New Delhi: In a strongly worded rebuttal, India slammed Pakistan Prime minister Imran Khan for his anti-India speech on the United Nations General Assembly. It additionally highlighted Islamabad’s help for terror and non secular persecution.
Indian Diplomat, Mijito Vinito who had earlier walked out from UNGA corridor throughout Imran Khan’s speech, delivered India’s proper of reply.
Vinito stated, “This is the same country that provides pensions for dreaded and listed terrorists out of State funds and the same country that has the dubious distinction of hosting the largest number of terrorists proscribed by the United Nations.”
He recalled how Imran Khan had referred to terrorist Osama Bin Laden as a “Martyr” in Pakistani Parliament in July and final yr admitted that his nation has about 30,000-40,000 terrorists and have fought in Afghanistan and within the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
On non secular persecution, the Indian Diplomat stated, “This is the country that has systematically cleansed its minorities including Hindus, Christians, Sikhs and others, through the abuse of its blasphemy laws and through forced religious conversions.”
“The only crowning glory that this country has to show to the world for the last 70 years is terrorism, ethnic cleansing, majoritarian fundamentalism, and clandestine nuclear trade,” he stated.
Reminding Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir is an “integral and inalienable part of India”, he stated, “What should rather be on the agenda of the UN is Pakistan’s deep state and its unrelenting political and financial support to terrorist organizations and mercenaries which are a threat to global peace and security.”
Earlier, Indian envoy to UN, TS Tirumurti strongly reacted to Khan’s speech tweeting that it’s “a new diplomatic low”.
