Pakistan has been given “concrete evidence” about its cross-border “encouragement and support” for the protests in Kashmir. India has also accused Pakistan of misusing the UN platform to further its despicable political objectives.

Indian representative mentioned that Pakistan is using terror to destabilize Kashmir, terrorism receives sustenance from Pakistan. Pakistan is using short-sighted tactics to divert attention as the terrorist breeding ground. Even after referring to UN Security Council resolutions, Pakistan has very conveniently forgotten it’s own obligation of vacating the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.

Really. Pakistan government has no sense of pride, or justice. Harboring terrorism, as mentioned and verified by several countries is a grave ill both to the nation and the world. And then, instead of cleaning it’s own territory, the country keeps interfering in another nation’s activities. And then it has its own issue of Balochistan. How can the country even find the pride to speak anything in the UNHR Council.

More than ten thousand people protested across 100 cities in Russia, covering all the 11 Russian time zone, against political corruption. Out of these, more than a thousand protesters were arrested, including Alexei Navalny, opposition leader and protest organizer. Mr. Navalny has now been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

The protesters who held rallies on Russia day, a national holiday, denounced President Vladimir Putin. The Moscow demonstration featured an unlikely scene of about 5,000 protesters rallying next to an enclosure with geese, a medieval catapult and bearded men in homemade tunics and carrying wooden shields.

Most of the protestors were younger, those who were born/raised during the 17 years of Putin rule. Although School and University staff warned the students to go in such rallies, most of the students unhesitatingly took part in the protests.

This is incredible. Younger generation standing up for the fight against corruption, that too in Russia. I do wish that everyone arrested is safe and sound.
