WASHINGTON: Bluntly calling Pakistan a terrorist state and a global epicenter of terrorism, India on Wednesday told the United Nations that Islamabad’s use of terrorism as instrument of state policy is a war crime.
“The worst violation of human rights is terrorism. When practiced as an instrument of state policy it is a war crime,” a junior Indian diplomat tasked with exercising India’s right of reply to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech, in which he had raised the human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir, said.
First Secretary Eenam Gambhir’s response to what she described as Pakistan’s “long tirade” about the situation in J and K, expressed earlier in a speech by the country’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was short, furious, and unprecedented in its intensity and descriptions. It also indicated a new Indian resolve to have Pakistan formally designated a nuclear proliferating terrorist state based on its record and evidence of its nurturing of terror groups.
