“Empty rhetoric” will not change the reality of Jammu & Kashmir being an integral part of India – India’s reply in UNGA debate

India has slammed Pakistan at the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) General Debate and said that no amount of “empty rhetoric” will change the reality that Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India. This happened after Pakistan’s envoy made a reference to the Kashmir at the debate.

Maleeha Lodhi, the Pakistani Ambassador to the UN made a remark during the General Assembly’s debate on ‘The Responsibility to Protect and the Prevention of Genocide, War Crimes, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity’ that the people of Kashmir are victims of “egregious crimes” such as killings and mass-blinding.

India used the right-to-reply to counter Pakistan’s rhetoric and to put it in its place in the General Body of the U.N.

Sandip Kumar Bayyapu, the first secretary in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN stated that while the general body is having a serious debate for the first time in a decade on an issue of equal importance to every member state. A single delegation has yet again misused the platform to make an unwarranted reference to the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir.

Bayyapu said that cynical attempts by Pakistan to raise Kashmir in the past have failed to find any takers in the UN body. He said –

“I would like to place on record and reiterate that the state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India. No amount of empty rhetoric from Pakistan will change this reality,”

Lodhi in her remarks earlier alleged that the international community is ‘selective’ in its approach when it comes to indignation at some transgressions while they willfully ignore others, this according to her, has quickly turned any norm set by the international community into pretence.
