On Saturday, September 29, 2018 External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, in her speech at United Nations General Assembly, said that Pakistan is expert in trying to mask malevolence with verbal duplicity while it harbor the terrorists and provide them the safe heavens.
Swaraj in her speech at UNGA mentioned about the horrific terror incidents of 9/11 in New York and 26/11 in Mumbai and said before UNGA that the masterminds of terror attacks were living in Pakistan.
Swaraj said in her speech, “I had described terrorism as the second existential threat to humanity. We imagined that the arrival of the 21st Century would bring with it an age of common good, defined by cooperation in the quest for peace and prosperity. But here in New York, the horrific tragedy of 9/11, and in Mumbai the catastrophe of 26/11 became the nightmares that shattered our dreams”.
She added, “In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border to the west. Our neighbour’s expertise is not restricted to spawning grounds for terrorism; it is also an expert in trying to mask malevolence with verbal duplicity”.
Sushma Swaraj presented the facts that Osama Bin Laden was killed by US Navy SEALs team in Pakistan and the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks still roams the streets of Pakistan with impunity and blamed Pakistan of harboring the terrorists.
Swaraj said, “The most startling evidence of this duplicity was the fact that Osama Bin Laden, the architect and ideologue of 9/11 was given safe haven in Pakistan. America had declared Osama bin Laden it’s most dangerous enemy, and launched an exhaustive, worldwide search to bring him to justice”.

She said, “Eventually, America’s intelligence services discovered the truth of this hypocrisy, and its special forces delivered justice”. She added, “The killers of 9/11 met their fate; but the mastermind of 26/11 Hafiz Saeed still roams the streets of Pakistan with impunity”.
Swaraj praised for putting Pakistan on FATF (Financial Action Task Force) list and said that the world is no longer ready to believe Islamabad.
