India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj, delivered a scathing response to Pakistan’s remarks on Ram Mandir and CAA during a plenary meeting at the UN General Assembly. Responding to comments made by Pakistan’s Ambassador Munir Akram, Kamboj criticized Pakistan’s stance on issues concerning India, labeling it as “stagnant” and akin to a “broken record”.

“One final point concerns a delegation (and its remarks) that, much like a broken record, remains sadly stagnant while the world progresses,” Kamboj said.

During the meeting, Akram had made references to the consecration of the Ram Mandir and CAA implementation, which grants citizenship to the persecuted religious minorities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who fled their country and have taken refuge in India before 2014. In her response, Kamboj expressed disappointment with Pakistan’s limited and misguided perspective on matters related to India, particularly when discussing issues of global significance.

Pakistan stagnant while world progresses

Kamboj emphasized the need for wisdom, depth, and a global outlook from all UN members, highlighting what she perceived as deficiencies in Pakistan’s approach. She noted that while the world progresses, Pakistan’s stance remains unchanged and lacks the necessary depth and understanding.

She went on to say, “It is unfortunate indeed to witness this delegation’s limited and misguided perspective on matters relating to my country, the more so, when the General Assembly considers a matter that demands wisdom, depth, and a global outlook from the entire membership – perhaps not the forte of this delegation.”

The exchange occurred during the adoption of a resolution on ‘Measures to combat Islamophobia’ at the UNGA, where India, along with several other nations including Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, and the UK, abstained from voting. India put that there has been a considerable rise in the hate crimes against Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis and other non-Abrahamic religions and hence any such resolution should be holistic and not exclusive. The resolution, however, was adopted with 115 nations voting in favour and none against.
