India showed mirror to Pakistan in IPU, said- do not preach on democracy

India on Sunday showed a mirror to Pakistan at the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), saying that it is ridiculous for a country with a poor track record of democracy to preach on democracy. Advised that Pakistan should close its terrorist factories.

At the 148th IPU meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh used his right of reply to respond to Pakistan, saying, "I reject the absurd comments made by Pakistan against India." India is the biggest democracy in the world. Indian democracy is widely regarded as a model democracy.

The Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha referred to Pakistan's claims regarding Jammu and Kashmir, stating that it is absurd to be preached by a nation with a very bad record of democracy. Better had Pakistan avoided devaluing an institution such as the IPU with such ludicrous allegations and misleading stories. Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, both Union Territories, have been and will continue to be an essential component of India. No amount of propaganda by anyone can deny this fact.

He said that Islamabad should be advised to close its terrorist factories which are carrying out cross-border terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. Harivansh reminded the IPU members that Pakistan has a history of providing shelter and support to terrorists.

He reminded members that terrorist Osama bin Laden was found in Pakistan. Pakistan has a record of giving shelter to one of the terrorists banned by the United Nations Security Council. He expressed hope that Islamabad would learn the right lessons for the well-being of its people. Harivansh is leading the Indian delegation at IPU.
