India has come down hard on Pakistan at the United Nations, calling the latter country "Terroristan". 

"Pakistan is now Terroristan, with a flourishing industry producing and exporting global terrorism," India said on Friday morning. 

India was exercising its right of reply to answer Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's plea to the United Nations that it appoint a special envoy to Kashmir and intervene in the state. 




"Terroristan is in fact a territory whose contribution to the globalisation of terror is unparalleled," India said. 

"In its short history, Pakistan has become a geography synonymous with terror," India added.

India said, "However much it scales up cross-border terrorism,it will never succeed in undermining India's territorial integrity.

"Pakistan must understand that the state of J&K is and will always remain an integral part of India." 


India added that the "world does not need lessons on democracy and human rights from a country whose own situation is charitably described as a failed state." 




And that "Even as terrorists thrive in Pakistan and roam its streets with impunity, we have heard it lecture about protection of human rights in India." 

"The quest for a land of pure has actually produced 'the land of pure terror'," India said. 

Adding that "it is extraordinary that the state which protected Osama Bin Laden and sheltered Mullah Omar should have the gumption to play victim." 

Pakistan "can only be counselled to abandon a destructive worldview that has caused grief to the entire world," India said. 

"If it could be persuaded to demonstrate commitment to civilisation, order and peace, it may still find some acceptance in (the) comity of nations," it added.
