Pakistan tries to shame India over Sushma Swaraj attack at UN, ends up making a goof up
United Nations : Trying to hit back at India over Sushma Swaraj's wield attack at UNGC, Pakistan ended up making a goof up with a picture of a girl.
Pakistan’s top envoy at the United Nations waved a photograph of a purported “pellet gun victim” from the Valley. However, the girl in the photograph turned out to be the one who was injured during Gaza attack.
Exercising her right to reply at UNGC, Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, waved a photograph of a girl with multiple injuries on the face and said, “This is the face of Indian democracy.”
The girl has been identified as Rawya abu Jom’a, a 17-year-old from Gaza who suffered shrapnel injuries during an Israeli airstrike.
The photograph was clicked by Heidi Levine, an award-winning photojournalist based in Jerusalem, in July 2014, while covering the Gaza war for The National, and was published as a collection by The Guardian in 2014.
Sushma Swaraj had attacked Pakistan by saying that the country had been exporting terrorism to the world from many years.
