NEW DELHI: Pakistan is a ‘terrorist state’, the ‘Ivy League of terrorism’, a country with a ‘democracy deficit’ that ‘practices terrorism on its own people’ and a country that indulges in a ‘war crime’. This parsed sentence was the essence of India’s brutal smackdown of Pakistan and the speech of its Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in the early hours of Thursday.
India exercised its right of reply on the floor of the UNGA, to respond to what it called the ‘hypocritical sermons’ by Sharif. “The worst violation of human rights is terrorism. When practiced as an instrument of state policy it is a war crime. What my country and our other neighbours are facing today is Pakistan’s long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism, the consequences of which have spread well beyond our region,” said Eenam Gambhir, First Secretary at India’s Permanent Mission to the UN.
