In a series of tweets, UN Watch came down heavily on Pakistan. UN Watch tells Pakistan, “Your Presence on UN Human Rights Council is Intolerable”
In a response to a Govt of Pakistan’s tweet that said, “Blasphemy in garb of freedom of expression is intolerable”, UN Watch tells Pakistan that their presence on U.N. Human Rights Council is Intolerable.
In a response to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s henchman Dr Arslan Khalid who accused UN Watch of being a Pro-Israel NGO with bias against Muslims, UN Watch again came down heavily and tweeted a reply “Don’t you dare pretend to be a defender of Muslims when your government signs letters PRAISING the Chinese regime for its herding of 1 million Uighur Muslims into camps. At the U.N., @ImranKhanPTI officially backs genocide against Muslims. We fight it”
UN Watch on 5-October 2020 released a report opposing the election of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan to the U.N. Human Rights Council, calling for their human rights records to make them “unqualified” countries.
UN Watch in its report had said, “We call upon member states to refrain from voting in favor of China, Cuba, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan. These candidates’ records — on respecting human rights at home and in UN voting — fail to meet the UN criteria for Council membership.”
Report further read, “Pakistan commits serious human rights violations, including: unlawful or arbitrary killings; forced disappearance; torture; arbitrary detention; arbitrary interference with privacy; restrictions on freedom of expression and the press; violence against journalists; restrictions on freedom of association; restrictions on religious freedom; recruitment of child soldiers by nonstate militant groups; human trafficking; violence against racial and ethnic minorities; violence against LGBT; criminalization of same-sex conduct; child labor.”
However despite detailed reports submitted by UN Watch, Pakistan was still re-elected along with China to UN Human Rights Council. It shows that the current UN is following the Political agenda of China rather than serving the humanity in the member states.
When a band of bandits are made the Jury, can you expect justice? Same is the situation in United Nations Human Rights Council. The biggest murderers of Human Rights China and Pakistan are re-elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC).
Pakistan submitted its “Note verbale” dated 18 June 2020 for the Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General.
If you read that you will find it is totall false and concealment of facts. We are reproducing the Para 4 of the Annex to the note Verbale for our readers to look at the hypocricy of Pakistan
Para 4 reads, “Pakistan has made consistent progress in promoting and protecting human rights at home and abroad. This commitment is rooted in our Constitution and driven by the imperative of our functional democracy, improved rule of law and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. These ideals are further guided by the vision of our founding father, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who said, “We are the equal citizens of one State.” The Constitution of Pakistan lays down the basic human rights framework by guaranteeing fundamental freedoms and civil and political rights and also provides for the progressive realization and enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. This is supported by our efforts to strengthen the institutional framework for the realization of human rights at all levels.“
As you can see that Pakistan that is one of the murderers of Human Rights that has disappeared and killed over a million Baloch, Pashtuns, Mohajirs, Sindhis and either sold them for organ harvesting or killed them calls itself promoting and protecting Human Rights.
Pakistan’s Human Rights abuses against minority Shia Muslims
Pakistan ISI recently organized Protests by Sunni Muslims against Shia minority only in Pakistan Occupied Sindh and no where else in Pakistan. Why? We covered it in our previous article. Sindhis and Mohajirs that are largely Shias are fighting for Independence of Sindhudesh from illegal occupation of Punjabi Pakistan. In order to threaten them the Pakistan Intelligence agency ISI organized protests in Karachi.
Pakistan’s Human Rights Abuses in Balochistan
In illegally occupied Balochistan, Pakistan is doing the Ethnic cleansing of native Baloch nationals. Pakistan has disappeared lakhs of native Baloch and their families also do not know whether they are alive or dead.

Different Reports by Amnesty International against Human Rights Abuses by Pakistan
In its recent statement for House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Human Rights in Asia, dated September 21, 2020, Amnesty International stated
Authorities have repeatedly used enforced disappearance as an insidious form of extra-judicial punishment, silencing and intimidating political activists, religious minorities, and numerous others. Despite the protestations of Pakistani officials, cases of enforced disappearance are neither rare nor incidental; as of March 2019, the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances recorded 2178 unresolved cases.
In one emblematic case, human rights defender Idris Khattak was forcibly disappeared in November 2019. In a cruel twist of irony, Idris had spent years working to shed light on enforced disappearances in the country. After a sustained public outcry, the Pakistani government acknowledged custody of him but refused to reunite him with his family or charge him with a crime. Idris has yet to be granted access to his lawyer.
No one has ever been punished for taking part in an enforced disappearance in Pakistan.
