India Wednesday made it clear at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that Pakistan must fulfil its obligation to vacate its illegal occupation of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK).

The country’s representative at the UN said the central problem in Jammu and Kashmir is cross-border terrorism and Pakistan’s use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy.

“This fact needs due recognition by one and all,” India said.

India has long argued that Pakistan has illegally occupied PoK denying its people basic rights. It has also voiced its support for the people of the restive Balochistan region.

Indo-Pak relations have hit a new low over the past year following the terrorist attack on the Indian Army base in Uri in September last year and the eventual surgical strikes conducted by India to destroy terror launchpads in PoK. Talks between the two countries have been suspended after India made it clear that a conversation is not possible ‘in the shadow of terror.’ The conviction of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court and his sentencing to death has rocked the ties between the two countries even further. Jadhav’s case is currently being tried in the International Court of Justice.

    This is more of political nonsense coming out of Politicians. neither India nor stan is ever going to relinquish an inch of the part of Kashmir each country occupies. Instead of making these ic proclamations at the UNHRC India should get serious about finding a solution to this thorny issue. First thing the Indian side needs to do is get of this HINDUTUWA HORSE and start looking at Kasmiri Muslims as equals and Indian citizens and start treating them as such. Second, stop talking about s ping article 370. Both the Indians in rest of India and the Indians in Kashmir can live with it. Control the utterances of the extremists from RSS, SHIV SENA, BAJRANG DAL AND VHP in relation to Kashmir. Stop thumping your chest and act maturely and with compassion, enough blood has been shed, it is high time to act sensibly and resolve all differences through dialog instead of creating more drama at the UN.

      Correction: Line 1: nor stan should read nor Pak-is-tan. Correction: Line 3: these ic should read these id-io-tic. Correction: Line 7: Second, stop talking about "s ping" should read "scr-app-ing".

      All Bhats (Buts) are Brahmins of Kashmir converted to Islam. Since the Bhats are tall and lkight the stani Punjabis who are often dark and short feel inferior to them. Thus in contrast to the Kashmir Valley these Buts have become criminals and mafia dons in stan. Thus in the internet they behave the same. India has now surpassed militarily a Jewish supported China (the Chinese are busy cutting Muslim beards) and stan is too tiny But keep how the game is over POK will be liberated.

        Perfect approach every inch of Indian territory is sacred. Kashmir is the head of ancient Aryavarta. In reality Kashmir is pure Aryan Central Asia and its original border is with Wakan and next to Tajikistan. We have a great Home Minister in Shri Rajnath Singh. My advice to him is to bring total peace to this region by using our 1.3 billion manpower and to resettle the native nationalistic Kashmiri Brahmins back in their beloved Kashmir. Also, simultaneously start preparations of liberating POK at the appropriate time. Believe me it can be done as small stan is a proxy state and this will not last.

          This demand by India is based on historic truth. UN should enforce it.

                  There was no such country as India exists today prior to 1947, it was a conglomerate of kingdoms spread from Kashmir to Kanya kumari and from Baluchistan to Burma collectively referred to as India. Even at the time of Independence, Hyderabad and Patiala were states with independent governments. During the first war with stan, Nehru asked Maharaja Patiala to send his army to Kashmir, which he did. And all his army was killed, it was a ploy of Nehru to weaken the Raja and he succeeded. Cunning Brahmin was able to fool a trusting King, what the Brahmins have been doing for centuries.
