NEW YORK: Pakistan submitted its right of reply to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday in response to Indian remarks on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech.

While exercising her right of reply, the First Secretary of the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Vidisha Maitra, said: “The General Assembly has rarely witnessed such abuse, rather an abuse, an opportunity to think. Words matter in diplomacy. ‘,’ bloodbath ‘,’ racial superiority ‘,’ take the gun ‘and’ fight to the end ‘reflect a medieval mindset, not a 21st century vision. ”

In response, Zulqarnain Chheena, a diplomat with the Pakistani mission, while exercising his right of reply, said Prime Minister Imran had exposed the true cruel face of Indian state terrorism to the world community.

Chheena said India has been committing state terrorism in occupied Jammu and Kashmir for the past thirty years.

He added that the Indian government was continuing the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) program. “Mahatma Gandhi’s killers are now ruining the secular face of India in occupied Kashmir,” he said.

Chheena further stated that Pakistan had arrested Indian spy Kulbushan Yadev who admitted his involvement in various terrorist incidents in Pakistan.

He added that Prime Minister Imran, in his speech to the UNGA, highlighted Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir and on minorities inside India.

Prime Minister Imran, in his speech to the UNGA on Friday, sharply criticized Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party’s ultra-nationalist style of governance.

The prime minister said India had ended the special status of occupied Kashmir, flouting 11 UN Security Council resolutions.

“It is the responsibility of the UN to ensure that Kashmiris obtain their right to self-determination,” Prime Minister Imran said.

“India must lift this inhuman curfew,” Prime Minister Imran said, adding that “those picked up” in the valley should be released by India.

Because of these problems, eight million people locked in the valley are at risk of radicalization, he said.
