Foreign minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday used her address at the UN General Assembly to accuse Pakistan of terrorism, warning that India will not give up control in Kashmir.
While many described her speech as well-measured and a fitting reply to the neighbouring country, some expressed reservations. Here are some Twitter reactions both for and against her views.
An overwhelming number of tweets from India agreed with Swaraj’s views and praised the minister for a brave speech.
