India on Friday called “unacceptable” comments by the OIC-IPHRC (Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission) criticizing New Delhi for the court ruling against Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik.
External Affairs Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi said the world was seeking “zero tolerance” against terrorism and urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) not to justify it in any way.
“India finds unacceptable the comments made today by the OIC-IPHRC criticizing India for the judgment in the Yasin Malik case,” Bagchi said.
“Through these comments, the OIC-IPHRC has implicitly expressed its support for the terrorist activities of Yasin Malik, which have been documented and presented in court,” he said. Bagchi was answering questions from the media regarding the OIC-IPHRC’s comments on the NIA tribunal judgment against Malik.
“The world seeks zero tolerance towards terrorism and we urge the OIC not to justify it in any way,” the spokesperson said.
A special NIA court this week sentenced Malik to life in prison in a terrorist financing case.
