Amit Shah Speech at No Money for Terror conference Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday targeted both China and Pakistan, terming terror financing as a bigger threat than terrorism. On giving protection to Pakistan in the matter of terrorism, he said without naming China that some countries want to weaken the collective efforts to fight terrorism and they protect terrorists.
He said that it should not be linked to any religion, nationality or group. Addressing the third ministerial conference on counter-terrorist financing on the theme ‘No Money for Terror’ at Hotel Taj Palace in the capital, Shah said that giving protection to terrorists is tantamount to promoting terrorism. And it is the collective responsibility of all the countries that such elements and such countries should never succeed in their intentions. He also said that terrorists are constantly finding new ways to perpetrate violence, radicalize youth and raise financial resources and spread radicalized material by using cybercrime tools and concealing their identities.
Many countries protect terrorists
Shah said, “Undoubtedly, terrorism is the most serious threat to global peace and security, but I believe that financing of terrorism is more dangerous than terrorism itself. Because such financing feeds the ‘means and methods’ of terrorism. Moreover, financing of terrorism weakens the economy of the countries of the world. “We also believe that the menace of terrorism cannot be linked to any religion, nationality or group,” he said. Said that India has made significant progress in strengthening the security infrastructure as well as legal and financial systems to counter terrorism. Indirectly attacking Pakistan, the Union Home Minister said that unfortunately there are some countries which want to undermine and destroy the collective efforts to fight terrorism. He said, “Some countries protect terrorists and also give them shelter. Protecting a terrorist is tantamount to promoting terrorism. It is our collective responsibility that such elements and such countries never succeed in their designs.
