Citing Bamiyan, India says fight violence against all religions | India News – Times of India

UNITED NATIONS: India has urged the international community to jointly combat violence against all religions, including Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism, as it recalled that the shattering of the iconic Bamiyan Buddha statues in Afghanistan by the Taliban stands as a testimony to what hate against other religions can do.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN ambassador T S Tirumurti said the emergence of contemporary forms of religiophobia, especially anti-Hindu, anti-Buddhist and anti-Sikh phobias, is a matter of serious concern and needs the attention of the UN.
He spoke at a virtual event on Friday on the occasion of the International Day of Human Fraternity organised by the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) in partnership with the Permanent Missions of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates to the UN.
