Pakistan criticizes India’s attempt to portray Kashmiri movement as terrorism

UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan mission at the UN told the Security Council that India was suppressing struggle for Freedom of Kashmir effortlessly made distinguish militancy from persecution of legal right of regional Muslims for self-determination and national release.

“That’s right (of self-determination) is inherent and promised to the Kashmiris people Security Council,” said Ambassador Munir Akram. in written response to a speech made Ambassador of India to the UN on August 9 during the 15-member body debate on “Threats to International Peace and Security Caused by Terrorist Acts”.

Ruchira Kamboy, Permanent Representative of India at the United Nations, made the oft-repeated allegations that Pakistan – without naming it – is aiding terrorist groups and the “surprise” expressed in the UN counter-terrorism report is not taken into account of activity of several banned groups, especially those that have repeatedly attacked India.

Rejecting India’s insinuations, Ambassador Akram reiterated his strong condemnation of Islamabad. of terrorism in “in all forms and manifestations”, saying that Pakistan was the main victim of terrorism and continued to be attacked by terrorist groups associated with the Islamic State. like The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Jamaat ul-Ahrar (JuA), originating from outside Pakistan’s borders, “often sponsored and funded by our regional adversary.”

“It is important to explore why—despite global strategies, mechanisms and interventions – the threat of terrorism has especially increased in Asia, Africa and other places, and it turned out that they are so difficult to eradicate,” he said. in his response emphasizing need first and above all for access to the root causes of terrorism – injustice, oppression, foreign interference, occupation and suppression of right of peoples to self-determination.

“The escalation of conflicts in world region clear signal that the UN and international community have failed go back to those roots causes of conflicts and their attendant manifestations of terrorist violence.”

“Recent international counter-terrorism strategies, Akram added”have made no effort to distinguish terrorism from legitimate struggle for self-determination and national release.

“While the most dependent or busy peoples have been able to exercise their right to self-determination peacefully, there are some who were forcibly deprived of this right and were forced struggle for It. people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir were forced to do so in them fight for self-determination for over seven decades,” he said.

“History shows that such a popular struggle against colonial and foreign occupations were often repressed by equating them with terrorism. However, they always won.

“Following the colonial textbook, India tried to tarnish the legitimacy of Kashmir cause portraying it as terrorism and abusing their “counter-terrorism” laws, which are incompatible with human rights laws to perpetuate its ongoing illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir”.

Resolution 2649 of the UN General Assembly, adopted in 1970, “reaffirms legitimacy of in struggle of peoples under conditions of colonial and foreign domination recognized the right of self-determination to restore this right to themselves by any means at their disposal,” he said. out.

“Terrorism can and must be defeated; national liberation cannot be suppressed,” the Pakistani ambassador said.

Ambassador Akram also said that global counter-terrorism efforts have been failed to fight “state terrorism”.

“Today,” he said, “Pakistan has become a victim of of attacks by terrorist groups financed and orchestrated by hostile agencies and supported by a major regional government sponsor of terrorism to disrupt development of western and southern Pakistan.

“They were responsible for a little of the worst terrorist attacks, including against Chinese citizens at the University of Karachi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Chinese Consulate and the Pakistan Stock Exchange. in Karachi.

” international community responsible for condemnation use of terrorism as a tool of state policy and impunity, which is still associated with such state terrorism.”

pointing out that UN resolutions called for not linking “terrorism with any religion,” said Ambassador Akram use of phrases, like “jihadists”, “Islamists” and “radical Islam”, give lies of such protests.

“Pronunciation of some political leaders in certain countries that are proud of themselves on their ‘civilization’ fuels such anti-Islamic prejudices,” he said.

“When crime committed by a Muslim, it immediately qualifies as “terrorism”; when it is committed by a non-Muslim, it is simply violent crime” said the messenger, pointing to the splash in in emergence of right-wing, extremist and fascist movements in several countries which responsible for overwhelming majority of terrorist and violent acts than those committed by Muslims.

Consensus international definition of terrorism had to be taken into account new and new trends in context of terrorism, such as the terrorist threat posed by racially, ethnically or ideologically motivated individuals and groups who resort to terrorist tactics.

“These include violent actions by white supremacists, far right far right, violent nationalist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, anti-Muslim and Hindu groups and ideologies. in various parts of in world”.

Corresponding changes should be made to the UN Security Council sanctions regime to include these new and emerging threats and end stigma of Islam and Muslims, he said, noting that there are no non-Muslim groups on lists of “terrorists” drawn up by the Council.

Disinformation campaigns aimed at spreading hate, conspiracy theories and other such harmful content terrorist groups, individuals and legal entities, must also counteract, and terrorism must be defeated comprehensively, everywhere, in in all its manifestations,” Akram said.

« worldRussian efforts to combat terrorism cannot remain limited to only certain ideologies and select organizations,” he said, adding that the Security Council and international community must combat all forms of terrorism and take collective action without double standards or discrimination.

“We must confront and defeat ISIS, al-Qaeda and their associated terrorist groups. But we have to also counter terrorism of hatred and ambition currently comes from other sources.
