United Nations denies Indian allegations on Kashmir report

SRINAGAR: The Pakistani Foreign Office (FO) on Wednesday said the United Nations had denied Indian allegations on a report on Kashmir.

Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal took to twitter to express disappointment with the country’s eastern neighbour.

“Deeply disappointed by India dismissing the report without examining it,” Dr Faisal wrote. He further said that India had failed to address the very serious concerns raised by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) about the grave human rights situation in Kashmir.

“OHCHR has categorically denied any contact between the high commissioner and Zafar Bangash,” Dr Faisal said, adding that the Kashmir report of OHCHR has quoted official Indian sources including the Indian Parliament, Indian Supreme Court and Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).

The foreign office spokesperson further stated that OHCHR is disturbed by the sustained Indian attempts to distract and divert the focus from the human rights violations in Kashmir. “OHCHR has said the Kashmir report is about the human rights of millions of people in Kashmir,” Dr Faisal said.

The foreign office further said that Pakistan has welcomed a visit by the Commission of Inquiry (COI) both to Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) and Kashmir as recommended by the report. (PTK)
