New York: Exposing Pakistan’s false propaganda at the United Nations, India on Monday slammed the neighbouring country for its nefarious designs in Jammu and Kashmir.

Exercising the right to reply, India’s representative Paulomi Tripathi said, “Permanent representative of Pakistan (Maleeha Lodhi) in her statement sought to divert attention from their role as the hub of global terrorism. She did so by callously holding up a picture if an injured girl. It was the photo of Rawya abu Joma from Palestine.”

“Pakistan mislead Assembly by displaying the picture to spread falsehoods about India, fake picture to push a false narrative. We are constrained to show a photo that reflects real picture of pain inflicted by nefarious designs of Pakistan on India,” she added.

Showing the photo of the young Kashmiri Army officer who was killed by militants, Tripathi said, “We are constrained to show a photo that reflects real picture of pain inflicted by nefarious designs of Pakistan on India. This is a real picture, of Lt Ummer Fayaz, a young officer from J&K. He was brutally tortured and killed by Pakistan-supported terrorists.”

“This is the reality that the permanent representative of Pakistan sought to obfuscate,” she pointed out. In a major goof-up, Lodhi on Sunday had flashed a picture of an injured Gaza girl with no connection to India while alleging that she was a victim of pellet guns in Kashmir.
