India hit out at Pakistan for its litany of lies at the United Nations after Islamabad’s UN envoy claimed to possess given a press release during a Security Council meeting not hospitable non-Council members and said that the most important sponsor of cross-border terrorism against it now tries to ‘masquerade” itself as a victim of terror.
Calling out Pakistan’s lie that it’s been a target of cross-border terrorism for many years, India said ‘a lie repeated 100 times won’t become truth. the most important sponsor of cross-border terrorism against India now tries to masquerade itself as a victim of terrorism by India,’ India’s Permanent Mission to the UN said on Monday.
The Pakistan Mission falsely claimed that its UN envoy Munir Akram gave a press release at a Security Council debate on Report of the Secretary General on Threats to International Peace and Security posed by Terrorism Actions.
However, the safety Council meeting on threats to international peace and security wasn’t hospitable non-members of the Council. A photograph of the meeting tweeted by the German Mission to the UN showed only envoys of the 15 Security Council members participating within the meeting. Pakistan isn’t a member of the Council.
‘We fail to grasp where exactly did the Permanent Representative of Pakistan make his statement since the safety Council session today wasn’t hospitable non-members of the safety Council. Be that because it may, the five big lies of Pakistan lie exposed,’ India’s Mission to the UN said during a post on Twitter.
On Akram’s claim that Pakistan has decimated Al-Qaeda from the region, India said perhaps the Permanent Representative of Pakistan is ‘not aware that Osama bin Laden was hiding in their own country in plain sight, and it’s the US forces which got him inside Pakistan. Nor have they heard their Prime Minister ask Osama bin Laden as a martyr.’
Giving a robust rebuttal to Pakistan’s lies, New Delhi termed Pakistan’s claim that India has hired terrorists as mercenaries to hit them as ‘laughable’.
‘Coming from a rustic which may be a known sponsor of cross-border terrorism which has made the planet suffer thanks to its actions, this claim is nothing in need of being preposterous!’, India said.
India also said that Pakistan is home to the most important number of terrorists proscribed by the UN and lots of of the sanctioned terrorists and entities still operate with impunity inside Pakistan. Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan himself had admitted at the overall Assembly last year about the presence of 40,000-50,000 terrorists inside Pakistan.
Laying bare another lie by Pakistan about Indian nationals within the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions List of the UN Security Council, India said the Sanctions List is ‘public and therefore the world can see none of those individuals are in it.
The 1267 Committee works on the idea of evidence and not random accusations thrown in to divert their time and a spotlight,’ India said in response to a lie made by Pakistan that it’s submitted names of some Indians to be proscribed under the Sanctions List.
In a strong response to Islamabad raking up the difficulty of Jammu and Kashmir within the remarks it falsely said Akram gave to the Council, India said Pakistan makes ‘ridiculous assertions’ about internal affairs of India.
‘This may be a country whose minority population has dropped drastically from 1947 to what it’s today, which is simply about 3 per cent, which is nothing in need of systemic cleansing. this is often additionally to false allegations about India’s sovereign actions within the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which are for the welfare of the people.’
Pakistan consistently rakes up the difficulty of Jammu and Kashmir and other internal matters of India at various UN fora in its bid to internationalize the difficulty but has repeatedly did not get any support from the broader UN membership for its agenda.
Pakistani nationals remain at leadership levels in terror groups like Al Qaida within the Indian Subcontinent, Islamic State in Iraq and therefore the Levant – Khorasan (ISIL-K) also as Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan, the 26th report of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team concerning ISIL (Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities has shown.
The report had also said that an estimated 6000-6500 Pakistani foreign terrorist fighters are in Afghanistan, most of them with Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan, ‘posing a threat to both countries.’
