PPP Chairman and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto is receiving praise on social media for giving a befitting response to India’s terror allegations against Pakistan at a press conference in New York.
According to the details, India’s Minister of Foreign Affairs S. Jaishankar accused Pakistan of perpetuating terrorism and sheltering Osama bin Laden at the UN Security Council and repeated the allegations while addressing the media at a UN stakeout site.
“The question of justifying what the world regards as unacceptable should not even arise. That certainly applies to state sponsorship of cross-border terrorism. Nor can hosting Osama bin Laden and attacking a neighboring Parliament serve as credentials to sermonize before this Council,” S. Jaishankar said.
Responding to the allegations, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari told India that Osama Bin Laden has died but the butcher of Gujarat — Narendra Modi — is still alive and has become the prime minister of India.
“I would like to remind Mr. Jaishankar that Osama bin Laden is dead, but the butcher of Gujarat lives, and he is the prime minister (of India),” said Bilawal Bhutto.
“He (Narendra Modi) was banned from entering this country (the United States). These are the prime minister and foreign minister of RSS, which draws inspiration from Hitler’s SS,” he added.
The video clip of Bilawal Bhutto is making the rounds on social media and the foreign minister is garnering praise for his strong words.

Condemning India’s role in stoking terrorism in Pakistan, the foreign minister said that terrorist elements in Pakistan are getting support from the neighbouring country. Foreign elements are actively trying to create instability in Balochistan, he said.
Bilawal stated that there was irrefutable evidence of Indian involvement in the Johar Town blast in Lahore. He demanded elements responsible for terrorism in Pakistan be brought to book.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan is proud of its achievements in the war against terrorism, as the country has taken concrete steps in connection with the National Action Plan for counterterrorism.
