The Pakistani diplomat Jehanzeb Khan said that India has used terrorism as an instrument of its coercive policies against every one of its neighbors, especially Pakistan and against its own Muslim population particularly in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).
According to media reports, Jehanzeb Khan has stated this in Pakistan’s Right to Reply at the Sixth Committee General Debate during 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
The Pakistani diplomat said that the reign of state terrorism in IIOJ&K has done little to frustrate the indigenous and legitimate struggle of Kashmiris for their inalienable right to self-determination. No amount of extra-judicial killings in fake encounters can ever take away the desire for freedom from the oppressed people of Kashmir, he said.
“India is financing and organizing secret mercenary terrorist organizations based outside our borders to conduct attacks in Pakistan to impede the implementation of the CPEC,” he said.
Jehanzeb Khan said India is pushing the TTP and JUA in the cross-border terrorist attacks against Pakistani military and civilian targets. Over the last decade, thousands of Pakistanis have been killed or injured as a result of these Indian-sponsored terrorist attacks.
He said that the Hindu supremacist organizations of India, especially the fascist RSS, has, for decades, preached the violent suppression of India’s 180 million Muslims.
