Just when people here at India were expecting from the government to give some concrete response to Pakistan post-Uri attack, Eenam Gambhir, the first secretary of the Permanent Mission of India to the UN grabbed the opportunity to exercise the right to reply to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s statements at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
She not only slammed Pakistan for calling Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani a patriot but also called it a “terrorist state” which keep on funding terrorist activities.
While calling Sharif’s “long tirade” about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir at the UNGA, she called Pakistan a host to the “Ivy League of terrorism”and “global epicenter of terrorism”
“What my country and our other neighbours are facing today is Pakistan’s long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism, the consequences of which have spread well beyond our region,” she said.
She also accused Pakistan of channelizing billions of dollars from international aid, to train, support and finance terrorist groups in its region.
“That terrorist attack is part of a trail of continuous flow of terrorists trained and armed by our neighbour and tasked to carry out terrorist attacks in my country,” she a said while mentioning about Uri attack that claimed 18 Indian lives.
