New York (Web Desk): The United Nations has adopted a Pakistan-sponsored resolution on protection of religious sites, reports Radio Pakistan.

Pakistan’s permanent envoy to the UN Munir Akram, in a tweet, expressed happiness that the UN General Assembly adopted the consensus resolution. The resolution was co-sponsored by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and other OIC countries and adopted by consensus.

The resolution condemns all acts of threats of violence, destruction and damage directed against religious sites that have continued to occur across the world, especially in India.

The resolution also denounces any move to obliterate or forcibly convert any religious sites.

The resolution expresses concerns on the rise of racial and religious intolerance and negative stereotyping of religions and condemns any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that promotes discrimination, hostility or violence.
