PM Imran Khan Is Being Trolled For Thanking 58 Countries In The UNHRC, Which Only Has 47 Members

By Maryam Malik | 14 Sep, 2019

PM Imran Khan thanked 58 countries in the UNHRC. It only has 47 members.

A United Nations Human Rights Council session was held in Geneva on Thursday in which Imran Khan claimed that 58 countries had joined Pakistan in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) against India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and end Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.

After the session, Pakistani Prime Minister,  Imran Khan, went onto Twitter and posted a tweet

He said, “I commend the 58 countries that joined Pakistan in Human Rights Council on 10 Sept reinforcing demands of int community for India to stop use of force, lift siege, remove other restrictions, respect & protect Kashmiris’ rights & resolve Kashmir dispute through UNSC resolutions.”

And then in another tweet he said

“I welcome the EU’s call in the Human Rights Council for a peaceful solution of the Kashmir dispute in line with UNSC resolutions, int law and bilateral agreements”

But, get this, the UNHRC has only 47 members

Their website says the council is “made of 47 Member States, which are elected by the majority of members of the General Assembly of the United Nations through direct and secret ballot.”


The division of these states are as follows:

African States: 13 seats
Asia-Pacific States: 13 seats,
Latin American and Caribbean States: 8 seats
Western European and other States: 7 seats
Eastern European States: 6 seats


Trolling began as soon as this was discovered and reactions from people came pouring in

Fawad Chaudhry was also dragged in

Some people went off on a tangent
