India once again reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will be so in the future

Pakistan has on several occasions shown its proclivity towards state-sponsored terrorism, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said at the 5th World Conference of Speakers of Parliament on Thursday, asking the global community to isolate Pakistan.

“Pakistan PM admitted there are nearly 40,000 militants on its soil. Pakistan’s aggressions against J-K in 1965, 1971, 1999 (Kargil), attack on Mumbai and Parliament, Uri, Pulwama etc. show Pakistan’s state-sponsored policy of terrorism as evident in the inaction against the likes of Hafiz Saeed, Masood Azhar and Ehsanullah Ehsan,” Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said at the conference, reports, Hindustan Times.

Exercising its Right to Reply to a statement by Pakistan, a country whose Prime Minister glorified a dreaded terrorist Osama Bin Laden as a ‘martyr’, the Indian side led by Om Birla also asserted that “Jammu & Kashmir has been and will remain an integral part of India. We call upon Pakistan to end cross-border terrorism. Our overtures should not be taken as a sign of weakness.”

Pakistan has been making every effort to call an Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting to discuss Jammu and Kashmir despite perpetual failure as Saudi Arabia has many times snubbed Pakistan calling it a bilateral matter. The Report also said that the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is also believed to be aligning with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to form a new Islamic axis against India.

India called upon other countries to isolate Pakistan saying that it has proved on several occasions that Pakistan has been a safe haven for terrorists. Lok Sabha Speaker highlighted that even the UN Analytical Support Sanctions Monitoring Team mentions Pakistan as the leading exporter of terror with more than 6,000 nationals currently engaged in terrorism.

The conference was organised by Inter-Parliamentary Union, Geneva and the Parliament of Austria with support of the United Nations.
