India on Friday slammed OIC-IPHRC for its criticism of judgment in the terror funding case involving JKLF chief Yasin Malik and said the organisation has implicitly expressed support for the “terrorist” activities.
India urged the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) not to justify “terrorism” in any manner, saying the world seeks zero-tolerance against the menace.
Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said that Malik’s “terrorist” activities have been documented and presented in court.
Responding to media queries on the comments made by OIC-IPHRC on the judgement of NIA Court regarding Yasin Malik, Mr Bagchi said India finds the comments unacceptable.
“India finds unacceptable the comments made by OIC-IPHRC today criticising India for the judgement in the case of Yasin Malik. Through these comments, OIC-IPHRC has implicitly expressed support for the terrorist activities of Yasin Malik, which were documented and presented in the Court. The world seeks zero tolerance of terrorism and we urge OIC not to justify it any manner,” Mr Bagchi said.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) court on Wednesday awarded life imprisonment to Yasin Malik in a terror funding case.
The NIA court while sentencing life imprisonment to Malik also imposed a fine of ₹ 10 lakh.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment twice. NIA had sought the death penalty for Malik who was convicted on May 19.
Malik had told the court that he was not contesting the charges levelled against him. – ANI
