India is the mother of terrorism in South Asia: Maleeha Lodhi

Pakistan headed towards international isolation Ex Pak envoy

In her address in Hindi to 72nd UN General Assembly session, Swaraj talked of Pakistan, terrorism, economy, demonetisation and other issues but did not mention Kashmir a single time.

India Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj addresses the 72nd Session of the United Nations General assembly at the UN headquarters in NY on September 23, 2017.

"Her (Swaraj's) measured responses in spite of provocations speak volumes of her maturity and tenacity".

Earlier, Eenam Gambhir had said that Pakistan regularly indulged in cross-border terrorism.

She said India is leveling allegations against Pakistan to divert world attention from the brutalities in occupied Kashmir. "Why it is that today India is a recognised IT superpower in the world, and Pakistan is recognised only as the pre-eminent export factory for terror?" "You have produced terrorists.", she said.

"While India made institutes such as IIT, IIM, and AIIMS, Pakistan created terror groups such as LeT, JeM, Hizbul Mujahideen, and the Haqqani Network".

"When Pakistan's PM Abbasi was accusing India of human rights violations, those listening were commenting, "Look who's talking".

In a reference to China India's request to blacklist Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar, Swaraj asked the United Nations how it meant to fight terrorism collectively when it didn't know who the enemy was.

"Pakistan's Prime Minister must answer why his nation spurned this offer", she said.

PM Modi complimented Swaraj for delivering a "strong message" through an "incredible ad insightful" speech and tweeted: "She has made India extremely proud at the world stage".

Abbasi said India is unwilling to resume the peace process with Pakistan and the UN Security Council should fulfill its obligation to secure the implementation of its own resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir. The reality is that Pakistan's politicians remember everything, manipulate memory according to convenience.

He wrote on Twitter, "Incredible speech by EAM @SushmaSwaraj at the @UN!"

"The word "bilateral" was used consciously to remove any confusion or doubt about the fact that the proposed talks would be between our two nations and only between our two nations, without any third-party present". She contrasted India's development, including under previous governments, with Pakistan's descent into a "factory of terrorism" as a lesson for Islamabad's leadership for whom "the wisest thing" would be introspection.
