India criticised the OIC-IPHRC on Friday for criticising a judge's decision in the terror funding case involving terrorist Yasin Malik, saying the group has tacitly shown support for terrorist operations.

India has urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) not to legitimise terrorism in any way, claiming that the world wants zero tolerance for the threat.

Malik's terrorist acts have been documented and shown in court, according to Ministry of External Affairs spokeswoman Arindam Bagchi.

Mr Bagchi responded to media questions about the OIC-comments IPHRC's on the NIA Court's decision involving Yasin Malik by saying that India finds the comments reprehensible.

"The comments made today by the OIC-IPHRC criticising India for its decision in the Yasin Malik issue are unacceptable to India. The OIC-IPHRC has tacitly voiced support for Yasin Malik's terrorist operations, which have been documented and proven in court. The international community demands zero tolerance for terrorism, and we ask the OIC not to legitimise it in any way "Mr. Bagchi explained.

Yasin Malik, a terrorist from Jammu and Kashmir, was sentenced to life in prison by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) court on Wednesday in a terror funding case.

Malik was sentenced to life in jail and fined ten lakh rupees by the NIA court.

He was twice sentenced to life in prison. The National Institute of Justice has sought the death punishment for the terrorist leader who was found guilty on May 19.

Malik had stated in court that he would not defend the charges brought against him.
