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 called it a “terrorist state”. This was backed by a few instances of “war crimes” against neighboring nations.
PM Nawaz Sharif elaborated on Pakistan’s take on the situation in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir.
According to Gambhir if acts of terrorism are practiced as a state policy, they are nothing less than war crimes. Pakistan’s policy of sponsoring terrorism has had consequences beyond the Indian region.
Gambhir also accused Pakistan of channelizing billions of dollars from international aids into terrorist activities such as training and supporting of militant groups. The land of Taxila in Pakistan, once 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, found and killed by the US forces in Abbottabad.
She also said that Pakistan’s deceptive and deceitful restraint and renunciation were 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 neighboring Islamic state, Pakistan has been seen as a thorn in the side of India. The majority of the terrorist activities in the subcontinent region have seen the two nations up against each other. The talks of peace between the countries have more often than not, been futile.
