India on Saturday slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan references to Kashmir in his United Nations General Assembly virtual speech and stated that Islamabad has an established history of actively supporting terrorists. India also strongly reiterated that the entire union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh “were, are and will always be an integral and inalienable part of India”.
Pakistan, where terrorists enjoy a free pass, is an “arsonist” disguising itself as a “fire-fighter”, and the entire world has suffered because of its policies as the country nurtures terrorists in its backyard, India has said in a blistering retort after Prime Minister Imran Khan raked up the issue of Kashmir in his address to the UN General Assembly. Pakistan is an “arsonist” disguising itself as a “fire-fighter”, and the entire world has suffered because of its policies as the country nurtures terrorists in its backyard, Sneha Dubey, first secretary at UNGA said. “Regrettably, this is not the first time the leader of Pakistan has misused platforms provided by the UN to propagate false and malicious propaganda against my country, and seeking in vain to divert the world’s attention from the sad state of his country where terrorists enjoy free pass while the lives of ordinary people, especially those belonging to the minority communities, are turned upside down. Unlike Pakistan, India is a country with free media and an independent judiciary that keeps a watch and protects our Constitution”, she said.
This came after Imran Khan’s recorded message for played at the United Nations General Assembly, where he mentioned Kashmir 13 times in his speech and attempted to spread lies around the last rites of Hurriyat Leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani. Imran Khan, in his address, had raised the August 2019 decision by India to end Jammu and Kashmir’s special status as well as the death of pro-Pakistan separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
