India will raise Terror at UN General Assembly: Syed Akbaruddin

Sep 24 : After New Delhi scrapped a proposed meeting of foreign ministers, India’s Ambassador to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin said ‘Terror is a perennial threat and will be addressed in strong terms at multiple forums’ and said Pakistan will be tackled if it raises Kashmir issue at UN General Assembly.

Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj will speak before Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday as part of the UN General Assembly debate..

Akbaruddin said that “if somebody (Pakistan) else would like to be a one-trick pony, it is for them to regurgitate an act which we have handled many times in the past and are confident we will do so again.”

“Terror is a perennial threat and will be addressed in strong terms at multiple forums. This is a goal that we’ve been pursuing since 1996 when India introduced a draft of the CCIT which is the global convention to combat terror. Since then the resonance has only increased,” he told ANI.

India called off the talks on the sidelines of the UNGA accusing Pakistan and its Prime Minister Imran Khan of “evil designs” after three policemen were kidnapped and killed by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.

India is also concerned after Pakistan  released stamps glorifying terrorist Burhan Wani, who was killed by Indian security forces in 2016 in Kashmir.

“There are some (countries) who do not want to, for their own reasons, support such initiatives (to combat terrorism). Increasingly, such countries are being isolated globally. Our hope is that this process of isolation of such countries will continue to be strengthened,” he noted.

He further said that India will articulate its views at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) with broad support from everyone.

“Diplomacy is not aggression or high decibel voice. It is all about articulating your views in a very coherent manner. We are confident that we will articulate our views very coherently with broad support from everyone. It is not about making noises. Noises cannot be a substitute for diplomatic action. Our focus is on diplomatic action,” the Ambassador said.

Akbaruddin said, “All the issues that have resonance on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly are those which impact everybody. So climate action, climate change and environment are on top of the agenda. In addition, as a developing country, we would like development cooperation and sustainable development to be another major area. This also includes digital cooperation. For us, digital is important.”

Priyanka Gandhi

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi took on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath for the death of Hathras rape victim, saying he doesn’t have any moral right to continue as chief minister.

“I was on the phone with the Hathras victim’s father when he was informed that his daughter had passed away. I heard him cry out in despair. He had just been telling me that all he wanted was justice for his child. Last night he was robbed of the chance to take his daughter home for the last time and perform her last rites,” Gandhi said in her first two tweets on the issue on Wednesday.

She also asked Adityanath to resign. “@myogiadityanath RESIGN. Instead of protecting the victim and her family, your government became complicit in depriving her of every single human right, even in death. You have no moral right to continue as Chief Minister,” Gandhi tweeted.

The 19-year-old died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday. The woman was admitted there in a critical condition after being brutally raped by four men in her village in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.

The incident took place on September 14. She was first admitted to JN Medical College and Hospital in Aligarh, but was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after her condition deteriorated where she breathed her last.

The UP government has been facing flak from Opposition parties over the issue. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had said that “no hope” is left from the “insensitive government”.

Reacting to the incident, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati tweeted in Hindi, “The news of the death of the Dalit girl after gangrape in Hathras, UP, is very sad. The government should provide all possible help to the victim’s family and ensure quick punishment to the culprits by prosecuting them in a fast-track court.”

The Congress has questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and women leaders of his party and alleged that Uttar Pradesh under the Yogi Adityanath government has become the country’s “crime capital”.

At a press conference, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate alleged that for eight days no gangrape charges were pressed in the matter and that the UP chief minister’s information advisor and Agra Police kept calling the incident “fake news”.
