Pakistan calls on UNSC to ban RSS

Geneva, Jan 14: Pakistan has proposed an action plan at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to tackle what it calls “violent extremist supremacist groups”, including the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), claiming the organisation poses a “clear and present danger” to international peace and security.”

These violent extremist supremacist groups pose a clear and present danger to regional and international peace and security,” government-operated news agency Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) quoted Munir Akram, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) as telling the panel.

The 15-member council had convened on January 12 to review global cooperation in combating terrorism.

“They (the extremist outfits) must be outlawed by the Security Council like other terrorist groups,” Akram said in his statement. “Such violent racist and extremist terrorism will inevitably breed counter-violence and validate the dystopian narrative of terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda”.

The Pakistani envoy to the UN claimed that the “Hindutva” ideology, practiced by India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its parent body the RSS, posed an existential threat to Indian Muslims. APP cited Akram as further claiming that the Delhi riot of 2020 was a manifestation of that ideology.

“International observers have warned against potential genocide in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and against India’s Muslims,” Akram was quoted as saying.

The Pakistani envoy also sought expansion of the mandate of the 1267 Sanctions Committee to include organisations like the RSS.

The woman was arrested after admitting to the assault, alleging that her boss was attempting to rape her

(Asian News Hub) – Police in Spain arrested a Bangladeshi woman in her thirties for allegedly cutting off her boss’s genitals with a knife, which she said she had done as he was attempting to rape her, reported Daily Mail.

She told officers she was trying to defend herself against sexual assault at a bar in Sant Andreu de la Barca around midnight on Tuesday.

The sliced man was rushed to the hospital for an emergency operation to reattach his penis.
The woman is currently being held at a police station following her arrest.

Officers have initiated an investigation into her statements that she was acting in self-defense but have not eliminated the prospect of arresting the bar owner once he is conscious enough to be questioned.

According to police sources, the woman had told them she had been being harassed for months and was forced to have sex with her boss several times before she assaulted him with the knife during his latest alleged rape attempt.

A representative for the regional Mossos d’Esquadra police force confirmed on Tuesday that the woman was arrested for the crime of wounding in the early hours of the morning after she contacted police to explain what happened.

The man’s nationality has not been revealed yet, but he is believed to be from Bangladesh or Pakistan.
