Reacting to Pakistan’s allegation of human rights violation in Kashmir, Tharoor warned the neighbouring country to refrain from interfering in the internal matters of India. Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla was also present at the event. Shashi Tharoor on J&K Issue Says ‘India Can’t Talk to Pakistan If They Have Guns in One Hand And Bombs in the Other’.
The Congress MP said, “Pakistan has raised an issue internal to India. Indian delegation rejects outright and strongly condemns such references…Don’t need interference from across the border.” He further added, “It is ironic that Pakistan responsible for inflicting countless cross border terrorist attacks on J&K is trying to masquerade as a champion of international law.”
