Why only bothered about Muslims in J&K, not in China: US asks Pak

Sep 27, 2019 19:25 IST

The US has asked Pakistan why it is only bothered about the human rights of Muslims in Kashmir and is not highlighting the "horrific conditions" of Muslims in China. Alice Wells, US Acting Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asia criticised Pakistan for not speaking out against China, which has detained an estimated one million Uyghurs and other Turkic-speaking Muslims in Xinjiang province. The comment comes just ahead of Pakistan's speech at the UNGA where it is expected to raise the Kashmir issue.
