Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s full speech on Kashmir at UNHRC: Lies, falsification and distortion

new york, sep 11

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday raked up the Jammu and Kashmir issue at the UN Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) and indulged in false propaganda on Kashmir during his 15-minute long speech before the international community.

During his address, the Pakistani minister repeatedly lied about the situation in Kashmir and kept on distorting facts only to grab the attention of UNHRC members. Qureshi made false claims about the restrictions imposed on the civilians in the region and detention of political leaders by Indian government.

“Today, I have knocked on the doors of the Human Rights Council, the repository of the world’s conscience on human rights, to seek justice and respect for the people of Kashmir,” Qureshi said while addressing the 42nd session of UNHRC.

“For the last six weeks, over 8 million Kashmiris, already in the clutches of decades-long Indian oppression, have been virtually caged by an illegal military occupation – that has swelled in ranks, within days, from 700,000 to nearly a million troops,” Qureshi claimed.

The Pakistani minister leveled allegations and made unsubstantiated claims about the situation prevailing in Jammu and Kashmir and went on to claim that Kashmir had been converted into world’s “largest prison”.

Qureshi continued with his country’s false propaganda against India and claimed that people in the region are being denied access to basic amenities, including medicines.

Qureshi also talked about detention of political leaders in Kashmir and false claimed that people have been “caged” in Kashmir over the past six weeks.

“For the last six weeks, India has transformed Occupied Jammu & Kashmir into the largest prison on this planet, with virtually no access to basic amenities and means of communication. Shops are running short of supplies, hospitals of life-saving medicines, and the sick and wounded – many of them due to the direct and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian occupation forces – unable to access even emergency health services,” Qureshi said in order to propagate his country’s false propaganda.

Continuing his vitriolic diatribe against Indian goverment, Qureshi crossed all limits of decency and based his claims only on falsehood and false claims when he claimed that Indian government is committing ‘genocide’ in Kashmir. The frustration of Pakistan became evident when Qureshi called Indian government murderous, misogynistic and xenophobic.
