When Home Minister Rajnath Singh said his Cabinet Colleague Sushma Swaraj has exposed Pakistan’s “duplicity” in her speech at the UN General Assembly, he probably had no way of knowing Islamabad would provide a textbook example in less than 24 hours – in truly spectacular fashion.

Earlier 20 Sept 2017, Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, dramatically raised aloft a picture of a woman at the General Assembly. Her face, riddled with wounds, was the face of India, Lodhi said.

This was a resounding lie.

The woman was not a Kashmiri. She was not a victim of pellet fire. She was 17-year-old Rawya, a Palestinian woman who was injured in air strikes in Gaza. In 2014. Two years before unrest broke out in Kashmir after Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces.
