India snubs Pakistan at UN ,says empty rhetoric won’t change reality of Jammu and Kashmir

United Nations: Slamming Pakistan for its anti-India agenda over the latter’s comment on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, India’s representative at the United Nations General Assembly asserted that the state is an integral part of the country and “no amount of empty rhetoric by Pakistan will change this reality”.

‘I would like to place on record that J&K is an integral and inevitable part of India. No amount of empty rhetoric from Pakistan will change this reality,” India’s representative, first secretary Sandeep Kumar Bayyapu, said this while exercising the Right to Reply at the United Nations General Assembly.


He said one delegation has “yet again” misused the platform to make an unwarranted reference to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. “I’d like to place on record that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India. No amount of empty rhetoric from Pakistan will change this reality.”


The UN has submitted a report on human rights in the state and has asked Pakistan to stop misusing the anti-terror tactics in the Valley. The report said, “In responding to demonstrations that started in 2016, Indian security forces used excessive force that led to unlawful killings and a very high number of injuries.”

Calling UN report as a  “selective compilation of largely unverified information”, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) said in a statement, “India rejects the report, It is fallacious, tendentious and motivated. We question the intent in bringing such a report.”

The Opposition party Congress attacked the Narendra Modi government over the report of UN human rights violations in Kashmir and said it was a “criminal failure” at the front of foreign policy.

The Congress party has said that the Narendra Modi regime was a “one-trick horse” with no policy either on Kashmir or Pakistan.

“There is no government and no policy regarding Kashmir or Pakistan or even the banks … What we have is a one-trick horse that only knows how to divide the Hindus and Muslims of this country,” senior Congress leader Arun Shourie said.
