In a blistering attack on Pakistan External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today accused Pakistan of promoting terrorism in the region and said that the whole world knows about it. In one of the most aggressive speeches in the UNGA in the past five years, Swaraj tore into Pakistan and said that India has been facing the wrath of terrorism for a long time.
“In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border. Our neighbour’s expertise is not restricted to spawning grounds for terrorism; it is also an expert in trying to mask malevolence with verbal duplicity,” she said. Attacking Pakistan for glorifying terrorism in Kashmir Swaraj said that for Pakistan terrorists are freedom fighters.
