United Nations: Hitting back sharply at Pakistan at the United Nations, New Delhi slammed Islamabad for being “synonymous with terrorism”.
Making use of its right-to-reply, India’s First Secretary to the United Nations, Eenam Gambhir said, “Pakistan has become terroristan”.
Gambhir was responding to Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who earlier in the day accused India of committing “war crimes” and even “sponsoring terrorism.”
“In its short history, Pakistan is a geography synonymous with terror. The quest for a land of pure has actually produced ‘the land of pure terror’. Pakistan is now Terroristan with a flourishing industry producing and exporting global terrorism,” Eenam Gambhir, India’s First Secretary to the UN, said on Thursday.
India caustically described Pakistan as a country whose counter-terrorism policy was to “mainstream and upstream terrorists” by either providing safe havens to terror leaders in its military town or protecting them with political careers – a reference to Osama bin Laden, who was found and killed by US forces in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad, and terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed, who recently talked about floating a political party.
