Religion Based Violence Against Individuals is Human Rights Violation: UNAMA

The UN marked 22nd August as “International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief”. Thereafter the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) supported it and said that Violence against individuals on the basis of religion or belief is a human rights violation.

There are continuing acts of intolerance and violence based on religion or belief against individuals, including against persons belonging to religious communities and religious minorities around the world.

The number and intensity of such incidents, which are often of a criminal nature and may have international characteristics, are increasing.

UN Secretary-General, António Guterres remarked that, ”On this Day, we reaffirm our unwavering support for the victims of violence based on religion and belief.
