Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif seemed to be in denial of Uri Attacks in his speech at the UN. India’s First Secretary Eenam Gambhir however did not pull back and remain tight-lipped at it. She gave a fitting reply, exercising India’s Right of Reply with absolutely no ambiguity in her talk about Pakistan supporting state-sponsored terrorism.
She described how Pakistan has no right to preach human rights as the worst violation of human rights when practiced and as an instrument of state policy it is a war crime. She blatantly stated how the world has been at the at the receiving end of Pakistan’s “long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism” and now its not just limited to India and Asia but is also affecting the rest of the world.
She called the attack of 9/11 ‘dastardly’, stating that it led all the way to Abbottabad in Pakistan. She mentioned how Taxila is now host to Ivy League of terrorism and how ironic it was of the PM Nawaz Sharif to preach human rights and on the very other hand support for “self-determination when it has “established itself as the global epicenter of terrorism”.
She further went on to say that Pakistan being a terrorist state has been channelizing billions of dollars to support terrorist groups as militant proxies against it neighbours. She exclaimed that the terrorist entities still roam freely as they have the support of the State. She mentioned that Pakistan has a deficit of democracy and does practice terrorism on its own people, suppressing minorities and women.
We as a democracy are very firmly resolved to protect all citizens from terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. We cannot and will not allow terrorism to prevail.
Eenam concluded saying, “We have heard Pakistan, whose nuclear proliferation record is marked by deception and deceit, talking about restraint, renunciation and peace. Similar false promises it has made to us – the international community – on terrorism. Perhaps renunciation of lies and self-restraint on threats could be a good place for Pakistan to start.”
