UNITED NATIONS: Exercising Pakistan’s right of reply to Indian Foreign Minister’s statement in United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday Permanent Representative at UN Maleeha Lodhi termed India as ‘mother of terrorism’ in South Asia.
Addressing the 72nd session of UNGA, Maleeha Lodhi responded to the terrorism allegations leveled by Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj at the session in New York.
She said India is using terrorism as a state policy and that Indian arrested spy Kulbhushan Jadhav has confessed of committing terror activities in Pakistan.
Maleeha Lodhi continued Kashmir is not the part of India, but illegally occupied by it. She said India’s refusal to implement the UN resolutions on Kashmir dispute is a deception and aggression. She said India is leveling accusations against Pakistan to divert world attention from the brutalities in occupied Kashmir.
Ambassador Lodhi said the international community will have to stop India from ceasefire violations on the Line of Control, adding Pakistan wants resolution of all outstanding issues through talks. India will have to give up the policy of terrorism, she asserted.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself was involved in killing of Muslims in Gujrat, and hands of several leaders of the ruling party in India are stained with blood of innocent people. Even minorities in India are not safe, she stated.
