Pakistan showing continued attachment with terrorism: India

New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) India on Thursday hit back at Pakistan, saying the “glorification” of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani at the UN General Assembly showed Islamabad’s “attachment to terrorism”.

Pakistan is in complete denial of of its complicity in Sunday’s cross-border terror attack on an army base at Uri in Jammu and Kashmir in which 18 Indian soldiers lost their lives, India said after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not mention a word of the incident in his address at the 71st Session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

“Pak PM Sharif at #UNGA in complete denial of Uri terror attack. 19 infiltration attempts stopped at LoC this year. Indigenous??!!,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted soon after Sharif finished on Wednesday what can be an expected speech in a Pakistani prime minister’s speech in any UNGA.

Sharif mentioned Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani, whose killing on July 8 sparked off unrest in the Kashmir Valley leading to the loss of nearly 90 lives, terming him a “young leader” and the symbol of the Kashmiri unrest.

“Pak PM Sharif at #UNGA glorifies Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani in UN’s highest forum. Shows continued Pak attachment to terrorism,” Swarup tweeted.

Retorting to Sharif’s claim that India has been putting unacceptable conditions to Pakistan offer for bilateral dialogue, Swarup said: “PM Sharif at #UNGA says India poses unacceptable conditions to dialogue. India’s only condition is an end to terrorism. This not acceptable?”

On Tuesday, two US lawmakers introduced a bill in the US Congress to declare Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism.

An obviously harried Sharif did not make any mention of Balochistan in which the issue of human rights abuses has been raised by India.
