India slams UN for failing to acknowledge growing hatred against Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism
India has questioned the 'selectivity' practised by the United Nations, alleging that the international organization has failed to acknowledge the rise in hatred and violence against Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism although it had been condemning attacks against Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
India stated that it firmly condemned 'anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and anti-Christian acts'. 'However, (the) UN resolutions on such important issues speak only of these three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Islam and Christianity) together. This august body (UN General Assembly) fails to acknowledge the rise of hatred and violence against Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism also,' Ashish Sharma, First Secretary of the Permanent Mission of India to the UN in New York, said.
