Hours after the Pakistani PM brought up the Kashmir issue at the UN, the Indian first secretary in the country’s permanent mission to the UN, Enam Gambhir, called out to Pakistan and said that it is a “terrorist state”. This was backed by a few instances of “war crimes” against neighboring nations.
PM Nawaz Sharif elaborated on his state’s take on the situation in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir.
Gambhir also said that if acts of terrorism are practiced as state policy, they are nothing less than war crimes. The state’s policy of sponsoring terrorism has had consequences beyond the Indian region.
Gambhir also accused Pakistan of channelising billions of dollars from international aids into terrorist activities such as training and supporting of militant groups. The land of Taxila in Pakistan, that was one of the greatest learning centers in the world is now the “Ivy League of terrorism.”
She also insinuated that terrorists and their leaders like Masood Azhar and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi (Mumbai attack mastermind), continue to roam the streets of Pakistan freely. This would not have been possible without the state’s support. This includes granting asylum to someone like Osama Bin Laden, who was found and killed by the US forces in Abbottabad.
She also said that Pakistan’s deceptive and deceitful restraint, renunciation are diabolical in nature. Mentioning how the PM glorified the deceased Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani.
Hinting at a lack of a democracy in the neighboring country, Gambhir also said that the toxic state policies had had their effects all over the world.
The Indian representative also accused the state of supporting extremist groups and suppressing women and minorities through “draconian laws”.
India’s Islamic state neighbor, Pakistan has been seen as a thorn in the side of India. The majority of the terrorist activities in the subcontinent region has seen the two nations up against each other. The talks of peace between the countries have more often than not, been futile.
