Senator Sehar Kamran (TI) Terms Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s Speech at the United Nations General Assembly a Pack of Lies
27th September, 2016: President Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS), Senator Sehar Kamran (TI) has termed the Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s address to the United Nations General Assembly as a pack of lies. She said Indian Minister’s referral of Baluchistan in her speech is again an admission of the continued Indian interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs which is a clear violation of the international law and the United Nations Charter.
Senator Kamran said India has a habit of bullying its neighbor states as history shows how the country has had disputes with all of its seven neighbouring states barring none. She said blaming Pakistan even before the attackers of Uri attack were apprehended, shows the typical Indian mindset of blaming others for their own weaknesses as it a convenient way of pacifying their domestic voters.
Senator Sehar Kamran said even though Swaraj completely glossed over Indian atrocities in Indian held Kashmir but the world bears witness of how Indian Security Forces have unleashed horror and mayhem in the valley by killing more than 100 Kashmiri people, injuring thousands and has left more than 150 blinded by the use of deadly gun pellets since July 8th. She said telecommunication services have been completely suspended, and media has been denied any access in the valley.
Senator Kamran called for an independent investigations of extra judicial killings by Indian forces of the Kashmiri people. Pakistan will continue to support the Kashmiri people on moral grounds, she added.
Senator Sehar Kamran said instead of trying to resolve these issues bilaterally, India is hell bent on creating another one: the water issue. She said by suspending Indus Water Commission talks India has increased the stakes considerably high which this region perhaps cannot sustain.
