Targeted assassination claim: Pakistan's permanent UN says 'new India' comes into home to 'kill you'

| @indiablooms | 22 May 2024, 04:01 pm

Pakistan's Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations Munir Akram launched an attack on India during the General Assembly meeting this month while terming new India as a 'dangerous entity'.

Munir Akram further suggested India's involvement in the alleged targeted and extra-judicial assassinations in his homeland and elsewhere, reported Hindustan Times.

Quoting a report from a leading US daily, Pakistan's Munir Akram said the “new India comes into your home and kills you”.

Addressing the general assembly on May 2, Munir Akram told Hindustan Times, "Pakistan's foreign minister informed the Security Council, as well as the secretary general and the president of the General Assembly of India's campaign of targeted assassinations in Pakistan. This extra-territorial state terrorism is not limited to Pakistan. It has been extended to targeted killings of political opponents in Canada and attempted in the United States and probably in other countries."

"The Washington Post reported that Prime Minister Modi last week told his cheering supporters, and I quote, 'Today, even India's enemies know this is Modi. This is the new India. This new India comes into your home and kills you'. This new India is a dangerous entity, it is a net provider of insecurity, not security," Pakistan permanent UN representative said.

He made the remark a few days after The Guardian reported that the Indian government assassinated individuals in Pakistan as part of a wider strategy to eliminate terrorists living on foreign soil.

Interviews with intelligence officials in both countries, as well as documents shared by Pakistani investigators, shed new light on how India’s foreign intelligence agency allegedly began to carry out assassinations abroad as part of an emboldened approach to national security after 2019, the British media reported.

Earlier, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau on September 18 alleged “potential” involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Khalistani extremist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey in British Columbia on June 18.

India dismissed the allegation, calling it “absurd” and “motivated.”
