Geneva [Switzerland], Sept 21 (ANI): British activist Tommy Robinson has accused Pakistan of harbouring and supporting terrorism and said that the latter tries to play two parts-be the friend and support terrorism.

Talking to ANI in Geneva, Tommy said, "Pakistan always tries to play two parts -be the nice friend and at the same time supporting terrorism; it creates terrorism. Its a complete failed state in my views. It is one of the worst countries in the world. Look at what it does in India. The majority of terrorist attacks in my country (Britain) are perpetrated by Pakistanis".

He is a writer for The Rebel Media and the author of an autobiography, 'Enemy of the State', and Mohammed's 'Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam'.

Tommy said, "Pakistan, who has harboured terrorism, created and supported it, should be sanctioned. It should be treated as an enemy".

He joined a protest by Baloch Republican Party (BRP) during the 36th Session of Human Rights Council in Geneva. Speaking about the deteriorating human rights situation in Balochistan, he said, "I have been shocked. When I see and read about what's happening there, I feel shocked. I am shocked that no other country knows about Balochistan".

"No one knows the oppression these people are facing. In our country, people know the demand for free Palestine, but look at what's happening with these (Baloch) people. Look at their families who are being killed and kidnapped on daily basis- not by extremists, not by radical groups, but by the Pakistani military. The military is committing war crimes on these people. They are raping them, steeling their goods. We have this human rights platform and these people are being ignored. Pakistan sits on table out there (United Nations) and they are abducting, raping and terrorising them," he added.

The U.S. President Donald Trump, who recently accused Pakistan of providing save haven to terrorists, has said in his maiden speech at the UN general assembly that it is time to expose and hold responsible those countries, who support and finance terror groups like al Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Taliban and others that slaughter innocent people.
