Pakistan prime sponsor of terror: India hits back after Sharif’s speech

New York/New Delhi, Oct 1 (IANS) India on Thursday hit back at Pakistan terming Kashmir as “oppressed by foreign occupation” at the UN General Assembly, saying that Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif “gets foreign occupation right, occupier wrong. We urge early vacation of Pak occupied Kashmir”.

Sharif equated Kashmir with Palestinian and portrayed it as a religious issue.

Sharif said, “Muslims are suffering across the world: Palestinians and Kashmiris oppressed by foreign occupation”.

In a series of tweets after Sharif’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), where he proposed “peace initiatives” including “de-militarising Kashmir”, Swarup said, “To de-militarise Kashmir is not the answer, to de-terrorise Pakistan is” – in reference to the militants who infiltrate from Pakistan and cause terror acts in the state.

Referring to Sharif saying that his country is a major victim of terrorism, Swarup said Pakistan is the prime sponsor of terrorism.

“Pakistan is not primary victim of terrorism but of its own policies. It is in fact the prime sponsor of terrorism,” he posted.

“Pakistan’s instability arises from its breeding of terrorists. Blaming neighbours is not a solution,” he said.

On Thursday, India is to give a rebuttal to Pakistan’s speech. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will give the reply.
