India instigating terrorism to sabotage CPEC, Pakistan tells UN

NEW YORK: Pakistan has said the Indian government was pushing terrorists in cross-border militant attacks as part of its state policy of targeting the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and the Pakistan Army protecting and spearheading work on the game-changer project.

Speaking during the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) debate, Jehanzeb Khan, first secretary at Pakistan’s mission to the UN, said New Delhi was pushing terrorists from proscribed militant outfits including Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its offspring Jamaatul Ahrar (JuA) to attack the military and civilians.

Khan’s statement came in response to Indian assertion that the UN Security Council should not be misused by countries with “retaliatory intent to name innocent civilians as terrorists”

The Indian statement, Times of India reported, was an apparent reference to the blocking of Islamabad’s bid to have two Indians terrorists listed under the UNSC 1267 sanctions committee.

Without naming Pakistan, First Secretary and Legal Adviser in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN Yedla Umasanka said: “India has been and continues to be a victim of terrorism sponsored across our borders. We have had firsthand experience of the cruel link between transnational organised crime and terrorism.”

Khan told the global body the Indian government was “financing and organising secret mercenary terrorist organisations” based outside Pakistan to conduct attacks inside the country to sabotage CPEC, recalling the attacks carried out at the Chinese consulate, Karachi and the Pakistan Stock Exchange.

“The captured Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav had earlier confessed to organising such terrorist activities inside [Pakistan].”

“Over the last decade, thousands of Pakistanis have been killed or injured as a result of these Indian-sponsored terrorist attacks,” he said.

He recalled “Hindu supremacist organisations” in India including the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the parent body of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has, for decades, preached the violent suppression of the country’s Muslim populace.

The diplomat also touched upon Indian atrocities and gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.

He asserted that the “reign of terror” in occupied Kashmir, which has been under a constant communication and social clampdown since Aug 5 last year, “has done little to frustrate the indigenous and legitimate struggle [of the residents] for their inalienable right to self-determination”.

Referring to the reports of extra-judicial killings in the occupied region and youth being picked up with their whereabouts remain unknown, Khan said that “no amount of fake encounters can ever take away the desire for freedom from the oppressed people”.

    Pakistan and terrorism connection is well known. Terrorism incident in any corner of world has Pakistan connection, either direct or indirect. When we live in a glass house we should not throw the stone to others.

    سو چوئے کھا کر بلی چلی حج کرنے. ورلڈ میں ٹیررازم کے ماں پاکستان ہے، فرانس، امریکا، برطانیہ، انڈیا، افغانستان کہیں بھی ٹیررازم ہوتا ہے اس کے پیچھے پاکستان کے لوگوں اور اسٹیبلشمنٹ کا ہاتھ ہوتا ہے.
    جو اٹمی ملک ٹیررازم کی وجہ سے فیٹف میں بلیکلسٹ ہونے کے کگار پر ہو وو دنیا کو بتا را ہے کی یہاں انڈیا کی وجہ سے دہشتگردی ہے. اس دہشتگرد ریاست کے خلاف بلوچ، سندھی، پشتون اپنے حقوق کے لیے لڑ رہے ہیں. یہ دہشتگرد ریاست اور اسٹیبلشمنٹ اپنی ناکامی چھپانی کے لیے دوسروں پر الزام لگا رہے ہیں

    Just last week, 8 Pakistanis were caught in the Paris terrorism incident of stabbing innocents. That’s where Pakistan and Pakistanis are considered. Pakistan jumping up and down and blaming India ..no one in the world will believe. Indians are there everywhere in the world but Indians are not involved in terrorism. On the world other any terrorism incident not just in India but across the world has Pakistanis and Pakistani links to it. Just this last 2 months, riots and terror incidents including in Sweden, Norway, London and Paris all had Pakistanis involved in them. That’s why when Pakistan says stuff in UN, no one not even China listens to it . Silly Pakistan says imaginary stuff in the UN and they become laughing stock in the world.
