India calls Pakistan 'Terroristan' in United Nations speech row

India calls Pakistan 'Terroristan' in United Nations speech row”

India on Friday while exercising its "Right of Reply" at the United Nations General Assembly slammed Pakistan for its policy of sponsoring terrorism.

"In its short history, Pakistan has become geography synonymous with terror", she said.

Relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours have worsened in recent times, mainly over Kashmir.

The OIC, of which Pakistan is a member, routinely passes a resolution on Kashmir calling for the implementation of the United Nations resolution. "The polluter, in this case, is paying the price".

"World opinion in itself is important for every state particularly those aspiring to emerge as powers of any category", commented the researcher.

Husain Haqqani, who had served as Pakistan's envoy to the USA from 2008 to 2011, also said that the speech was directed at his own supporters back home.

She raised alarming questions for Pakistan asking the country how the country is still a safe haven for terrorist groups despite its army vaunted counterterrorism operations and billions of worldwide dollars in terrorism aid. He said, "Pakistan has faced unremitting hostility from its eastern neighbor" since its creation.

Prof Dr Shaista Tabbasum particularly appreciated suggestion forwarded by the Prime Minister for UN's special envoy to settle disputes between the two neighbouring countries. As India is unwilling to resume the peace process with Pakistan, we call on the Security Council to fulfil its obligation to secure the implementation of its own resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir.

"In-fact the message has been adequately communicated that Pakistan firmly believes in policy of non intervention", said the analyst.

He said the people of Kashmir look towards the worldwide community especially members of the UN Security Council to deliver on their pledge to hold a free, fair and impartial plebiscite under the UN's auspices, to enable them to decide their future. "Nor can we endorse any failed strategy that will prolong and intensify the suffering of the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan and other regional countries".

On the Pakistan PM's assertion that his country had fought the war against terror using its own resources, with its economic losses pegged at over $120 billion, she said the country has diverted billions of dollars in global military and development aid towards creating a "dangerous infrastructure of terror" on its own territory.

Dr Shahida was also of the opinion that PM's speech paved fresh avenues for the country as world was reminded to realize series of sacrifices rendered by Pakistan.

"It was definitely a good statement and the message was clear that Pakistan takes very seriously all matters related to its security", she said.

"This is now needed to be reciprocated by other countries through stringent measures against rogue and radical elements in their folds", Dr Wizarat Khan said.
