India, through its First Secretary MEA Vidisha Maitra, to exercise its Right to Reply to Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s anti-India rant at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The Right to Reply means the right of a country to defend itself against criticism at the same venue where it was made.
Prime Minister Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed the 74th session of UNGA yesterday in New York. While PM Modi spoke about peace and harmony and the way forward in combating climate change and terrorism, Pakistan PM Imran Khan continued to whine against India while cooking up a recipe for disaster. Not only did he overstep the time limit allotted to him (he spoke for over 30 minutes against allotted 15-20 minutes), Khan continued his vile anti-India propaganda on abrogation of Article 370.
Khan not only asked the world leaders present in the Assembly to ‘Google’ about RSS founders (because he himself fumbled), he even quoted Congress again in his speech to attack the RSS. “The previous Congress Home Minister gave a statement that in RSS camps, terrorists are being trained,” he told the world leaders.
Khan, who was addressing the Assembly for the first time even spoke of ‘Islamophobia’ other than attacking PM Modi, India and raking up the Kashmir issue.
