New Delhi, Aug 5 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said he told Pakistan not to glorify terrorism and urged all Saarc nations to respect United Nations ban on terror oufits.
�I told them that strongest action must be taken not just against the terrorists but also those who support terrorism,� Rajnath Singh told the Rajya Sabha, a day after he returned from a two-day Pakistan visit to attend the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) interior ministers meeting.
The home minister said he suggested to the Saarc member countries that the �ban on terror outfits by the UN must be respected�.
�There is no good or bad terrorism. I urged all members that terrorists should not be glorified or patronised.�
He said as South Asia �suffers from terrorism, India’s message is for peace and humanity and that terrorism is the biggest enemy of humanity”.
Pakistan hosted the Saarc meeting amid a bloody unrest in the Kashmir Valley that has left more than 50 people dead in clashes between security forces and Kashmiri protesters in nearly a month of turmoil.
In Islamabad, the home minister criticised the Pakistan government for describing slain pro-Pakistan Kashmiri rebel commander Burhan Wani as a “martyr”.
Wani’s killing triggered the Kashmir unrest – blamed on Pakistan by India.
