Pakistan on Thursday told the UN General Assembly that India was pushing terrorist groups – Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA ) – in cross-border terrorist attacks against country’s military and civilian targets.
While addressing in Pakistan's Right to Reply at the Sixth Committee General Debate during the 75th UN Session in New York, Diplomat Jehanzeb Khan said India was financing and organising secret mercenary terrorist organisations based outside the country’s borders to conduct attacks in Pakistan with the objective of impeding the implementation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)
“Over the last decade, thousands of Pakistanis have been killed or injured as a result of these Indian-sponsored terrorist attacks,” he said.
Khan added that India had used terrorism as an instrument of its coercive policies against every one of its neighbours, especially Pakistan and against its own Muslim population particularly in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
“The reign of state terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir has done little to frustrate the indigenous and legitimate struggle of Kashmiris for their inalienable right to self-determination,” Khan added.
No amount of extra-judicial killings in fake encounters can ever take away the desire for freedom from the oppressed people of Kashmir, Khan further asserted.
The Pakistani diplomat added that India's Hindu supremacist organisations, especially the fascist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had preached the violent suppression of 180 million Indian Muslims for decades .
