India Finally Raises ‘Hinduphobia’ At The United Nations: World Must Recognize Hinduphobia and violence against Sikhs and Buddhists too

Most Popular

India’s Ambassador to the United Nations exposed the selective global terror strategy and called the United Nations to recognize ‘Hinduphobia’ along with other acts of religious hatred against Buddhism and Sikhism.

India’s U.N. envoy T.S.Tirumurti said that the U.N.’s latest Global Counter-Terrorism strategy passed last year is full of flaws and is selective, and could reverse gains from the global consensus in the “war on terror” post 9/11.

Indian envoy indicated the government’s discomfort with new terms being added to the definition of terrorism, he also said that terms like “violent nationalism” and “right-wing extremism” must not be included in resolutions on terrorism, as they would only “dilute” them.

“In the past two years, several member states, driven by their political, religious and other motivations, have been trying to label terrorism into categories such as racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism, violent nationalism, right-wing extremism, etc. This tendency is dangerous for several reasons,” Mr. Tirumurti said.

He was delivering a keynote address at a virtual conference organized by the Delhi-based Global Counter-Terrorism Centre (GCTC), where he said he spoke as Ambassador of India to the U.N. and not in his capacity as Chair of the Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) at the U.N. Security Council for 2022.

India assumed the chair of the CTC this month, and Mr. Tirumurti’s strong remarks suggest that India will oppose any expansion of the terms that are included in the UNSC’s discussions on terrorism until it demits the UNSC seat in December this year.
