ISLAMABAD - Minister of State for Human Rights Barrister Usman Ibrahim has lashed out at the top bureaucrats of his own ministry for ignoring Kashmir cause in the international human rights conference in Islamabad.

Minister stated that the International Human Rights Conference held on February 19-21 was a “complete failure” as it did not serve the national cause, Pakistan Today has reported.

“It was doomed to be a failure due to non-inclusion of Kashmir issue in the agenda which was a big blunder. It was appreciated or acknowledged by international or diplomatic circles because it might have served their agenda,” the minister wrote in a note referred to Federal Secretary, Ministry of Human Rights, Ms Rabia Javeri Agha and Director General (DG) Kamran Azam Khan, asking both to explain why Kashmir Issue was not included in the agenda of the international conference.

The detailed note is also being submitted to the federal minister of Human Rights for information by the minister of state arguing why Kashmir issue was not included in the Agenda. Usman Ibrahim also declared the ignorance either a big blunder or intentional move and asked the concerned officers to clear their position in this regard.

Ministry of Human Rights (MOHR) had reportedly spent Rs 30 million for holding the International Human Rights Conference on February 19-21, 2018. Interestingly, the human rights violation in Indian Occupied Kashmir and brutality was not included in the conference agenda. The minister declared it either a big blunder or deliberate attempt owing to international pressures.

“The conference was appreciated and acknowledged by international or diplomatic circle because it might have served their agenda,” the paper reads. A detailed note on it is being submitted to Federal Minister separately, he said.

The Minister of State for Human Rights Barrister Usman Ibrahim also sought out the details of the expenses worth Rs 30 million during the International Human Rights Conference.

A source at the ministry told this scribe that Usman Ibrahim might move the matter to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for investigation on grounds of possible corruption charges.
