Demanding an apology from the UN for directly interfering in the internal affairs of India by advising to repeal APFSA, the VHP urged the Government of India to immediately reject the UN report. In its report the UN has ‘asked’ India to repeal AFSPA from the areas that are ‘disturbed’ like Jammu & Kashmir, Manipur and other north-eastern areas.
In a press statement issued on March 31, the VHP working president Dr Pravin Togadia said, “We have certain basic questions: If the UN claims to be the world caretaker (which it is not really) then where was the UN when millions of Kashmiri Pundits, Sikhs faced ethnic cleansing in Kashmir 1990? Where was the UN when the Hindu women were striped in Kashmir by jehadis, many raped, killed and some were released with the lines written on their breasts – ‘Hindus, leave your women behind for us and you get out of Kashmir’? Since then millions of Kashmiri Pundits, Sikhs have been staying in shabby conditions in the camps without any human rights, voting rights, without any hope to get their land, homes, and temples back. Where has been the UN all these years? Millions of Hindus are chased away, many killed, converted forcibly in Pakistan and Bangladesh. Hoards of them are fleeing into Bharat where they have been staying in temporary shelters with no help from the Government. Where is the UN? In Malaysia on the streets thousands of Hindus were brutally lathi charged only for being Hindus, their temples razed to build mosques – where is the UN? In Assam, Karbi Anglong and other original tribes have been facing massacre even now and living in temporary camps in fear. Where is the UN?”
