New York, October 10: Though India has repeatedly rejected all the shameless claims of Pakistan over Kashmir and slammed drastically, but still Islamabad continues the raga of ‘Indian Valley’ unnecessarily in United Nations. Pakistan raked up Kashmir issue into a General Assembly debate on which India aggressively took the high road refusing to be drawn into a “distraction” from the agenda set for the meeting.
Notably, India on Monday severely criticized Pakistan at the United Nations for an unnecessarily and repeatedly raising the Kashmir issue on such platforms where it has not been part of the agenda, saying the Islamabad has ventured to plough a "lonely furrow contrary to the onward march of history".
India's reply came after Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi who showcased a false picture of an injured Palestinian child claiming she was from Kashmir, said that the decolonization agenda of the UN will remain incomplete without resolution of the long-festering dispute of Jammu and Kashmir.
The minister at the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, Srinivas Prasad said, India firmly rejects the efforts of the delegation of Pakistan to bring issues which have never been on the agenda of this Committee ever in its history. He said India considered it a diversion from the agenda and as a distraction not worthy of a response.
"Even as all those who have taken the floor have focused on issues of Non-Self-Governing Territories, a solitary member State, as usual, has ventured to plough a lonely furrow contrary to the onward march of history," Srinivas Prasad added.
Earlier, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi devoted a significant part of her speech to Kashmir at the committee dealing with decolonization in a debate with no relevance to the topic. She said Kashmir remained a "dispute under any definition", and that there was an "explicit obligation" for the UN and the parties to work to resolve it.
