  • On 25 September 2021, Sneha Dubey came into the International limelight when she spoke in response to the speech delivered by the Prime Minister of Pakistan at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). She responded to Imran Khan after he raised up the issue of Kashmir at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). [4]Live Mint She said,

    Regrettably, this is not the first time the leader of Pakistan has misused platforms provided by the UN to propagate false and malicious propaganda against my country, and seeking in vain to divert the world’s attention from the sad state of his country where terrorists enjoy free pass while the lives of ordinary people, especially those belonging to the minority communities, are turned upside down.”

    Sneha also blamed Pakistan for nurturing terrorism in its backyard as a result of which the entire world was suffering. She also condemned Pakistan for suppressing its minority communities. While mentioning the districts of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh, Sneha slammed Imran Khan for bringing up the internal matters of India. She said,

    These were, are and will always be an integral and inalienable part of India.”
