New Delhi : In a strong rebuttal to Pakistan’s allegation, India called Pakistan a ‘terrorist state’ and also accused it of carrying out ‘war crimes’ against Indians by sponsoring terrorism.

Indian’s reaction came hours after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif racked up Kashmir issue at the UN General Assembly session.

First secretary in the permanent mission of India to UN Eenam Gambhir said, “What India other neighbours are facing today is Pakistan's long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism,"

Gambhir further said, “Pakistan is a terrorist state which channelizes billions of dollars, to train finance and support terrorist groups.”

India strongly slammed Nawaz Sharif for glorifying Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani, who was killed by the Indian forces.

"We cannot and will not allow terrorism to prevail," Gambhir further said.

Gambhir also reminded the UN that the trail of the most horrifying terror attack of 9/11 led all the way to Pakistan, where al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden had been hiding for years and was killed by US forces.
