India has exercised its right to reply after the Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi blamed New Delhi for 2014 Peshawar school attack.
India strongly hit back calling it a preposterous allegation.
Taking on the Pakistan, the Indian diplomat Eenam Gambhir said at the United Nations (UN) that the despicable insinuation made by Pakistan foreign minister dishonours memory of innocent lives lost to terrorists that day.
She added that it is also a desperate attempt to look away from the monster of terror that Pakistan itself created in its quest to destabilise its neighbours and covet their territory.
It need be mentioned that Qureshi, in his UNGA speech, blamed India for the terror attack in Peshawar in 2014 that killed more than 150 children.
India in its reply also reminded the new Pakistan government that both Houses of India’s Parliament had expressed solidarity while paying respects to those killed and that schools all over India had observed two minutes of silence in their memory.
Gambhir also took a dig at Qureshi’s emphasis on a new Pakistan under Imran Khan.
She said that what we heard is a New Pakistan cast in the mold of old.
Gambhir added that, “will Pakistan deny that the UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed enjoys a free run inside Pakistan and spews venom and sets up candidates for electoral offices”.>
