Right of Reply by India in response to the Statement made by Pakistan at the 39th Session of the Human Rights Council (10 to 28 September, 2018) during clustered Interactive Dialogue of the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in Agenda Item 3, delivered by Ms Mini Devi Kumam, First Secretary [12 September 2018, Geneva]

Mr. Vice President,

India exercises its right of reply in response to the statement made by Pakistan during the clustered Interactive Dialogue of the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention.

2. We reject all references made by Pakistan to the motivated and fallacious report on Kashmir. Our views on this matter have been made abundantly clear in the Council.Various international organizations have repeatedly reported on how enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings continue with impunity in Pakistan, particularly in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Sindh. The Working Group in its latest report has also expressed specific concern on the increasing number of cases of enforced disappearances in Pakistan. Pakistan is, therefore, well advised to seriously introspect on its own human rights record and stop wasting the valuable time of the Council to mislead the global community.

Thank you.
