Recently, raising the Kashmir issue at the UN Security Council Open Debate, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
After External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar noted that cross border terrorism should not be justified adding that Pakistan even hosted Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden, Bhutto lashed out.
“I want to tell India that Osama bin Laden is dead, but the butcher of Gujarat lives and he is the Prime Minister of India,” he said.
While hitting back, India said that the comments were a new low, even for Pakistan. “The Foreign Minister of Pakistan has obviously forgotten this day in 1971, which was a direct result of the genocide unleashed by Pakistani rulers against ethnic Bengalis and Hindus. Unfortunately, Pakistan does not seem to have changed much in the treatment of its minorities. It certainly lacks credentials to cast aspersions at India,” a statement released by the Ministry of External Affairs said.
