Would PM Imran Khan deny that he was an open defender of Osama bin Laden, asks India at UN

Updated 28 Sep 2019 09:33 AM

Hours after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan adressed United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and raised the issue of Kashmir in his speech, first secretary to MEA Vidisha Maitra on Saturday exercised India's right to reply to Khan's speech and hit back at Pakistan PM saying his has no locus standi on lecturing India on terrorism and human rights.
Maitra said that Khan's threat of unleashing nuclear devastation qualifies as brinksmanship and not statesmanship. "Every word spoken from the podium of this august Assembly, it is believed, carries the weight of history. Unfortunately, what we heard today from Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan was a callous portrayal of the world in binary terms. Us vs Them; Rich vs Poor; North vs South; Developed Vs Developing; Muslims vs Others. A script that fosters divisiveness at the United Nations. Attempts to sharpen differences and stir up hatred, are simply put - “hate speech”," Maitra said.
