New Delhi: India castigated Pakistan during the virtual meeting of the United Nations by stating that the country responsible for the terror attacks like 26/11, Pathankot and Pulwama, is delivering a discourse to the international community over terrorism. On the one hand, Pakistan speaks of taking action against Al Qaeda and other terrorist organisations, and on the other hand, Pakistan Prime Minister refers to Osama Bin Laden, the perpetrator of the 9/11 attack in the United States, as a ‘Martyr’. This is the character of this country.
The United Nations has organised the virtual Counter-Terrorism Week. In one of the meetings, which is a part of the program, Mahaveer Singhvi, the Joint Secretary in the foreign department, lashed out at Pakistan. Before this, the Pakistan delegate accused India of being responsible for the terror attack in Karachi, two weeks ago. Singhvi attacked this allegation too.
Singhvi said that Pakistan is continuing with its terror agenda, while the entire world is busy fighting the Coronavirus menace. Pakistan is sending terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir to carry out saboteur activities. Pakistan is also funding these terrorists. It is supplying weapons using drones. At the same time, it is spreading misinformation regarding the Indian laws. In these testing times of Coronavirus pandemic, Pakistan is spending all its energy in making baseless accusations against India and interfering in internal Indian matters.
Pakistan speaks of counter-terrorism actions, and its Prime Minister refers to Laden as a ‘Martyr’ in the parliament. This is dreadful evidence of the Pakistani encouragement to terrorism. India has a clear policy regarding terrorism. Therefore, India wholeheartedly denounces the Karachi attack. Singhvi pointed out to the United Nations that Pakistan does not consider the saboteur activities in Jammu and Kashmir as terrorism.
Pakistan Prime Minister has, in the past, openly accepted that there were 40,000 terrorists in the country. One of the units of the United Nations has reported that there are 6,500 members from the terrorist groups Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, active in Afghanistan. Therefore, Singhvi delivered a tight slap across Pakistan’s face by saying that the country, which is a paradise for the terrorists, should not give a discourse to the international community regarding terrorism.
