Pakistan accused India for the way minorities are treated in India during the UN meeting, and Indian had a fitting reply to the Pakistan representative.
India called Pakistan a country that has alienated its own people through continued mistreatment of Hindus, Christians, Shias, Ahmadiyas, and other minorities. Pakistan referred to the situation of minorities in India, without carefully reviewing the facts that minorities in India have been the country’s Prime Ministers, Presidents, Vice-Presidents, senior cabinet ministers, senior civil servants, cricket team captains and even Bollywood stars. Is it possible to say the same for minorities of Pakistan?
India also raised issues on Kashmir that Pakistan has forcibly occupied in the past (PoK – Pakistan occupied Kashmir). It is unfortunate that in recent times the people of PoK have become victims of sectarian conflict, terrorism and extreme economic hardship because of Pakistan’s occupation and discriminatory policies.
