Geneva [Switzerland], September 18 (ANI): India on Monday launched a scathing attack on Pakistan at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) meet and dubbed it as "the face of international terrorism".

India further asked Pakistan to shutdown terrorists manufacturing factories and bring the perpetrators of terrorism to justice

In a strong reply to Pakistan's statement at the 36th Human Rights Council Sessions, Indian Foreign Service (IFS) Officer Dr. Vishnu Reddy said Pakistan has been the face of international terrorism.

"Even Pakistan Foreign Minister admitted that internationally banned outfits including Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) are operating from within Pakistan. They must shutdown its terrorist manufacturing units and bring the perpetrators of terrorism to justice," Reddy said.

Reddy further apprised that concrete evidence on cross-border support for terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir has been handed over to Pakistan.

The IFS officer reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India and will remain so.

"Pakistan's unsolicited comments pertaining to Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir are factually incorrect and misleading. Let me reiterate that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India and will remain so," Reddy asserted.

"Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) is run by a deep state and has become an epicentre of terrorism. Instead of working with sense of purpose to address issues, Pakistan resorts to shortsighted tactics of diverting attention," he noted.

The Indian diplomat further averred that it's high time for Pakistan to do deep introspection and focus energies on improving human rights situation and dismantling terror infra-in Pakstan and PoK.

"Foremost challenge to the stability in Kashmir and in the region is the scourge of terrorism. Pakistan's malicious attempt to hide interference behind facade of domestic discontent carries no credibility with world," he added. (ANI)
