Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh criticized Pakistan in the Right of Reply against Pakistan during the 148th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) for aiding terrorists and stated that Islamabad ought to be counselled to cease terror factories that persist in carrying out cross-border terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

While speaking at the 148th Assembly of the IPU in Geneva, Harivansh Narayan Singh said, "IPU Members are well aware that Pakistan has an established history of harboring, aiding and actively supporting terrorists. Let me recall that Osama Bin Laden, the face of global terror, was found in Pakistan. The country holds the ignoble record of hosting one of the largest number of terrorists proscribed by the UN Security Council. I trust that Pakistan will draw the correct lessons for the good of its own people."

He also chastised Pakistan for its remarks criticising India, stating that lectures from a country with a "abysmal track record of democracy is laughable." According to Harivansh Narayan Singh, Pakistan shouldn't post such accusations and misleading stories on websites like IPU.

He further added, "I take the floor to reject the preposterous comments made by Pakistan against my country. India is the largest democracy in the world and I am privileged that many consider the Indian democracy a model to be emulated."

He referred to the Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh Union Territories as integral parts of India and stated that no amount of disinformation from outside sources could alter this reality.
