Taking J&K issue to UNHRC shows Pakistan`s bankruptcy: Harish SalveNEW DELHI: Raising the bogey of alleged human rights violations in Kashmir will expose Pakistans phoney concerns for the cause, said Harish Salve, former Solicitor General of India, who successfully pleaded the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav at the International Court of Justice recently.

"The safety and security of its people is the responsibility of every constitutional government, and Pakistan`s frustration at its inability to foment violence in Kashmir expressed as a phoney concern for human rights," said Salve in an email response to IANS.

His response came when asked to comment on the likelihood of Pakistan moving a resolution at UNHRC alleging human rights violations in Kashmir. The UNHRC session is slated to begin from Monday.

Salve said he is hopeful that Pakistan is treated with contempt by the global community, which it deserves for acts like 26/11.

"Raising this issue before the international community shows Pakistan`s political bankruptcy and an attempt from diverting public attention from their most prolific global export -- terrorism," Salve said, adding that Pakistan cannot alienate itself from terrorism.

Salve`s international experience comes handy, as he countered the Pakistani lawyers` tirade attempting to malign the image of India at an international judicial forum.
