Pakistan UN Envoy on Alleged Assassinations: "New India Enters Your Home and Kills You"
Pakistan UN Envoy on Alleged Assassinations:

Pakistan's Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Munir Akram, has raised concerns about what he describes as a significant threat posed by the "new India." He cited reported instances of targeted and extrajudicial assassinations occurring both within Pakistan and abroad.

In a statement referencing a leading US daily, Akram claimed, "The new India comes into your home and kills you." He made these remarks during a speech to the General Assembly on May 2, where he detailed allegations made by Pakistan's foreign minister to the Security Council, the UN secretary general, and the president of the General Assembly. Akram accused India of conducting a campaign of targeted assassinations in Pakistan, extending to political opponents in countries like Canada and the United States.

Akram quoted a report from The Washington Post, attributing a controversial statement to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, allegedly telling his supporters, "Today, even India's enemies know this is Modi. This is the new India. This new India comes into your home and kills you." Akram described this new India as a "dangerous entity" and a "net provider of insecurity."

There have been earlier reports suggesting that the Indian government has conducted targeted killings of individuals within Pakistan as part of a broader strategy to eliminate terrorists in foreign territories. Intelligence sources claim a significant increase in such assassinations in 2023, implicating India in the deaths of about 15 people, most of whom were reportedly shot at close range by unknown gunmen.

Certain Western nations have expressed concerns about what they allege are deliberate assassinations carried out on their soil at the behest of the Indian government. For instance, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused Indian agents of being involved in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a pro-Khalistan leader and designated terrorist by India's National Investigation Agency (NIA), in 2020.

India, however, has dismissed these allegations as "absurd" and "motivated." Nijjar was shot and killed as he left a Gurdwara in Surrey in June last year. A purported video clip of his killing, which reportedly surfaced in March this year, shows Nijjar being shot by armed men, suggesting a contract killing.
