‘Delhi is sponsor, financier and abettor of terrorism’: Pakistan hits back at India
UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan on Friday rejected India’s claim at the United Nations (UN) that Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) was its integral part, saying the Himalayan state was an internationally recognised disputed territory.
In a hard-hitting statement made in exercise of her right of reply, Saleem stated India’s use of the canard of terrorism, regurgitating stale arguments were typical of all occupiers.

“New Delhi is involved in at least four different types of terrorism. These include resorting to state terrorism to suppress the people of IIOJK; funding and supporting terrorist organisations like the TTP which conducts numerous cross-border terrorist attacks against Pakistan; financing and organising mercenary terrorist organisations against Pakistan to impede economic growth and prosperity of the region, citing the capture of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav; its supremacist ideology has mainstreamed Islamophobia and bigotry against minorities, particularly Muslims.”
Saleem said India’s violations of human rights in IIOJK were well documented in the two reports of the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights as also by major human rights organisations but Indian authorities failed to respond to their critical reports.
The government of Pakistan, she elaborated, had recently released a comprehensive and well-researched dossier containing the entire range of gross, systematic and widespread violations of human rights being perpetrated by Indian security forces in the occupied territory.
The Pakistani delegate remarked that the Indian delegation would do well to reflect on the deeply troubling trajectory their state is embarked upon, rather than indulging in patent falsehoods about Pakistan.
