India exposes Pakistan at UN for sponsoring terrorism: Here’s all you need to know

India and Pakistan are having fresh row over terrorism yet again. In a major development, India hit out at Pakistan for its lies at the United Nations recently after Islamabad UN envoy claimed to have submitted a statement about the issue in a Security Council meeting. Now for your information, unlike India, Pakistan is not a UN Security Council member and hence it had no right to give such a statement. In response, India said that Pakistan is the world’s biggest sponsor of cross-border terrorism and it “tries to masquerade” itself as a victim of terror. So in this article we shall focus on how India exposed Pakistan on the terror front at the UN.

Here are all the details about the fresh Indo-Pak terror row explained in 5 points

1. So what triggered the row?

Recently the Pakistan Mission falsely said that its UN envoy Munir Akram submitted a statement at a Security Council debate on Report of the Secretary General on Threats to International Peace and Security posed by Terrorism Actions. But interestingly the Security Council meeting was not open to the Council’s non-members. Followers of the UN meets failed to understand how Pakistan gave a statement as the session was not open to non-members. India’s Mission to the UN cited this move of Pakistan as a lie in a social media post.

2. How India exposed Pakistan’s lies

A) At the UN, Pakistan claimed that it has eliminated all Al-Qaeda functions from its region. But India said the Permanent Representative of Pakistan is unaware of the fact that Osama bin Laden was taking safe shelter in their country until the US forces found him inside Pakistan. India also reminded the neighbour that the Pak Prime Minister referred to Osama bin Laden as a martyr. New Delhi said Pakistan’s claim that India hired terrorists to attack them was ridiculous.

India told at the UN meet that Pakistan is home to the largest number of terrorists proscribed by the UN and many of them are still operating from inside Pakistan. India reminded that present Pak PM Imran Khan himself had admitted at the General Assembly last year that there were around 50,000 terrorists in their country.

B) India exposed another lie of Pakistan about the names of Indian nationals in the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions List made by the UN Security Council. New Delhi said the Sanctions List is in public domain and anyone can verify its claim.

C) Pakistan in its submission also made statements about Jammu and Kashmir. India said Pakistan makes ridiculous claims about India’s internal affairs. It added that Pakistan’s minority population dropped drastically since 1947 to just 3% today and still the neighbour makes false allegations about India’s sovereign actions in the Valley which are meant for people’s welfare.

D) India gave a detailed estimate of Pakistani nationals remaining at the top leadership of several terror groups such as Al Qaida, Islamic State and Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan among others. India claimed that around 6500 Pakistani foreign terrorist fighters are operating in Afghanistan and most of them are with Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan.

3. The NIA chargesheet on Pulwama attack

India’s brutal attack on Pakistan at the UN took place on a day when NIA filed chargesheet over the Pulwama attack after more than one-and-a-half years since the terror stroke India. Forty CRPF personnel were killed in the Pulwama attack last year. Here what the chargesheet says as per a report:

1. The Pulwama attack plot was made in Pakistan. Jaish terrorists sent their cadres to terrorist training camps of Al-Qaida-Taliban-JeM and Haqqani-JeM in Afghanistan for training in explosives and other tactics.

2. Key accused Muhammad Omar visited Afghanistan in 2016-17 and took training. Omar tresspassed into India in Jammu-Samba Sector in April 2018 and worked as Jaish-e-Mohammad Commander.

3. Omar and his Pakistani compatriots Mohd Kamran, Mohd Ismail Saifullah and Qari Yasir and local associates planned the attack on security forces.
4. The terrorists did a recce of the Jammu-Srinagar highway prior to the attack and arranged gelatin sticks, IED and RDX. They also bought a Maruti Eeco car and purchased 4kg aluminium powder from Amazon.
5. The terrorists were preparing to enter the Samba-Kathua sector and conduct another attack on February 6 but couldn’t do so due to heavy snowfall and closure of the National Highway.

6. The probe also revealed that the Pakistan-based JeM leadership comprising Masood Azhar, Rouf Asgar, and Ammar Alvi Chacha Chota Masood were continuously giving directions and guidance to the Pakistani JeM terrorists, who had infiltrated into India, both before and after the attack.

4. The Dawood factor

Dawood Ibrahim has been a long bone of contention between India and Pakistan. India has always been alleging that Pakistan gives shelter to this notorious Underworld leader since the Mumbai 1993 blasts. Recently, media outlet DNA in a report claimed that  it has now come to light that India’s most wanted terrorist lives in Karachi’s posh area where Pakistan’s top officials along with top army personnel reside. Pakistan’s reply about giving shelter to Dawood has always been very misleading.

 A couple of days ago, Pakistan stepped back on its previous acknowledgement of presence of fugitive terrorist Dawood Ibrahim in their soil. “Dawood was among 88 others who figured in a list, published as a Statutory Regulatory Order (SRO) by Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to escape blacklisting by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). However, a statement issued by Pakistan Foreign ministry brushed aside media reports which claimed that Islamabad had ‘admitted to the presence of certain listed individuals on its territory’ as ‘baseless and misleading.'” the report said.

5. The Indo-Pak history of terrorism

The history of Indo-Pak row over terrorism has been going on for decades. Here we shall highlight a few of the major points. India alleged that the 2008 Mumbai attacks originated in Pakistan and that the attackers were in touch with a Pakistani colonel. The UN called for a ban on Pakistani terror group Jama’at-ud-Da’wah but Pakistan gis yet to enforce the ban. On 5 April 2006, police held six Islamic militants who helped plan bomb blasts in Varanasi. The terrorists were linked to the ISI. Pakistan denied involvement in militant activities in Kashmir but we all know what the reality is about the Valley’s terror front. Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf once said the Pakistani armed forces trained militant groups to fight Indian forces in Kashmir. Despite pressure from the UN to curb terror activities, Pakistan has been unable to do so. Now it’s time to see what the neighbours do as India has exposed all its lies at the global platform of the UN Security Council.
