India on February 14, slammed Pakistan at the United Nations calling the country “Epicentre of terror state”, asking the international community to call upon Pakistan to take effective, credible, verifiable, and irreversible actions without further delay against terror outfits operating from its territory.

At an open briefing of the UNSC’s counter-terrorism committee, the Indian Government in a statement recalled the unfortunate deaths of 40 Indian security personnel in the Pulwama terror attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed on February 14, 2019. The statement read,

“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…”.

The Indian Government further drew attention to the 2008 Mumbai terror attack and the 2016 Pathankot terror attack and said that it is regretful that the victims of these dastardly attacks are yet to get justice, and the perpetrators, facilitators, and financiers of these attacks continue to walk free, still enjoying State support and hospitality.

Showing its concern over the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, the Government said that 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-Muhammed.
