Indian PM Narendra Modi launches indirect attack on Pakistan and China in his UN Speech
NEW YORK – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) didn’t directly mention neighboring countries but the target of his address was quite clear.
From terrorism to maritime security, the BJP leader touched upon a range of global issues in his 22-minute in-person speech but didn’t mention the grave situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Modi, who takes a dig at arch-rival neighbor at world forum, said “We need to be alert and ensure that no country tries to take advantage of the delicate situation there, and use it as a tool for its own selfish interests”.
The Indian PM called for a global response against terrorism, however, he didn't express any concern toward rising Islamophobia in his country as Muslims are being tortured amid the BJP’s Hindutva-driven ideology.
He called upon the world leaders to help the women, children, and minorities of Afghanistan despite the fact that atrocities including extrajudicial killings, arbitrary arrests, cases of torture, pellet gun injuries, and rapes are on the rise in the occupied Kashmir.
He also avoided responding to Pakistan’s dossier that mentioned the suspected use of chemical weapons by India against the Kashmiris.
