New York, 24 June 2022 (TDI): Assistant Director UN Mission of Pakistan in New York Muhammad Shahsawar highlighted the Indian atrocities towards the minorities at the annual UN General Assembly plenary debate on R2P (Right to protect).
The truth of the matter is that Jammu and Kashmir is not an integral part of India. It never was; it never will be. This is evident in all the UN Maps and official documents: Muhammad Shahsawar, AD, UN, 🇵🇰 #RoR #R2PDebate @UN @ForeignOfficePk pic.twitter.com/l7pXZq9MXp

The aim of this debate was to give all states a chance to express their views on global governance, corruption, violent conflict, inequality, and climate change.
Assistant Director of Pakistan Mission mentioned that Indian minorities of Christians, Muslims, and Dalits are publically lynched at the hands of Hindutva zealots.
Hindutva-inspired BJP RSS government of India has launched a program to cleanse India of all vestiges of its Islamic heritage.
This includes the destruction of Muslim mosques, shrines, and monuments, and the transformation of India’s Muslims into oppressed, as well as second-class citizens and even non-citizens.
In this regard, he also mentioned that the recent call for Muslim genocide, state complexity in extra-judicial measures, and state-sponsored grave human rights abuses against Muslim protestors is highly condemnable.
In addition to that, he stated that hate-driven derogatory remarks made toward Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم by senior government officials were alarming.
Issue of Jammu and Kashmir
Assistant Director also raised the issue of Jammu Kashmir stating that as per all UN maps and official documents Jammu and Kashmir were never a part of India and they never will be.
While quoting the Security Council Resolutions 47, 91, and 122, he highlighted that the decided solution for the fate of Jammu and Kashmir was a free and impartial plebiscite.
Permanent Representative of Pakistan in the United Nations, Muhammad Munir Akram also made his remarks in this debate.
Unfortunately, the proponents of R2P have observed a deafening silence on these Indian crimes in occupied Jammu & Kashmir. The concept of R2P should also be invoked to prevent the danger of an impending #genocide against 200M Muslims of India:Amb Munir Akram #R2PDebate #IIOJK @UN pic.twitter.com/vQr8PDHZZk

He regretfully mentioned that proponents of the Right to Protect are deafeningly silent on the Indian Crimes in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In addition to that, the invoking of the concept of the Right to Protect will prevent the outcomes of the impending genocide targeted against 200 million Muslims of India.
