India trashes Pakistan PM Imran Khan's UNGA speech
New Delhi : One day after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan threatened India with the nuclear war, India responded sharply and said, "Pakistan PM's threat of unleashing nuclear devastation qualifies as brinkmanship not statesmanship."
Exercising its right to reply, India's Vidisha Maitra, First Secretary MEA lambasted Khan over his speech at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) saying, "For someone who was once a cricketer and believed in the gentleman’s game, today’s speech bordered on crudeness of the variety that is reminiscent of the guns of Darra Adam Khel."
Tagging Pakistan as the centre of terrorism, she asked, "Now that PM Imran Khan has invited UN observers to Pakistan to verify that there are no militant organisations in Pakistan the world will hold him to that promise. Can Pakistan PM confirm that it is home to 130 UN designated terrorists and 25 terrorist entities listed by the UN? Will Pakistan acknowledge that it is the only govt in the world that provides pension to an individual listed by the UN in the Al-Qaeda and Daesh sanctions list?"
She also asked Pakistan not to talk about human rights with a bundle of minorities in Islamabad.
“This a country that has shrunk the size of its minority community from 23% in 1947 to 3% today and has subjected Christians,Sikhs, Ahmadiyas, Hindus, Shias, Pashtuns, Sindhis & Balochis to draconian blasphemy laws, systemic persecution, blatant abuse and forced conversions”, said the Indian diplomat.
