India showed the mirror to Pakistan in its Right to Reply exercise on Saturday with regards to Pakistan PM Imran Khan's anti-India narrative in his speech at the 74th United Nations General Assembly in New York. Vidisha Maitra, First Secretary MEA delivered India's right of reply early on Saturday. In her address, she exposed Pakistan's lie where PM Imran Khan had said that there were no terrorist organisations in its soil. First Secretary Maitra posed the question to Khan about Pakistan's open support to terrorism in its own land and asked if the country can deny that it is home to hundreds of terrorists. Read the excerpt from her speech below.
"Now that PM Imran Khan has invited UN observers to Pakistan to verify that there are no militant organisations in Pakistan the world will hold him to that promise. Here are a few questions that Pakistan can respond to as a precursor to the proposed
verification. Can Pakistan confirm the fact that it is home to 130 UN-designated terrorists and 25 terrorist entities listed by the UN, as of today? Will Pakistan acknowledge that it is the only Government in the world that provides pension to an individual listed by the UN in the Al Qaeda and Da’esh Sanctions list!
"Can Pakistan explain why here in New York, its premier bank, the Habib Bank had to shut shop after it was fined millions of dollars over terror financing? Will Pakistan deny that the Financial Action Task Force has put the country on notice for its violations of more than 20 of the 27 key parameters? And would Prime Minister Khan deny to the city of New York that he was an open defender of Osama bin Laden?" asked First Secretary Vidisha Maitra.
The Pakistan PM had ranted against India in his speech which had overshot the allotted time of 15-20 minutes at UNGA. Flouting the time limit, Imran Khan spoke for over half an hour despite the red-light blinking, signalling him to end his speech. In his speech, he continued his false anti-India narrative in relation to the integration of Kashmir. The cricketer-turned-politician used the global platform to continue his anti-India rhetoric, terming the RSS and BJP as "fascist" and "Hindu supremacist".
