One of the posters read, “Indian Christians are facing state-sponsored terrorism,” while another one claims that women are treated as slaves in the country.

Several posters of anti-India content, claiming that women and minorities are treated like “slaves” in the country, among other things were seen outside the United Nations building in Switzerland’s Geneva.

A purported video, shared on social media,  shows massive posters in the complex that houses the main UN building, United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC), and other important offices.

The video was taken by an Indian student studying in Geneva.

One of the posters read, “Indian Christians are facing state-sponsored terrorism,” while another one claims that women are treated as slaves in the country.

Several posters focused on Indian Christians and claimed that churches are being burnt in the country.

Another one talks about child marriages, and how India allegedly is in serious violation of child rights.

This comes as India, earlier this week, voiced its concern over the spread of terrorism particularly in regions of Africa and Asia at the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism Ambassadorial-level Quarterly Briefing.

“The threat of terrorism is serious and real. Regrettably, despite best efforts aimed towards transnational cooperation, it continues to spread, particularly in the regions of Africa and Asia,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ruchira Kamboj said.

“India strongly condemns all kinds of terrorist attacks irrespective of religion, belief, culture, race or ethnicity. In the same vein, we also condemn terrorist attacks motivated by Islamophobia, Christianophobia, anti-Semitism, anti-Sikh, anti-Buddhist, anti-Hindu prejudices,” she added.

In recent years, India has contributed more than USD 2 million to the UN Office of Counter Terrorism in support of its global programmes to counter financing of terrorism as well as stemming terrorists’ travels.
