“Host And Patron” Of 132 UN-Designated Terrorists: India shows mirror to Pakistan

Published

New York, Sep 29 : Indian diplomat Eenam Gambhir exercised India’s Right of Reply and rejected allegations made by Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi during his UN General Assembly address and said it was “despicable” and “preposterous allegation” as “new Pakistan is cast in the mould of the old”.

“This morning my delegation came to this august assembly to listen attentively to the new Foreign Min of Pakistan outline the vision of a new Pakistan. What we heard is a new Pakistan cast in the mould of old,”Eenam Gambhir, India’s First Secy in Permanent Mission of India to UN said.

Dismissing Pakistan’s claim of fighting terrorism, Gambhir said, “Can Pakistan deny that it’s the host and patron of 132 of the UN designated terrorists, 22 terrorist entities sanctioned under the 1267 and 1988 UN Security Council Sanctions Regime as of today?”

Citing Qureshi’s statement, where he alleged India’s involvement in the 2014 Peshawar school attack, the Indian diplomat said, “Among the most outrageous was the preposterous allegation relating to the horrific terror attack on a Peshawar school four years ago. Let me recollect for the new government of Pakistan the outpouring of sorrow and pain in India that followed the massacre of innocent children in 2014. Both houses of India’s Parliament had expressed solidarity while paying respect to the memory of those killed. Schools all over India had observed two minutes of silence in their memory.”

Exercising the Right to Reply at the UNGA, Gambhir said, “The despicable insinuation made by Pak Foreign Min dishonours memory of innocent lives lost to terrorists that day. It’s a desperate attempt to look away from monster of terror that Pak itself created in its quest to destabilise its neighbours and covert their territory.”

“Will Pakistan deny that UN designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed enjoys a free run inside Pakistan, spews venom & sets up candidates for electoral offices?,” She said.

“New Foreign Min of Pakistan chose to term the gruesome killing of our security personnel by Pak sponsored terrorists as flimsy grounds. While it may not be the case for Pakistan, for India every loss of life counts. Hence our belief that talks&terror can’t go together,”Gambhir said.

Taking a jibe at Pakistan’s newly-found appreciation of upholding ‘human rights’, the Indian diplomat quoted the example of the appointment and removal of Princeton economist Professor Atif Mian from the Economic Advisory Council on grounds that he belongs to a ‘minority’.

“Before preaching to the world, championing of human rights should begin at home,” Gambhir said.

The Indian diplomat also came down heavily on Qureshi for his comment where he said New Delhi cancelled the foreign minister-level meeting between India and Pakistan on “flimsy grounds”.

“Pakistan must demonstrate that it has moved beyond a narrative of distortion, deception and deceit,” Gambhir added, snubbing Pakistan’s fake claims and allegations.

TikTok WeChat

NEW YORK : A United States judge in California declined to block the Commerce Department order issued on Friday that will prohibit U.S. app stores from offering Tencent Holding’s WeChat for download starting late Sunday.

Judge Laurel Beeler said the request for a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit brought by U.S. WeChat users appeared moot after the Commerce order but said in an written order “the court is available today for a hearing on any emergency motions.” A lawyer for the WeChat users did not immediately comment.

Beeler issued a follow-up order that said lawyers for the WeChat users “will file something by 10:45 a.m. (PDT) about why the motion is not moot.” She tentatively sets a Zoom hearing for 11:00 a.m. (PDT)(1700 GMT).

The Justice Department said Friday in a court filing that Beeler should reject the request, saying President Donald Trump “has invoked his emergency powers to address (the WeChat) threat, and plaintiffs have articulated no legal basis for the Court to take the extraordinary step of enjoining his exercise of that authority.”
