New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: India on Saturday made a blistering attack at Pakistan, where terrorists enjoy free pass, calling it a "patron of terrorism and a suppressor of minorities" after its Prime Minister Imran Khan raked up the issue of Jammu and Kashmir in his address at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.

"We keep hearing that Pakistan is a 'victim of terrorism'. This is the country which is an arsonist disguising itself as a fire-fighter. Pakistan nurtures terrorists in their backyard in the hope that they will only harm their neighbours. Our region, and in fact the entire world, has suffered because of their policies. On the other hand, they are trying to cover up sectarian violence in their country as acts of terror," said India while exercising her Right to Reply.

India's reply was given by Sneha Dubey, the country's first secretary to the UN. Shortly after her response at the UN, Dubey was hailed by people across India, who said that the diplomat shut Pakistan's mouth with her "full of facts" speech.
