In an indirect reference to Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday highlighted the terror agreement between India and the UAE and said that those who indulge in terrorism must be punished.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was addressing the Indian diaspora in Dubai Cricket Stadium, said the joint statement between India and the UAE condemns state sponsored terrorism.
“UAE and India have made a clear statement against terror in their joint statement today. This is very important… ‘samajhne wale samajh jayenge’, ‘akalmand ko ishaara kaafi hai’ (the message will be clear to those it’s intended for),” Prime Minister Modi said.
“Those who indulge in terror must be punished and this is the message that has resonated from here today,” he added while talking about the anti-terror document signed with UAE.
Asserting that terrorism has no boundaries, Prime Minister Modi said the world must unite to fight terror.
“When I used to talk about terrorism, they used to say it’s a problem of your law and order. And now they understand that terrorism has no boundaries,” said Prime Minister Modi.
“Good Taliban, Bad Taliban…Good Terror, Bad Terror…this won’t work. A decision has to be taken are you with terrorism or with humanity,” he added.
Prime Minister Modi said India has been a victim of terrorism for 40 years.
“We are victims of terrorism for 40 years. Innocent people have lost their lives,” he said.
Around 70,000 people are attending the event.
