Snippets

Pakistan mistakenly calls itself "Terroristan" at UN General Assembly

27, Sep 2017 By Guest Patrakar

Pakistan in its address to the 72nd UN General Assembly session accused India of war crimes. Young Indian Diplomat Ms. Eenam Gambhir gave a stinging response and called Pakistan a land of pure terror and also gave it a name ‘Terroristan’. Later on Saturday, EAM Sushma Swaraj too slammed Pakistan and called referred to it with the same name ‘Terroristan’.

Responding to the same Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accused India of cross border firing. While addressing UNGA, Pakistan PM mistakenly addressed himself as PM of Terroristan after which all the representatives and delegates bursted into laughter. Mr. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi didn’t realize his mistake and kept going with his pre-written speech.

As if this embarrassment wasn’t enough for Pakistan, Pak envoy Maleeha Lodhi showed a photo of a woman whose face was peppered with pellet gun bullets and said, “This is the face of Indian democracy. Later it was found that the photo was of a Gazan woman with no connection to India.”

Many prominent world leaders were witness to this gaffe by Pakistan. President of America, Donald Trump tweeted “Pakistan has become popular with its new name “Terroristan” and now only the formality of affidavit is left.”

It’s not the first time when Pakistan has embarrassed itself in a global level meet. During BRICS submit in 2015 Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left his speech midway after the caterers opened the food counters in the conference.

UN has reprimanded Pakistan for false accusations. UN in a letter to Pakistan wrote something that Pakistan is yet to decipher as the letter was in English
