New Delhi [India], Sept. 23 (ANI): The Congress party said on Friday that Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is for Kashmir rant and glorification of militant Burhan Wani at the UN is a clear sign that he is a puppet in the hands of military establishments and terrorists.

"Whatever the Prime Minister of Pakistan says, he is just a puppet in the hands of the military establishment and terrorists," Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said.

"It is an established fact globally that terrorism is bread ,spread from Pakistan. Factories are manufacturing terrorists exist in Rawalpindi," Vadakkan told ANI.

"These(terrorists) are people who infiltrate civil society, both in India and globally, and create not just terrorism but commit huge human rights issues," he said.

"When we talk about human rights, lets flag terrorism as an important factor," he added.

Vadakkan said India has taken up the issue internationally and should give fitting reply to Pakistani designs.

During his nearly 20-minute speech at the 71st UNGA session on Wednesday, Sharif described the unrest in Kashmir as an "indigenous uprising" and an "intifada" (uprising) and accused India of "brutal suppression" and "gross and systematic violations of human rights". He also referred to militant commander Burhan Wani, whose killing sparked the unrest, as a "young leader murdered by Indian forces".

A bill was introduced in the US House of Representatives earlier this week to designate Pakistan as a state sponsor of terrorism. If enacted, it would cut off all financial aid and sales of military equipment to Pakistan.(ANI)
