India slams Pak for weaponising women’s rights issues for political gains in J&K

AMN

India has slammed Pakistan for weaponising women’s rights issues for self-serving political gains in Jammu and Kashmir. First Secretary in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN, Paulomi Tripathi, says it is ironical that a country where violations of women’s right to live in the name of honour go unpunished is making baseless statements about India.

She stated this during the UN General Assembly Third Committee session on ‘Advancement of Women’ yesterday. Ms. Tripathi did not directly name Pakistan but was responding to references made to Jammu and Kashmir by Islamabad’s outgoing envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi.

Ms. Tripathi asserted that from the first woman President of the General Assembly, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, to women scientists at ISRO, Indian women have long served as inspiration for many. She told the session that gender equality and empowerment of women are an integral part of India’s inclusive development strategy.

The Committee is one of the six in the UN General Assembly, deals with social, humanitarian affairs and human rights issues.
