"Pakistan epicenter of international terrorism," reads poster outside UN Office
New Delhi : Posters have been placed outside the United Nations Human Rights Council office demanding a strict action against Pakistan for allegedly abetting terrorism. The posters have been placed by the Pakistan minorities.
The minorities said their country was a threat to world security and thus they protested during the ongoing 43rd session of the UNHRC.
"Since 9/11, Pakistan has been the epicentre of International Terrorism. The region of North Waziristan which borders Afghanistan used to be a hub of local and international terrorists linked to groups, including Al-Qaeda and Taliban as well as other terrorist networks," states the statement made by NGO in Geneva.
As mentioned by the NGO, the protest is against the contribution of Pakistan Army to the international terrorist organisations.
As per minorities in Pakistan, the government has been actively involved in the terrorist activities within the region and beyond by actively sponsoring the terrorist groups.
"The terrorists in Pakistan are able to organise, plan, raise funds, and operate easily in the country because of the lack of governance and political will to address the problem," the minorities pointed out in Geneva.
As per their complaints, the Pakistan government has not been very keen in ensuring a solution to the issues related to illegal activities.
This year's session in Geneva will continue till March 20 and will aim to assess the member nations' progress towards human rights goals.
