Vaidehi Jahagirdar | News on AIR | New Delhi | Dec 17, 2022:: In response to the media queries regarding the uncivilised remark by Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the Spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, issued a strong-worded statement on Friday lambasting Pakistan. Calling his comments an “uncivilized outburst” the MEA said it seems to be a result of Pakistan’s increasing inability to use terrorists and their proxies.
“These comments are a new low, even for Pakistan. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan has obviously forgotten this day in 1971, which was a direct result of the genocide unleashed by Pakistani rulers against ethnic Bengalis and Hindus. Unfortunately, Pakistan does not seem to have changed much in the treatment of its minorities. It certainly lacks credentials to cast aspersions at India,” the MEA spokesperson said.
Further hitting out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to terrorists, the spokesperson said, “Pakistan is a country that glorifies Osama Bin Laden as a martyr and shelters terrorists like Lakhvi, Hafiz Saeed, Masood Azhar, Sajid Mir, and Dawood Ibrahim.”
“Cities like New York, Mumbai, Pulwama, Pathankot and London are among the many that bear the scars of Pakistan-sponsored, supported and instigated terrorism. This violence has emanated from their Special Terrorist Zones and exported to all parts of the world. “Make in Pakistan” terrorism has to stop,” the Spokesperson added.
In a strongly worded statement, pointing out Pakistan’s indisputable role in sponsoring, harbouring, and actively financing terrorists and terrorist organisations, the MEA lashes out at Pakistan, saying it needs to change its own mindset or remain a pariah.
At the UN, India and Pakistan have been engaged in a war of words. EAM Dr. S. Jaishankar, who was earlier in New York to preside over two signature events on counter-terrorism and reformed multilateralism, has strongly hit back at Pakistan after it raised the Kashmir issue in the UN Security Council. Asserting that those who hosted Osama bin Laden and attacked a neighbouring parliament do not have the credentials to “sermonise” before this council. The heated exchange was later followed up by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister’s highly objectionable comment on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Meanwhile, the statement by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari could not be taken well in India. Taking strong cognizance of the same, Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi and Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Singh Thakur expressed their displeasure over the uncivilised remarks. Slamming Islamabad for incubating terrorism, the minister said, “If a foreign minister of a country is making such a statement, it doesn’t hold him well. This is the country that has been on the FATF’s grey list several times.”
The minister also praised Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, saying the world has already recognised it. She continued, “In times of crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic PM Modi has aided other countries, including Pakistan.
Calling the statement shameful, Union Minister Anurag Singh Thakur in a separate statement said, “The statement of the Foreign Minister of Pakistan was very shameful, and it was an attempt to replicate the way in which the Pakistan Army was defeated by the Indian Army on this day in 1971. Maybe he is still in pain.”
