The special rapporteurs of UN human rights experts Irene khan and Mary Lawlor called upon Indian authorities to investigate 'relentless misogynistic and sectarian attacks on Indian Journalist, Rana Ayyub online over social media platforms.
In Response, India's permanent mission in Geneva tweeted, "allegations of so-called judicial harassment are 'baseless and unwarranted'. India upholds the rule of law, but is equally clear that no one is above the law. We expect the SRs (Special Rapporteur) to be objectively & accurately informed. Advancing a misleading narrative only tarnishes UNGeneva's reputation".
