India calls out OIC-IPHRC on Friday for criticizing a judge’s decision in the Yasin Malik terror funding case, saying the group has tacitly shown support for terrorist operations.
India has urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) not to legitimize terrorism in any way, claiming that the world wants zero tolerance for the threat.
According to Ministry of External Affairs(MEA) spokeswoman Arindam Bagchi, Malik’s terrorist acts have been documented and shown in court.
Bagchi responded to media questions about the OIC- IPHRC comments on the NIA Court’s decision involving Yasin Malik by saying that India finds the comments unacceptable.
“The comments made today by the OIC-IPHRC criticizing India for its decision in the Yasin Malik issue are unacceptable to India. The OIC-IPHRC has tacitly voiced support for Yasin Malik’s terrorist operations, which have been documented and proven in court. The international community demands zero tolerance for terrorism, and we ask the OIC not to legitimize it in any way “Bagchi explained.
Earlier on Wednesday, Yasin Malik, a separatist from Jammu and Kashmir, was sentenced to life in prison by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) court in a terror funding case.
Malik was sentenced to life in jail as well as a fine of Rs 10 lakh by the NIA court.
He was twice sentenced to life in prison. The National Institute of Justice had sought the death penalty for the separatist leader, who was found guilty on May 19.
Malik had stated in court that he would not defend the charges brought against him.
