In her hard-hitting speech at the UN General Assembly, Swaraj criticized Pakistan and its leaders and asked the country for a serious retrospection. “India and Pakistan received freedom within hours of each other and India, today is a recognized IT Superpower in the world, whereas Pakistan is recognized only as the pre-eminent export factory of terror.”
Further sharpening her attack on Pakistan Swaraj said, “If Pakistan had spent on its development, what it has spent on developing on terror, both Pakistan and the world would be better off today.”
Countering the Pakistani PM’s attack on India, she said that the Pak PM just wasted too much of his time on making allegations against India.
“A country that has been the world's greatest exporter of havoc, death and inhumanity became a champion of hypocrisy by preaching about humanity from this podium.”
Swaraj who sounded very defensive of the Modi government in her speech also reminded the world that Modi government has always extended a peaceful hand towards Pakistan, which the latter has always refused.
“India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has, from the moment he took his oath of office, offered the hand of peace, and friendship. Pakistan's Prime Minister must answer why his nation spurned this offer.”
The reality is that Pakistan's politicians remember everything, manipulate memory into a convenience. They are masters at forgetting facts that destroy their version.”
“Terrorism is at the top of problems for which the United Nations is searching for solutions. We have been the oldest victims of this terrible and even traumatic terrorism.”
Shortly after the EAM’s power-packed speech, PM Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh applauded Swaraj. In a series of tweets, Modi said, "A strong message was given by Sushma Swaraj ji on the dangers of terrorism and why we have to unite and fight this menace."
The prime minister said Swaraj was insightful in identifying global challenges and strongly reiterated India's commitment to creating a better planet.
"Incredible speech by EAM) Sushma Swaraj at the UN! She has made India extremely proud at the world stage," he said.
Singh congratulated External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for her powerful speech at the UN General Assembly saying she has "exposed" Pakistan's duplicity on terrorism.
