United Nations: India today slammed Pakistan for using a "fake picture" in the UN General Assembly. A junior most Indian diplomat at the Permanent Mission of India, Paulomi Tripathi, took the floor of the General Assembly to exercise India's right to reply to the blistering attack by Lodhi, who showcased an image of a girl covered in pellet wounds and claimed "This is the face of Indian democracy,". Tripathi said “The Permanent Representative of Pakistan, in her statement, yet again sought to divert attention from Pakistan's role as the hub of global terrorism. She did so by callously holding up a picture of an injured girl.
The picture was taken on 22 July 2014 by an American photographer Heidi Levine. This photograph was published by New York Times on March 24, 2015, under the caption 'Conflict, Courage and Healing in Gaza. In view of this cynical and misleading attempt by Pakistan, we are constrained to show this Assembly, a photograph that reflects the real picture of pain inflicted by the nefarious designs of Pakistan on India” she said showing a picture of Lieutenant Umar Fayaz. "This is a real and not a fake picture of Lt Umar Fayaz. A young officer from the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir. Umar Fayaz was kidnapped at a wedding celebration. He was brutally tortured and killed by Pakistan supported terrorists in May 2017.
