UNITED STATES: Counselor/Legal Adviser Dr. Kajal Bhat emphasized the fight against terrorism as it continues on a global scale. Bhat called Pakistan the biggest “perpetrator” and “supporter” of terrorism.

“Pakistan is the biggest perpetrator and supporter of terrorism and masquerades as its victim and should stop cleansing its own minorities including Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, and Buddhists,” India has said in a strong response slamming Pakistan for again raking up the Kashmir issue at the UN.

In a statement at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Bhat said, “The fight against terrorism has to be unrelenting and across all fronts. All member states must fulfill their obligations enshrined in international counter-terrorism instruments and conventions.”

“Here is the biggest perpetrator and supporter of terrorism masquerading as its victim. We condemn their Pavlovian response wherever the name of India is mentioned and reject all their allegations and insinuations,” Bhat said on Wednesday.

Bhat’s strong response came after Pakistan’s UN envoy Munir Akram raised the issue of Kashmir at the Sixth Committee meeting and made baseless allegations against India in his remarks.

“Jammu and Kashmir is, and will always be a part of India,” she said.

“We call on Pakistan to stop cleansing their own minorities including Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and others,” Bhat said.

“While some states lack the legal-operational frameworks and necessary Combating of Financing of Terrorism (CFT) capacities, others are “clearly guilty of aiding and supporting terrorism by providing financial assistance and safe havens to terrorists,” Bhat said, in a veiled reference to Pakistan.

Bhat said terrorism continues to persist globally, spreading into new areas, with terrorists having significantly enhanced their capabilities by gaining access to new and emerging technologies like drones, virtual currencies, and encrypted communications.

“COVID-19 pandemic has further aggravated the situation. Isolation due to lockdown, distress, and economic uncertainty has made the world more susceptible to radicalizing narratives and violent extremist propaganda,” she said.
