Pak using international aid to promote terrorism: India to Human Rights Council
Mounting ante against Pakistan, India has said that the country is a “terrorist state” which has been using billions of dollars from international aid to to train, finance and support terror groups as militant proxies.
India also described Pakistan as the “true epicentre” of global terror.
According to a report in PTI, India stressed that Islamabad’s trust in the methods of terror are so “deep” that it does not hesitate in using them on its own people in Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the tribal areas.
India said, “the latest terrorist attack in Uri, where 18 Indian soldiers lost their life and over 20 injured, only underlines that the infrastructure of terrorism in Pakistan remains active.”
India was responding in its Right of Reply in response to a statement by Pakistan at the 33rd session of the Human Rights Council.
India further added that, “The recovery of GPS, grenades with Pakistani markings, communication matrix sheets and equipments and other stores made in Pakistan, and patterns of infiltration and attacks, is clear evidence of involvement of terror organisations based in Pakistan or territory under its control.”
Elevating alleged Pakistan’s attack in India’s soil, the country also asserted that it awaits “credible action” by Pakistan to bring all those involved in the 2008 Mumbai attack and the Pathankot attack to justice.
“Internationally proscribed terrorist entities and their leaders continue to roam the streets of Pakistan freely and operate with state support; even raising funds openly in flagrant violation of Pakistan’s international obligations,” India said.
The nation has also called upon the Council to urge Pakistan to engage in “honest introspection” and focus its energies on acting against perpetrators of terrorist attacks on neighbours from its own territory.
“Countering terrorism emanating from Pakistan, that has turned out to be the most acute violator of human rights, is the only way to address the risk to peace and stability of the region,” it added.
