A day after India described Pakistan as “terroristan” and “land of pure terror”, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj launched a withering attack on its western neighbour, saying that while India created IITs, IIMs and AIIMS, Pakistan had produced Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Haqqani Network and Hizbul Mujahideen.

Swaraj put terrorism emanating from Pakistan at the front and centre of her speech to the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday — it overshadowed all other themes, and occupied the major portion of her speech. She mentioned Pakistan 15 times, and terror or terrorism 17 times. Last year, she had mentioned Pakistan six times, and terror or terrorism 18 times.

Unlike last year, she made no mention of Balochistan and Pakistani human rights violations. “We (India) produced scholars, doctors, engineers. What have you produced? You have produced terrorists,” Swaraj said in her speech in Hindi. “Doctors save people from death; terrorists send them to death… We produced IITs, IIMs, AIIMS and space reserach centre, and you produced Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Haqqani Network and Hizbul Mujahideen.”

Minutes after her speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted: “Incredible speech by EAM @SushmaSwaraj at the @UN! She has made India extremely proud at the world stage. and “A strong message was given by @SushmaSwaraj Ji on the dangers of terrorism and why we have to unite and fight this menace.
