In response to aggressive remarks made by Pakistani prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at the UN General Assembly on September 21, India calls Pakistan “terroristan”.
While exercising its Right of Reply, India’s First Secretary to the UN, Eenam Gambhir said, “In its short history, Pakistan is a geography synonymous with terror. The quest for a land of pure has actually produced ‘the land of pure terror’. Pakistan is now Terroristan with a flourishing industry producing and exporting global terrorism.”
It started when Pakistan Prime Minister Abbasi, in his first remarks to the UN General Assembly, alleged that alleging that the “struggle of the people in the region is being brutally suppressed by India”.
It didn’t end there. Abbasi had more allegations for India. “Pakistan demands an international investigation into India’s crimes in Kashmir,” he said while demanding “an inquiry Commission” to be sent to Kashmir “to verify the nature and extent of India’s human rights violations, secure the punishment of those responsible and provide justice and relief to the victims”.
Abbasi accused India of indulging in terror activities against Pakistan and warned of a “matching response” if it “ventures across the LoC” or acts upon its “doctrine of limited war against Pakistan.”
In response to which India hit back, saying, “It is extraordinary that the state which protected Osama Bin Laden and sheltered Mullah Omar has the gumption to play the victim”.
“By now, all Pakistan’s neighbours are painfully familiar with these tactics to create a narrative based on distortions, deception and deceit,”
The state of Jammu and Kashmir is and will always remain an integral part of lndia. However much it scales up cross- border terrorism, it will never succeed in undermining India’s territorial integrity,” Gambhir added.
