Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s address to the UN General Assembly reportedly saw him engage in mudslinging against India. However, a fiery young Indian diplomat gave a swift clapback by calling Pakistan an “arsonist” disguising itself as a “fire-fighter”.
When Pak PM shared his speech via video due to Covid precautions, he mentioned the 2019 decision of India to abrogate Article 370 and even said. “The worst and most pervasive form of Islamophobia now rules India.” See his full speech here.

Sneha Dubey, First Secretary, Indian mission in UN lashed out at Pakistan and its Prime Minister Imran Khan in response to his speech for allegedly uttering lies against India.
Dubey said that this is not the first time the leader of Pakistan has sought to “propagate false and malicious propaganda against my country, and seeking in vain to divert the world’s attention from the sad state of his country where terrorists enjoy free pass while the lives of ordinary people, especially those belonging to the minority communities, are turned upside down.”

“This is the country which is an arsonist disguising itself as a fire-fighter. Pakistan nurtures terrorists in their backyard in the hope that they will only harm their neighbours. Our region, and in fact the entire world, has suffered because of their policies. On the other hand, they are trying to cover up sectarian violence in their country as acts of terror,” she said.
Her speech soon went viral online and desi junta had a lot to say about it-
