Sushma Swaraj shames Pakistan at UN General Assembly with fiery speech

India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj embarrassed Pakistan during her speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday when she said that while India created IITs, IIMs and AIIMs, Pakistan had produced terror outfits like the Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen and Haqqani Network.

Sushma Swaraj’s attack on Pakistan comes a day after India had called Pakistan as terroristan and as a land of pure terror at the United Nations.

Speaking in Hindi, Sushma Swaraj went ballistic mentioning Pakistan and its role in promoting terrorism across the Indian border. This time around, she did not talk about Balochistan nor the human rights violations in Pakistan unlike her last year’s speech.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded his External Affairs Minister’s speech at the United Nations saying that Sushma Swaraj had made India extremely proud at the world stage. Modi added that she had conveyed a strong message on the perils of terrorism and why there is a need to unite and fight the menace.

In her speech, Sushma Swaraj shamed Pakistan saying that while both the countries became free within hours of each other, why is it that India has gone on to become a reputed IT superpower in the world while its neighbour is talked about only as the leading exporter of terrorism. Sushma Swaraj advised Pakistani politicians to introspect on the same.

The Indian External Affairs Minister ripped through Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi who on Thursday accused India of promoting state-sponsored terrorism, and human rights violation. She said that India was totally engaged in fighting poverty while Pakistan only seems to be engaged in fighting with its neighbour.

Sushma Swaraj stated:  “On Thursday, from this dais, Pakistan’s prime minister wasted rather too much of his speech in making accusations against us. He accused India of state-sponsored terrorism, and of violating human rights.

“Those listening had only one observation: “Look who’s talking!” A country that has been the world’s greatest exporter of havoc, death and inhumanity became a champion of hypocrisy by preaching about humanity from this podium.”
