India at UN: Pakistan supporting cross-border terrorism a major issue
United Nations : Raising concerns over the security of its citizens and violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir, India said that one of the major problems it is facing is Pakistan's continuous support to cross-border terrorism.
Speaking during the 40th session of UNHRC in Geneva, First Secretary of Permanent Mission of India to the UN Mini Kumam said that Pakistan military or its political leadership used UN proscribed terror organization Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) as an instrument of state policy was something that was already in public domain.

While slamming Pakistan for misusing the Council “for its ritual of raking up malicious propaganda against India,” Kumam said that an issue that really needs attention is "Pakistan’s illegal occupation of part of Indian State of J&K and the suffering of the people of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). J&K is an integral part of India."
“Pakistan wrecked UN resolutions by violating its obligations to vacate territories under its control,” she added.
Attacking the neighbouring country for the treatment meted out to the minority communities there, Kumam said, “Pakistan is known to the international community for its acts of aggression, harbouring safe havens for terrorists, military courts trying civilians, harassment of minorities through blasphemy law, forced conversions and marriages of minorities in Sindh, Balochistan & Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, mass cases of enforced disappearances in north-western Pakistan, state-sponsored extreme prejudices, religious intolerance and attacks on Muslim minorities, such as Shias, Ahmadiyas, Ismailia and Hazaras.”
