Nawaz Sharif Spoke like Supreme Commander of Mujahideen at UNGA: BJP
TV grab of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday demanded that Pakistan be declared a terrorist state, alleging that its Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif spoke like the "supreme commander" of Hizbul Mujahideen and openly campaigned for terrorists at UN General Assembly.

The RSS also attacked Pakistan for committing atrocities in Baluchistan, Sindh and Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir (PoK) and said its misadventure in Kashmir, where it is making Kashmiris kill their own people, will bring destruction to Pakistan.

"Nawaz Sharif at the United Nations yesterday was at his pathetic best. He talked not like the supreme commander of Pakistan, but he talked like the supreme commander of Hizbul Mjahideen.

"It clearly shows that there is no need for any further explanation. Pakistan should straight away be declared a terrorist state," BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said.

He said Sharif was openly campaigning for one of his terror commanders Burhan Wani of Hizbul Mujahideen.

"It is so pathetic to see the Prime Minister of Pakistan campaigning for the cause of UN designated terror organization," he said.

Madhav also said that India has already given a befitting response to Pakistan at the diplomatic level and would respond accordingly to its Uri misadventure at various levels.

RSS leader Indresh Kumar said thousands of people have been killed in Baluchistan, Sindh and Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir and lakhs have been displaced there and all this would prove costly for Pakistan.

Pakistan is trying to get Kashmiris killed by Kashmiris. Nawaz Sharif's tune on Kashmir is not in sync and Pakistan's misadventure in Kashmir will lead to its own destruction," he told PTI.

He said Baluchistan refused to be with Pakistan from the day it became independent and Nawaz Sharif should answer as to why they should not get independence.

"Pakistan is suppressing people there and committing atrocities on them, with more than one lakh killed and 6 to 7 lakh displaced. Sindh is also demanding independence for many years now. Thousands have been killed there and many more thousands held captive and displaced.

"The situation is same in PoK where territories of Nurpur, Muzaffarabad, Gilgit and Baltistan are claiming that they are not with Pakistan. Indian Parliament has passed a resolution to reclaim territories in PoK, then why the delay and hesitation," he asked.

BJP spokesman Nalin Kohli hit out at Sharif saying it is evident from his speech that terror outfits and terrorists are accorded highest priority in Pakistan which is not just a threat to peace in the subcontinent but also the entire humanity.

"Pakistan is a farce of democracy where the perpetrators of terror and terrorists and those who work with terror network clearly get the highest priority. It is most evident in the Pakistani Prime Minister's speech yesterday at the United Nations," he said.

He also said that Pakistan is not just a threat to the subcontinent but the entire humanity.
