Hitting out at Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that, tragically ‘mothership of terroris’ is a country in India’s neighbourhood, on October 16 at BRICS Summit in Goa.
Modi said BRICS must play an active role in setting a direction that supports “our common aspirations and goals”.
Speaking at the welcome meeting on the second day of summit, PM Modi urged the BRICS members to unite in their fight against terrorism that was posing a threat to economic prosperity across the world.
“The growing arc of terrorism today threatens Middle East, West Asia, Europe and South Asia. Its violent footprints put at risk the security of our citizens and undercuts our efforts aimed at economic growth. In our own region, terrorism poses a grave threat to peace, security and development. Tragically its mothership is a country in India’s neighbourhood. Terror modules around the world are linked to this mothership. This country shelters not just terrorists. It nurtures a mindset. A mindset that loudly proclaims that terrorism is justified for political gains. It is a mindset that we strongly condemn. And, against which we as BRICS need to stand and act together. BRICS must speak in one voice against this threat,” PM Modi said.
