Many must have reached out for a dictionary as Congress MP Shashi Tharoor gave his speech lambasting Pakistan for raising the Kashmir issue at the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) assembly in Serbia.

Tharoor, however, was appreciated for nailing Pakistan after he said that it was ironic that a state responsible for "infecting countless" cross-border terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir was trying to masquerade as the "champion of Kashmiris".

Tharoor said Pakistan is the only government in the world that provides a pension to an individual listed by the United Nations in the Al Qaeda sanctions list and it is absurd to hear fulminations about respect for human rights from such a state.

The Indian delegation was headed by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

"The Indian delegation rebutted baseless allegations of the Pakistani delegation about Jammu and Kashmir at two different sessions," the Lok Sabha secretariat said in a statement and also shared videos of Tharoor's remarks.

And hilarious tweets flooded the Internet soon after the videos.

Apparently, Pakistan was trolled on a congratulatory tweet for the team at the event.
