Pakistan has been at forefront of protecting human rights: President

KARACHI, Pakistan: President Dr Arif Alvi has said that Pakistan has been at the forefront of protecting human rights, and hosted 3.5 million Afghan refugees for decades

In his address at a Seminar on human rights in Indian Occupied Kashmir held in Karachi on Saturday, the president said that Pakistan fully stands with their Kashmiri brethren and will continue its moral, diplomatic and political support to them.

The president said that worst human rights atrocities are being committed by the Indian authorities in Occupied Kashmir. He said that India cannot suppress the Kashmiris’ just struggle of right to self-determination through brute force.

Throwing light on the worst form of racial discrimination engulfing India, the president said that internal turmoil in that Country will eventually lead to its destruction.

President Arif Alvi said that minorities in the neighboring Country are fear of persecution by the dominant majority of Hindus. He referred to recent verdict of the Indian Supreme Court on Babri Mosque which was demolished by Hindu bigots in 1992. He said that even the Supreme Court of India seems influenced by the Hindutava ideology prevailing in the country under the BJP-led government.

The president urged the International Community to play its due role in pressing upon India to ensure the human rights of Kashmiri population.