Blasphemy Laws in Pakistan
In the same statement Amnesty International said, “Blasphemy laws continue to pose a profound threat to many of Pakistan’s religious minorities. These laws, which broadly proscribe actions, words, or expressions that may be interpreted as insulting to religious sensibilities, are broad, vague, and coercive. At varying times, they have provided license for the government to persecute religious minorities or for violent mobs to harm them. In one famous case, Asia Bibi, a Christian farm worker, was sentenced to death for blasphemy in 2010. Eight years later, Pakistan’s Supreme Court acquitted her of all charges. While Asia Bibi has since left the country, her attorney continues to face threats and abuse. The Governor of Punjab Salman Taseer was shot and killed by his bodyguard in retaliation for publicly defending her.”

Pakistan’s Human Rights Abuses against minority Hazara and Ahamadiya Muslims
In the same report, Amnesty International further exposed Pakistan on discrimination against minority Shias, Hazaras, Ahamadiya Muslims. Amnesty International stated, “Muslim minority denominations have not been immune from discrimination and violence. In 2018, an MIT-educated economist was removed from the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council after the government faced sustained pressure for appointing him due to his Ahmadiyya faith. Members of the Shi’a Hazara community of Quetta have been the target of violence, including during a bombing in April 2019 which killed at least 16 people.”
In its previous report dated 27 March 2019, Amnesty International called upon the Pakistan government to:
Ensure that all measures are taken to immediately end the practice of enforced disappearance.
Immediately disclose the fate or whereabouts of victims of enforced disappearance to their families.
Either immediately release the victims of enforced disappearance or ensure that they are brought promptly before a judge in a civilian court to rule on the lawfulness of their arrest or detention and whether they should be released.
If people continue to be detained, ensure that they are charged with an internationally recognizable offence and that their rights, including to a fair trial are fully respected.
Consult civil society and families of the disappeared on the draft bill to criminalize enforced disappearance and ensure that the offence is defined in accordance with international law and standards.
Ratify and implement into national law the International Convention for Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, including making declarations, pursuant to Articles 31 and 32 of the Convention, recognizing the competence of the Committee on Enforced Disappearance to receive and consider communications from individuals and states parties.
Ensure that all allegations of enforced disappearance are promptly, thoroughly, effectively, independently and impartially investigated and, where sufficient admissible evidence exists, prosecute those suspected of criminal conduct irrespective of their rank and status or the security agency they are affiliated with through fair trials.
Ensure that the victim families are free to associate with groups working on resolving the issue of enforced disappearances and to peacefully protest in public with fear of reprisal
Ensure all victims, including family members are provided with full and effective reparation to address the harm that they have suffered.
However no heed no heed was paid to the Amnesty call to end enforced disappearances and ironically Pakistan Army and Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI started disappearing more ethnic Baloch, Sindhi, Mohajir, Pashtun, Shia Muslims.
Prior to that in another report dated 6 November 2017 also Amnesty International in it report said that it is alarmed by reports it has received of a wave of enforced disappearances that have taken place over recent days, particularly of activists in the southwestern province of Baluchistan, and calls upon the Pakistani authorities to immediately carry out independent and effective investigations with a view to determining the fate and whereabouts of all missing people.
Human Rights Abuses by China
Bio-Terrorist China, using its Bio-Weapon of Chinese Corona Virus, killed over 1.09 Million people worldwide, is elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council.
China has used its Debt Trap Diplomacy to get elected to almost 17 of the different UN bodies. China has used its influence on African and other smaller nations using its Debt Trap to secure votes to gets its puppet countries to different United Nations bodies like UN Human Rights commission disregarding despite the fact that they are the murderers of Human Rights.
Chinese Human Rights Abuses in Tibet
In our previous article Stepped-Up Surveillance By CCP China In Tibet And Gross Human Rights Abuses we covered in details how China has stepped-up surveillance and censorship policies and campaigns to further deteriorate human rights situation in the PRC.
Tibetans in and out of China occupied Tibet are not only censoring themselves, they are censoring each other because Chinese authorities have made censorship the responsibility of the whole populace. Various methods of mass surveillance such as the “Grid Management” and “Double-Linked Household” systems obligate individuals to report suspicious activity and betray one another or face consequences.
Chinese authorities rely on a strict and pervasive disciplinary machine to punish individuals it sees as a threat, which has resulted in extraordinarily high level of mutual self-censorship among Tibetans. The power of the Chinese Party-State’s influence relies on a combination of basic surveillance and control instruments, a hierarchized system of monitoring and observation and distributed responsibility, and a normalization of fear, judgment, and social distrust.
