Paris: India shut down Pakistan’s juvenile propaganda on Wednesday over the Supreme Court’s historic verdict on Ayodhya land dispute and Kashmir’s transformation into union territories, at the 40th UNESCO General Conference-General Policy Debate.
The Indian official said, ” Mr President, we take this chair to refute Pakistan’s juvenile propaganda to malign India through fabricated lies, full of deceit and deception. We condemn the unwarranted comments made by Pakistan on the judgement made by the Supreme Court of India. The judgement is about the rule of law, equal respect for all faiths, concepts that are alien to Pakistan and its ethos.”
“So while Pakistan’s lack of comprehension is not surprising their pathological compulsion to comment on our internal affairs with the obvious interest of spreading hatred is condemnable. Pakistan’s intervention is interference in India’s internal affairs. It is unacceptable and rejected,” she added.
Pakistan’s Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood expressed his dismay at the Indian Supreme Court’s decision on Babri Mosque which he said was not in line with UNESCO’s values of religious freedom.
The Indian official added, ” Tragically, the reality facing us is that Pakistan is the world’s largest producer and exporter of this evil. Pakistan’s political approaches are rooted in terrorist violence and its global engagement is defined by mainstreaming of terrorism as an instrument of statecraft.”
“The Union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh have always been ours and shall always be an integral part of India and this includes the territory that is currently under the illegal and forcible occupation of Pakistan,” said the Indian official.
