Pakistan wants India to make its home in India after accusing it of violating the rights of minorities and filing its protest over the Hindu temple incident in Karak last week. A statement issued by Foreign Office spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry on Saturday categorically rejected the Indian Foreign Ministry’s “unnecessary claims” regarding the Hindu temple incident in Karak. It has read that this is not the first time that the Indian government has tried to raise concerns for the rights of minorities elsewhere in the most egregious and persistent violation of the rights of minorities.
Last week, an angry mob attacked and set fire to the shrine of a Hindu saint in Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Video clips that have gone viral on social media show crowds of people chanting slogans and breaking the site and desecrating it. Smoke could be seen coming out of the shrine after the fire broke out. Chaudhry said the record of the RSS-BJP government was full of examples of serious and military violations of the rights of minorities, especially among Muslims.
The spokesperson said that as a 12-year buyer of state-sponsored discrimination against minorities, India was nowhere in a position to speak on the issue of minority rights. The FO statement identified several violations of minority rights by India. India had allegedly raised “serious concerns” with the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi over “similar incidents against members of the minority community” following the Karak incident.
The clear difference between India and Pakistan in terms of minority rights can be gauged from the fact that the perpetrators of the Karak incident were immediately arrested and temple repair orders were issued, the FO statement said. Yes, the FO statement said. In view of these insurmountable facts, the spokesperson said that the Indian government would be well advised to set up its own house instead of worrying about the rights of minorities elsewhere.Community Verified icon
