On Friday, Pakistan lashed out at India for accusing it of harbouring Osama bin Laden. Pakistan’s foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari tells the media at the United Nations: “Osama bin Laden is dead but the Butcher of Gujarat lives. And, he is the Prime Minister of India.”
Issuing a long statement condemning the “uncivilised” remarks, India responded sharply to this. Arindam Bagchi, Ministry of External affairs spokesman said: “These comments are a new low, even for Pakistan.”
Terrorist attacks across the world bear the fingerprints of Pakistan
Bagchi recalled the genocide in East Pakistan that led to the creation of Bangladesh in 1971. And, also the terrorist attacks in cities across the world that bear the fingerprints of Pakistan-sponsored terrorist groups. And they said no other country had as many UN-designated terrorists as Pakistan. also read:-Noah Centineo starring ‘The Recruit’ is an atypical CIA drama which will turn your eyes here
On Thursday, at a UN news conference, Bilawal was asked about Indian foreign minister S. Jaishankar bringing up bin Laden. Whose killing by US special forces in a stealth operation not far from Pakistan’s premier military training academy put Islamabad’s deep state on the back foot.
Bilawal spoke way too much for India
Bilawal said: “He was banned from entering this country till he became Prime Minister.” This was in reference to a US visa ban on Narendra Modi, imposed after the 2002 riots in Gujarat and lifted once the BJP won the 2014 elections under him. Adding, “This is the Prime Minister of the RSS and the foreign minister of the RSS. What is the RSS? The RSS draws its inspiration from Hitler’s SS.”
Then, Bilawal brought up Jaishankar’s unveiling of a statue of Mahatma Gandhi at the UN in New York. He said, “If the foreign minister of India was being honest, then he knows as well as I that the RSS does not believe in Gandhi, in the ideology of Gandhi, in the manifesto of Gandhi. They do not see this individual as the founder of India. They hero-worship the terrorist that assassinated Gandhi” . Bilawal also flagged the rapist-murderers in the Bilkis Bano case ahead of the Gujarat elections.
BJP called Bilawal’s remarks “shameful and derogatory”
Pakistan lacked the credentials to cast aspersions on India, says Bagchi. Bilawal’s busted out and said, “seems to be a result of Pakistan’s increasing inability to use terrorists and their proxies” as his country’s role in sponsoring terrorists “remains under the scanner”.
In response, India said New York, Mumbai, Pulwama, Pathankot and London were among the many cities that bore the scars of terrorism sponsored, supported and instigated by Pakistan.The BJP called Bilawal’s remarks “shameful and derogatory” and on Saturday, it would hold protests .
