‘Remember Abbottabad!’ India’s Permanent Representative to UN says, rubbishing Pakistan’s dossier
The dossier came after India briefed envoys of foreign missions and unmasked Pakistan for sending terrorists to launch an attack in Kashmir
A “Dossier of Lies,” said India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations TS Tirumurti as he dismantled Pakistan’s claims of India spreading terrorism in its neighbouring country.
As Pakistan submitted a dossier to the UN accusing India of being involved in acts of terrorism, India dismissed the so-called dossier and reminded it about Osama Bin Laden. Tirumurti said, ‘Remember Abbottabad!’
Taking to Twitter, he said, “The “dossier of lies” presented by Pakistan enjoys zero credibility. Concocting documents and peddling false narratives is not new to Pakistan, host to worlds largest number of UN proscribed terrorists and entities. Remember Abbottabad!”

Concocting documents and peddling false narratives is not new to Pakistan, host to worlds largest number of UN proscribed terrorists and entities.
Remember Abbottabad!@MEAIndia @DrSJaishankar @PMOIndia
Tirumurti made the reference of Abbottabad to remind the international community including Pakistan of Osama Bin Laden who was killed by the American troops in an encounter in 2011. Abbottabad is the city in Pakistan where he was residing.
India has always accused Pakistan of providing a safe haven to terrorists and their trainers and the Abbottabad incident revealed the fact.
India’s swift response came hours after Pakistan gave UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres a dossier which accused India of fuelling terrorism in Pakistan. Pakistan’s UN Ambassador Munir Akram accused India of violating the international law saying that India broke the UN Charter and Security Council resolutions by sponsoring terrorism.
The hurriedly-prepared response came after India briefed envoys of foreign missions and unmasked Pakistan for sending terrorists to launch an attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
India’s former Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin debunked Pakistan’s claims.
Posting a video of crying wolves on Twitter, he wrote, “The Crying Wolf is back.”

The video referred to some past dossiers submitted by Pakistan against India at the UN, indirectly indicating that the international community has never paid any heed to the claims by Pakistan.
Last week, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had described Pakistan as an ‘egregious example of state sponsored cross-border terrorism.’
