeated instances of similar nature against members of the minority community” after the Karak incident.
The clear distinction between India and Pakistan in respect of minority rights might be gauged from the truth that the accused within the Karak incident had been instantly arrested and orders had been issued for restore of the temple, the FO assertion learn.
Given these incontrovertible details, the spokesperson mentioned the Indian authorities can be effectively suggested to set its personal home so as fairly than feigning concern for minority rights elsewhere.
