Pakistan is 'Ivy League of terrorism': India

Pakistan is 'Ivy League of terrorism': India

Sep 22, 2016 - 18:19

 WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): Indian has alleged Pakistaninfo-icon being a terrorist state which channelised billions of dollars, much of it diverted from international aid, to training, financing and supporting terrorist groups as militant proxies against it neighbors.

Joining Afghanistaninfo-icon in launching a scathing attack on Islamabad, India said Pakistan was an Ivy League of Terrorism. The tough Indian stand came in response to the allegations made by the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz in his address to the UN General Assembly in which he described a terrorist killed in Kashmir as a hero.

“Today we have heard support by the Prime Minister of Pakistan for a self-acknowledged commander of a known terrorist organization Hizbul Mujahideeninfo-icon,” said Eenam Gambhir, first secretary at the Permanent Mission of India at the UN.

Gambhir delivered her remarks using the right to response after Sharif’s speech.

“Pakistan is a country with a democracy deficit. In fact it practices terrorism on its own people. It extends support to extremist groups, it suppresses minorities and womeninfo-icon and denies basic human rights including through draconian laws,” she said.

Noting that the worst violation of human rights is terrorism, Gambhir said when practiced as an instrument of state policy it is a war crime. “What my country and our other neighbours are facing today is Pakistan’s long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism, the consequences of which have spread well beyond our region,” she said.

Only last week, the international community honored the memory of thousands of innocent victims from around the worldinfo-icon, who lost their lives not far from here in New York fifteen years ago in a most horrifying terror attack, she noted. “The world has not yet forgotten that the trail of that dastardly attack led all the way to Abbottabad in Pakistan,” she said. 

“The land of Taxila, one of the greatest learning centres of ancient times, is now host to the Ivy League of terrorism. It attracts aspirants and apprentices from all over the world. The effect of its toxic curriculum are felt across the globe,” Gambhir said.

“It is ironical therefore that we have seen today the preaching of human rights and ostensible support for self-determination by a country which has established itself as the global epicentre of terrorism,” she alleged.

“What we see in Pakistan, Mr. President, is a terrorist state, which channelizes billions of dollars, much of it diverted from international aid, to training, financing and supporting terrorist groups as militant proxies against it neighbours,” Gambhir alleged.
