The goof up at the United Nations by Pakistan Permanent Representative to United Nations Maleeha Lodhi has made it a laughing stock more so amongst the diplomatic community than whole wide world. Pakistan has made a fool out of itself and one should laugh at it, said former diplomat Nagendra Nath Jha, while discussing about Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi’s showing pictures of Palestinian victims and trying to pass them off as ‘evidence’ of atrocities on Kashmiris.
“Pakistan has made a fool of itself and to all the rubbish they have said against Prime Minister Modi and India, I hope our representatives at the UN give a good answer to them in due course,” Jha told ANI.
He also mentioned that Pakistani diplomat Maleeha Lodhi’s was very “keen” to make a statement against Minister of External Affairs Susham Swaraj, who had given a convincing and successful speech at the UN, adding, “So, whatever information Lodhi could get her hands on she tried to put it as Indian atrocity.”
Jha also said that nobody believes Pakistan, coming from the fact that they hid Osama Bin Laden and kept denying about it.
“Pakistan tries to keep fooling the world and gets caught every time,” Jha said.
Speaking on the same note, former diplomat Ashok Sajjanhar said, “This is a travesty of facts and I think the whole world recognises that India, who has been a victim of terrorism, has zero tolerance towards it.”
He added that it is Pakistan, who organise terrorist attacks, not only against India, but also against Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
“Back in SAARC, other countries rose with us on the issue of terrorism. In heart of Asia conference last year, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani made it very clear that it is Pakistan that is fermenting terrorism,” Sajjanhar further said.
This comes after Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi on Sunday in her right to reply to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s speech at the UN, showed pictures of the Palestinian victims and tried to pass them off as ‘evidence’ of atrocities on Kashmiris.
