India and Pakistan have fought three major wars since the latter declared its independence in 1947.

"In this council, Pakistan has referred to situation of minorities in India". The rising concern is disturbing now as Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir region has become the hub of global terror. "It will also not be able to hide the tremendous and very concerning human rights violation and denial of freedom that has been going in those parts under Pakistan's control for the last 70 years", Baglay told the media in Delhi. Political activists and religious persons and students of Pakistan occupied Gilgit Baltistan (PoGB) who do not comply with ISI's dictation have been framed under anti-Terrorist act of Schedule 4.

"The essence of your question is about the issue of Kashmir".

In a joint statement issued on Thursday Karete said that people of Jammu and Kashmir are striving for right to self-determination and will never allow its division or annexing off its part or territory either to India or Pakistan.

In 2015, India had objected to Pakistan holding polls in Gilgit Baltistan.

He also said that a constitutional amendment would be made to change the status of the region, through which the Dollars 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) passes.

Pakistani analysts, according to reports, believe that the move could, in fact, be part of the Pakistani policy to assuage the Chinese.

Geneva: Minorities have held positions at the highest levels in India, including becoming presidents and vice-presidents, while Pakistan only has blasphemy laws for their minorities, India retorted at the ongoing session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

Separatists in Jammu and Kashmir, including Yasin Malik, have in the past reportedly warned Nawaz Sharif about their reservations on how such a move could have serious implications on their stand on the Kashmir issue, or demands of an independent Kashmir. In fact, keeping these areas as a disputed territory is problematic for Pakistan so they want to make it their fifth province.

The Indian diplomat claimed that Pakistan was selective in its approach to tackling terror groups operating within and outside Pakistan.
