India slams Pakistan for misusing UNGA platform to justify terrorism

Newyork:28/9/19:India has slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for misusing United Nations General Assembly platform to justify terrorism.

Strongly hitting back at Pakistan Prime Minister’s statement at UN General Assembly in New York, India said, its citizens do not need anyone else to speak on their behalf and least of all those who have built an industry of terrorism from the ideology of hate.

Exercising the right of reply, First Secretary in India’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, Vidisha Maitra said, unfortunately, Pakistan Prime Minister’s speech was a callous portrayal of the world in binary terms.

Ms Maitra said, it is a that fosters divisiveness at the United Nations. She said, rarely has the General Assembly witnessed such misuse, rather the abuse of an opportunity to reflect.

Ms Maitra said, a few questions that Pakistan can respond to, as a precursor to the proposed verification, is that, would Khan deny to the city of New York that he was an open defender of Osama bin Laden? Could Pakistan confirm the fact that it is home to 130 UN-designated terrorists and 25 terrorist entities listed by the UN, as of today?

She further asked, would Pakistan acknowledge that it is the only Government in the world that provides pension to an individual listed by the UN in the Al Qaeda and Da’esh Sanctions list.
