UN Human Rights Council slams India

India came under fire yet again from the UN Human Rights Council over its threat to deport 40,000 Rohingyas, cow vigilantism and the recent murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh. Earlier this year, the UN body had slammed India for rising communalism, caste violence and attacks on Africans besides criminalisation of same sex relationships.

Kicking off the 36th session of the Council in Geneva on Monday , the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, criticised New Delhi's current measures to deport the Rohingya refugees “at a time of such violence against them“.
