- Eenam Gambhir, the First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to UN gave a befitting response to Pakistan at the UNGA and became a star overnight
- Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and his team of four UN officers were the master mind behind the iconic speech that tore Pakistan apart
As the country is gearing up to give a befitting response to Pakistan for its deadly attack on the army base in Uri, Eenam Gambir, the young Indian diplomat from India demolished the “terrorist country” at the UNGA in just 5 minutes.
Soon after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ranted about human rights violation in Kashmir, Gambhir who is the First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to UN took over the stage and said: "the worst violation of human rights is terrorism."
She further said “What my country and our other neighbours are facing today is Pakistan's long-standing policy of sponsoring terrorism, the consequences of which have spread well beyond our region. India sees in Pakistan "a terrorist state" which channelizes billions of dollars, much of it diverted from international aid to training, financing and supporting terrorist groups as militant proxies against it neighbours."
She termed Sharif’s speech as “a long tirade” and accused the country of sponsoring terrorism. During her impactful speech, she said “"The land of Taxila, one of the greatest learning centres of ancient times, is now host to the Ivy League of terrorism. It attracts aspirants and apprentices from all over the world. The effects of its toxic curriculum are felt across the globe."
This landmark speech which has made Pakistan famous as “ivy league of terrorism” is breaking the internet and has made Gambhir a star overnight. And everyone wants to know who wrote this landmark speech and who chose Gambhir to leave everyone at the 71st session UN General Assembly, breathless with the impactful response.
#EenamGambhir awesome reply to pak pm! Perfect point to point rebuttal. You make us Indians proud.— Gary (@spearbearer369) September 22, 2016
According to a report in Firstpost, Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and his team of four UN officers wrote the 513-word speech which tore Pakistan apart at the UNGA. The report further stated that the main reason behind the speech to break the internet is the way these officers played with words which convey exactly what India feels about Pakistan.
However, the team still hasn’t revealed who came up with the phrase “Ivy league of terrorism.”“We don’t want to go into that but when we did come up with it, we knew we had a winner,” a top official at the UN mission told Firstpost.
When the team was asked about the decision to choose Gambhir for the rebuttal they said that it was decided well before they finished writing the speech that Gambhir will be reading it out at the session.“We wanted to make a few things very clear. Whoever speaks for us speaks for India. There's no question of seniority here. So we chose our youngest officer and anyway, she has been working on this. It's her area,” the official said.
