New Delhi: India on Tuesday delivered a stinging rebuttal to Pakistan Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Qureshi at the UN human rights body in Geneva, insisting that the statement made by Qureshi was a ‘fabricated narrative from epicentre of global terrorism’.

Vijay Thakur Singh, the Secretary East, who addressed the meet, also said the government’s move on Jammu and Kashmir was an internal matter for India.

“This is a parliamentary decision meant to end discrimination (in Jammu and Kashmir),” she said.

Without naming Pakistan, Ms Singh said, “The world is aware that the fabricated narrative comes from the epicentre of global terrorism, where ringleaders are sheltered for years. This country conducts cross border terrorism as a form of diplomacy.”
