UN adopts Pakistan’s resolution for the protection of religious sites
By our correspondent.
NEW YORK: A Pakistan sponsored resolution for the protection of religious sites was adopted by the United Nations.
The resolution was a clear signal against threats of violence, destruction and any kind of damage caused to religious sites.
Babri Masjid was destroyed by hindu fanatics in 1992 but instead of rebuilding a mosque there, Modi’s government plans to build a Hindu temple there.
Saudi Arabia and other OIC countries co-sponsored Pakistan’s resolution, sending a clear message to the world.
Commenting on the development, Pakistan’s ambassador to the UN, Munir Akram said: I am happy that the @UN General Assembly today adopted by consensus a resolution – sponsored by & other OIC countries – on the protection of religious sites. Pakistan will continue to play a leading role in denouncing violent attacks on religious sites.
“Pakistan will continue to play a leading role in denouncing violent attacks on religious sites,” Akram said.
