Pakistan has raised serious questions over India’s eligibility to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Pakistan’s permanent representative to United Nations Munir Akram, Speaking at UN General Assembly, said New Delhi was in blatant violation of 15-member body’s resolutions aimed at settling the decades-old Kashmir dispute.

“How come a violator of international laws, can become a custodian of peace in the world?”

Munir Akram further added that India had imposed a complete curfew and lockdown on 8 million people for over 100 days and it is perpetrating massive violations of human rights against them and against its own minority communities. Munir Akram urged the UN to consider efforts for peace of a country, which desires to become a permanent member of UNSC, rather than focusing on its strength.

Earlier, Munir Akram had met UN General Assembly President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande and apprised him regarding the deteriorated situation of the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK).
