New Delhi:

India has rejected the resolution adopted by Pakistan’s National Assembly on Citizenship Amendment Act. The Ministry of External Affairs said that the resolution makes references to matters that are entirely the internal affairs of India. We categorically reject the resolution.

"It is a thinly-veiled attempt by Pakistan to further its false narrative on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. It seeks to provide justification for Pakistan’s unrelenting support for cross-border terrorist activities in India.We're confident that such attempts will fail."

In its resolution, the Pakistan’s National Assembly had criticised the law that it stressed was "against international norms of equality and non-discrimination and international human rights law".

India responded sharply, underlining that it is laughable that the National Assembly of Pakistan, which has passed discriminatory legislation against religious minorities, should point fingers at others. India also suggested that Pakistan "engage in serious self-introspection" rather than falsely accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of.

In response to query on the statement made by Pakistan Prime Minister at the Global Refugee Forum in Geneva, the Official Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again peddled familiar falsehoods at a multilateral platform to advance his narrow political agenda by making gratuitous and unwarranted remarks on matters entirely internal to India."

"It should now be clear to the entire world that this is an established pattern of his habitual and compulsive abuse of global forums. It has been the unfortunate experience of most of Pakistan’s neighbours that actions by that country have had adverse consequences next door."

"Over the past 72 years, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has systematically persecuted all of its minorities, forcing most of them to flee to India. Moreover, Prime Minister Khan wishes the world forgets what his Army did in 1971 to the people of the erstwhile East Pakistan. Pakistan must act to protect and promote the rights of its own minorities and co-religionists."
