The founder of Pakistan political party Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain on Wednesday damned his country for its worsening human rights record saying there was a need for the United Nations to send observers to Pakistan and not India.
Now living in exile in London, Hussain said Pakistan should first answer the world over the genocide in Balochs and Pashtuns in Pakistan.
There have been enforced disappearances and human rights violations in Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa along with the occupied Gilgit-Baltistan province.
"The UN should be sending observers to Pakistan and not to India. India is doing very well," Hussain was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
MQM founder's remarks come as Pakistan accused India of committing genocide during the ongoing session of the UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council) in Geneva on Tuesday.
