In the 42nd session UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, India exposed Pakistan even as the latter presented a long 115-page dossier alleging atrocity by Indian administration in Jammu and Kashmir after abrogation of Article 370. Speaking during the 'right to answer' session, India's MEA Secretary East Vijay Thakur Singh smashed Pakistan's lies and exposed the country on an international forum even as she did not name the country. Earlier, Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had repeated the same lies about Jammu and Kashmir that Pak has been peddling since a month - after August 5 when India abrogated Article 370 - that provided special status to the state. 

  • Exposing the Pakistani lies, Singh called it 'epicentre of  global terrorism'. "A delegation has given a running commentary with offensive rhetoric of false allegations & concocted charges against my country. World is aware that this narrative comes from epicentre of global terrorism, where ring leaders were sheltered for years," India's statement read.
  • She also stated that this country uses 'terrorism as alternative diplomacy'. "This nation conducts cross-border terrorism as a part of alternative diplomacy", the statement stated.
  • Appealing at the world platform and reaffirming India's stand against terror, Singh in her statement said: "The world in particular India ahs suffered greatly on account state sponsored terrorism. It is time to collectively take decisive and firm action against terror groups who threaten the fundamental human right to life."

Pakistan blurts it out, says 'Indian state Jammu and Kashmir' at UNHRC

Pakistan calls Jammu and Kashmir an Indian state

Outside the UNHRC headquarters, Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi — while lashing out at India was claiming that the situation in Kashmir had returned to normalcy —called Jammu and Kashmir "an Indian state". Qureshi said, "India is trying to give an impression to the world that life has returned to normalcy. If the life has returned to normalcy, then I'll say why don't they allow you, the international media, international organisations, the NGOs, civil society organisations to go into the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and see for themselves what the reality is? They're lying through their teeth, and once the curfew is lifted, the reality comes out, the world will wake up to the catastrophe that is underway right now."

Till date, Pakistan, in all its official communication, has been referring to Jammu and Kashmir as "Indian-administered Kashmir". Qureshi's remark didn't go unnoticed and several Indian users on Twitter trolled and mocked him for "finally admitting" that Jammu and Kashmir was as an Indian state.
