India on Saturday responded to Prime Minister Imran Khan's address to the United Nations General Assembly. On behalf of India at the UN, Foreign Ministry Secretary Vidisha Maitra attacked Imran's address. He accused Pakistan of misusing the UN platform, saying that words matter in diplomacy. The use of words such as extermination, homicide, ethnic superiority, gun picks and fighting reflects the medieval mentality. He also said that Imran's speech is inflammatory and full of hate. It is worth mentioning that Pak PM Imran said during his speech in the UN on Friday that 130 crore Muslims around the world will become extremists after seeing the kind of situation in Kashmir. He also said that if I were in Kashmir, I would have picked up a gun. As soon as curfew is removed from Kashmir, blood will flow there. Imran further said that before 9/11 Hindus used to carry out terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka, no charges were made against them.
Pakistan is the only country that gives shelter to terrorists - Vidisha
Vidisha in her reply said that a man who once played the Gentleman's game cricket, gave a hate speech to the world. Pakistan is the only country in the world that shelters terrorists. Will Pakistan accept that it is a refuge for 130 terrorists? Of these, 25 have been declared terrorist by the UN. Can Pak explain why he pensions Al Qaeda and other terrorists. He also said that Imran Khan would accept that Pakistan was the country to defend Osama bin Laden. Vidisha raised the Pak PM to the dock and said that the threat of nuclear attack reflects Imran's instability and not his being a politician.
Imran asks UN observers to visit Pakistan - Vidisha
Vidisha said that the Pak PM has asked the UN Observers to come to Pakistan, so that it can be investigated whether any terrorist organization is active there or not? Will the world remind him of this promise, that all we heard from Imran was his unilateral attitude towards the world. In this, I was talking about everything else, rich vs poor, north vs south, developed country vs developing country and Muslim religion vs other religion.
The number of minorities in Pakistan is decreasing
Vidisha said in her speech that Pakistan can deny that the Financial Action Task Force (BAT) has given her notice that 20 of the 27 parameters have been violated by her? This is a country where the number of minority communities has steadily decreased. Whose number was 23 percent in 1947, it is now 3 percent. These include many communities including Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Shia, Sindhi. Apart from this, Vidisha said that the world should go to Pakistan and see the situation. Pakistan is insisting on terrorism and India on development. Pakistan should not forget the massacre of the 1971 Niazi.
