India Mounts Pressure On Pak, Highlights “Terror Beyond Borders” At UN

United Nations: India at the United Nations mounted pressure on Pakistan, saying terrorism is the most serious violation of human rights. India highlighted terrorism emanating from beyond its borders, and urged the global community to take resolute action against the menace in all its forms and manifestations.

A lack of consensus in the Human Rights Council’s actions in situation-specific issues is a worrisome development that compromises its effectiveness and credibility, First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the UN Paulomi Tripathi said. Ms Tripathi was speaking at a General Assembly 3rd Committee session on ‘Report of the Human Rights Council’ on Friday.

“Terrorism is the most serious violation of human rights which emanates from beyond our borders. The international community must take resolute action against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations to prevent and stop abuse of human rights and fundamental freedoms of innocent people,” she said.

“Adoption of aggressive and confrontational approach and overly intrusive methods, without consultation and consent of the country concerned have been counterproductive, leading only to politicisation of human rights issues,” Ms Tripathi said.
