Pakistan on Wednesday presented an action plan to the United Nations Security Council calling on member nations to outlaw violent nationalist supremacists groups, including India's RSS.

Munir Akram, Pakistan’s ambassador to the United Nations, called Hindutava ideology a threat to Indian Muslims. “Such violent racist and extremist terrorism will inevitably breed counter-violence and validate the dystopian narrative of terrorist organizations such as ISIS/Daesh and Al-Qaeda," Akram was quoted as saying by Dawn.

Pakistan also demanded expanding the mandate of the 1267 Santion Committee to include "nationalist terrorist groups" like the RSS.

Akram also called on states to designate acts of violent nationalist groups, including white supremacists and other racially and ethnically motivated groups, like terrorism, just as the world has done in the case of al Qaeda, ISIS, and other affiliated groups.

Pakistan envoy also raised the issue of Kashmir in his address and said the world needs to take note of “India’s state-sponsored terrorism in the region. The world needs to expand and adjust its counter-terrorism strategy to defeat terrorism in all forms and manifestations. 

He also drew attention toward Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s repeated warnings of impending danger due to the “racist ideology” of BJP and RSS.
