Prime News, National (New Delhi), June 14:- India on Thursday rejected the UN report alleging human rights violations in Kashmir. Calling it “ fallacious, tendentious and motivated,” New Delhi questioned the intent behind bringing out a report with “a selective compilation of largely unverified information.”
Earlier today, the United Nations released the first of its kind report on alleged human rights violations in both “Indian-administered and Pakistan-administered Kashmir” and sought an international inquiry into these abuses.
In a strong reaction, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said the report is “overtly prejudiced” and seeks to build a “false narrative”.
Highlighting cross-border terrorism from across the border, the ministry said that the authors of the report have “conveniently ignored the pattern of cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistan and territories under its illegal control.”
“Such malicious reports cannot undermine the will of the people and the Government of India to take all measures necessary to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country from cross-border terrorism,” it added. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
