India Reacts Sharply To Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif’s UNGA Speech

Speaking at the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly, Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday glorified slain Hizbul commander Burhan Wani as a ‘young leader’ seeking to accuse India of not wanting to resolve the dispute between the two nations.

Calling for a United Nations fact-finding team to visit Jammu Kashmir to record “extra-judicial killings” that he claimed have taken place in the region, Sharif said his country supports ‘self-determination’ for the people of Kashmir.

Minutes after Sharif concluded his speech, India rejected Pakistan’s false accusations asking if calling for an end to terrorism as a condition for talks was too much to ask for. India also reiterated its stand that Pakistan is a terror state and that the government in that country was allowing terror organisations to roam freely in its lands.

Here are the responses from India to Nawaz Sharif’s UNGA speech.
