pakistan: At UN, India calls Pakistan terror hub, demands action | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: India slammed Pakistan at the UN on Monday for its support to terrorism in the region while asking the international community to call upon the “epicentre of terror state” to take effective, credible, verifiable, and irreversible actions without further delay against terror outfits operating from its territory.
In a statement at an open briefing of the UNSC’s counter-terrorism committee, the government recalled the deaths of 40 Indian security personnel in the Pulwama terror attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, saying terrorist threat posed by state-sponsored terrorism had remained high in the South Asia region.
“The world had witnessed the horrors of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, the 2016 Pathankot terror attack, and the 2019 Pulwama terrorist attack. We all know from where the perpetrators of these attacks came from…,” said the government. It said this “epicentre of terrorism” nurtures terrorist entities with links to more than 150 UN-designated entities and individuals.
The government also said that in South Asia, under the Taliban, Afghanistan once again is at the risk of becoming a safe haven for Al-Qaida, ISIL and a number of other UN-designated terrorist groups, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed.
