43rd UNHRC session: 'Pakistani Army Epicenter of International Terrorism' poster displayed at Broken Chair in Geneva


ANI Europe
A banner with the slogan - 'Pakistani Army Epicenter of International Terrorism' - has been put up at the iconic Broken Chair during the 43rd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council. It aims to draw attention to global terrorism emanating from Pakistan and to urge the United Nations to take immediate steps to deal with the threats to global security.
A protest is scheduled to be held by Baloch and Pashtun activists in front of the United Nations Office of Geneva at Broken Chair against the involvement of the Pakistani military establishment in breeding terror outfits.
Since 9/11 Mumbai terror attack, Pakistan has been the epicentre of international terrorism, and the region of North Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan, used to be a hub of local and international terrorists linked to groups such as Al-Qaeda and Taliban.
The Pakistani government has been actively involved in terrorist activities within the region and beyond by actively sponsoring terrorist groups.
The unregulated financial structure of Pakistan paves the way for the irregular transfer of money while feeding terrorism in the country. According to reports, terrorists in Pakistan are able to organise, plan, raise funds, and operate easily in the country because of lack of governance and political will to address the problem.
The government is not willing to tackle this issue due to its engagement with illegal activities. Therefore, the activists are demanding that the UN should reprimand Pakistan, take immediate action to stop this and establish the rule of law in the region.
