— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) September 26, 2016 Swaraj, in a sharp rebuke to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's "tirade" on Kashmir, said those accusing others of rights violations must introspect. She censured Pakistan for the first time at the UNGA for perpetrating the "worst form of state oppression" in Balochistan. Taking a veiled dig at Pakistan, the External Affairs Minister 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".