The changes in China Occupied Tibet over the last decade represent a systematized social control mechanism that ignores human rights such as the freedom of speech, religion, and peaceful assembly. Online surveillance, CCTV cameras, bugged homes, and checkpoints provide simple instruments of observation and monitoring to expand the influence of the state. This ensures a maximum number of points of contact between the state and the Tibetan people through which power and influence can flow.
The Chinese Communist Party’s Human Rights Abuses in Xinjiang
The Chinese Communist Party’s Human Rights Abuses in Xinjiang have reached a boiling point. Recently, Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State in a statement said, “We call on the Chinese Communist Party to immediately end these horrific practices and ask all nations to join the United States in demanding an end to these dehumanizing abuses.”
The Chinese Communist Party is waging a targeted campaign against Uyghur women, men, and children, and members of other Turkic Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang, China. Documented human rights abuses include coercive population control methods, forced labor, arbitrary detention in internment camps, torture, physical and sexual abuse, mass surveillance, family separation, and repression of cultural and religious expression.
In recent years, these egregious abuses have increased through government policies under the pretext and justification of fighting the “three evils” of “ethnic separatism, religious extremism, and violent terrorism.”
The U.S. Department of State, scholars, human rights organizations, journalists, think tanks, and survivors of the Xinjiang camps themselves have provided ample information substantiating these abuses including:
Coercive population control through forced abortion, forced sterilization, and involuntary implantation of birth control;
The detention of more than one million Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, ethnic Kyrgyz, and members of other Muslim minority groups in internment camps;
The destruction and closure of mosques and other religious sites, prevention of youths from participating in religious activities, forced political indoctrination or “re-education”.

Human Rights Abuses in Hong Kong
China officially has the broad power to quash unrest in Hong Kong, as the country’s legislature recently unanimously approved new security laws, a plan to suppress subversion, secession, terrorism and seemingly any acts that might threaten national security in the semiautonomous city.
People have not forgotten the Chinese Massacre on students in Tiananmen Square. Besides that Another massacre took place in Chengdu. We covered it in details in our previous article Chengdu Massacre that happened in Parallel to Tiananmen Massacre
China has hijacked United Nations based on votes of African Nations
Besides employment to Chinese, Raw material sourcing from African nations, China has led a surprisingly effective, low-key campaign to lead mid-tier agencies at international organizations. At the United Nations, Chinese nationals now lead five of the 15 specialized agencies: the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Telecommunication Union, the Food and Agriculture Organization, the U.N. Department for Economic and Social Affairs, and the U.N. Industrial Development Organization.
On their own, these agencies really aren’t that important but collectively they provide Beijing with an increasingly influential platform to align the international agenda with their own priorities.
But none of it would have been possible without Africa’s support.
Time and again, either the entire African delegation, as was the case with last year’s successful election of Qu Dongyu to lead the FAO or sizable blocks of states vote to support Chinese candidates over rivals from the U.S. and Europe.
Three of the eight candidates vying to replace outgoing World Trade Organization Director-General Roberto Azevedo are Africans. China needs to plant a Director-General at WTO who can align with Chinese priorities as was done by the previous WTO head. Although former Nigerian Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is among the favorites to win the spot, Beijing, so far, has not indicated who it plans to support.
Most likely, the Chinese are going to wait for the African Union to make its selection for who it wants to lead the beleaguered trade body, and then Beijing will then follow the AU’s lead.
It’s improbably that the Chinese will support any of the other candidates from South Korea (too closely aligned with the US), Mexico (don’t want another leader from the Americas), the United Kingdom (one word: Huawei), Moldova (not strategically important), or Saudi Arabia (too messy given China’s interests in Iran and Israel), so at least the odds are in the favor of one of the African nominees.
It would be the ultimate chutzpah if the Chinese overlooked an African candidate for the role… but these are strange, weird times we live in, so it’s really anyone’s guess as to what’s going to happen.

Points to Ponder
Don’t you think it is fishy when the Murderers of Human Rights are elected as members to United Nations Human Rights Council?
Doesn’t it raises the question on the relevance of United Nations itself? Does that mean Chinese influence on United Nation and its bodies is so much that money and favors can buy the votes and can give clean chit to the murderers?
United Nations Human Rights Council was the last resort for the oppressed people in Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Balochistan, Sindh, Pashtunistan. By electing Pakistan and China does that mean that the voices of all the oppressed people in China and Pakistan will be suppressed by the Murderers of Human Rights?
