Pakistan takes to UN with dossier to hold India accountable as ‘terrorist State’.


Pakistan says it will take a dossier to United Nations, calling upon the international community to hold India accountable for perpetrating terrorism in Pakistan.


STORY: Pakistan on Wednesday (December 14) said it would take a dossier to United Nations calling upon the international community to hold India accountable for perpetrating terrorism in Pakistan.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar at a news conference in Islamabad, said repeated terrorism incidents reflected India’s persistent hostility and the use of terrorist proxies against Pakistan.

Khar referred to the evidence of India’s involvement in the Johar Town blast in Lahore last year, that killed four people and injured 24 others.

“I will call it evidence based information sharing. That’s what it is. I don’t think we seek anything more than that. What we seek is when you keep on giving the same information, it is not the same information. This is different incidents, different roles that they have played at different places, all having one common theme that is terrorism. So, this is just sharing evidence, sharing information on what India has actually been up to,”Khar told reporters.

She mentioned that Pakistan had submitted the Lahore blast-specific dossier with the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and would soon be sharing with the UN Secretary General, which she said was a “clear evidence of India’s planned and perpetrated attack against civilians.

Khar said where perpetrators of terrorism were acting as victims of terrorism, she wished to talk about the economic development of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) rather than the “state-sponsored terrorism”.

“It at least puts the record straight and I think there are many entities, many countries which are fully conversant of it. So, that is what it is,”she said while replying to a question.

She said India fits the definition of a rogue state and mentioned that the country had blocked the listing of four individuals at the UNSC.

She said may it the Samjhota train incident or blatant support to Baloch militants, India’s objective was to undermine the peace and security of Pakistan.

She mentioned that 211 individuals of law enforcement agencies suffered the RAW-sponsored attacks including the attack on Chinese nationals, at PC hotel Gwadar, and Frontier Corps camp in Punjgur.

She hoped India would act responsibly following the legal system.  

“We would hope as claimant of wanting to follow rules processes legal systems. Clearly India would, right? Why would it not? And that is what we should consider from a responsible country.”

Arch-rivals Pakistan and India have fought three wars since 1947 partition from the British rule.
