India's young diplomat Sneha Dubey attacked Pakistan PM Imran Khan's comments on Kashmir at the UNGA. 

India gave a spirited reply to Pakistan PM Imran Khan's rant on Kashmir at the UN General Assembly spearheaded by young diplomat Sneha Dubey.

Sneha Dubey who belongs to the 2012 batch of the IFS slammed PM Imran Khan's comments at the UNGA during India's Right of Reply as she stole everyone's heart on social media.

Dubey completed her education from Fergusson College in Pune and did her MPhil & MA in International Studies from Jawaharlal Nehru University. She did her schooling in Margao.

After she was selected in the IFS, Dubey was posted to the ministry of external affairs in New Delhi. She was Under Secretary Latin America and the Caribbean in the MEA from December 2013 to August 2014.

She was later sent to the Indian embassy in Madrid, Spain in 2014 where she was appointed as the third secretary in the embassy. Her mother is a school teacher and her father works in a multinational company.

In her fiery speech, Dubey said Prime Minister Imran Khan's rant on Kashmir was "one more attempt" by Pakistan to "spew falsehoods on the world stage".

"While such statements deserve our collective contempt and sympathy for the mindset of the person who utters falsehood repeatedly, I am taking the floor to set the record straight," Dubey said as she took on Pakistan's Kashmir agenda at the UNGA.

Her sharp reply to PM Imran Khan impressed people on Twitter as people applauded her speech.




Dubey asserted that Pakistan PM Imran Khan had "misused" platforms provided by the UN to "propagate false and malicious propaganda against my country".

She said terrorists enjoyed a "free pass" in Pakistan while bringing up the plight of the minorities. Dubey said the lives of minority communities in Pakistan was "turned upside down".

India's young diplomat frankly put forth her views declaring that the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh "were, are and will always be an integral and inalienable part of India. This includes the areas that are under the illegal occupation of Pakistan. We call upon Pakistan to immediately vacate all areas under its illegal occupation."
