VHP praises Swaraj for her UNGA address

New Delhi: VHP today praised External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for her speech at the UN General Assembly countering Pakistan and hoped that her “energy and resolve” would be matched by the government’s action.

“Strong and to the point speech in the UN. Fantastic! Sure, the energy and resolve in your speech will be matched in action by the Government,” VHP International Working President Pravin Togadia tweeted.

Swaraj, in a sharp rebuke to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s “tirade” on Kashmir, said those accusing others of rights violations must introspect.

Taking a veiled dig at Pakistan, Swaraj in her address at the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA) session said there are nations “in our midst” where UN designated terrorists roam freely and deliver “their poisonous sermons of hate with impunity”, an apparent reference to Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed.

She also made a strong pitch for isolating such nations who speak the language of terrorism and for whom sheltering terrorists has become “their calling card”.
