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 commit violence, radicalize youth and raise financial resources and spread radicalized material by using cybercrime tools and concealing their identity.
Shah said, ‘Undoubtedly, terrorism is the most serious threat to global peace and security. But I believe that the financing of terrorism is more dangerous than terrorism because such financing feeds the ‘means and methods’ of terrorism. Apart from this, the financing of terrorism weakens the economy of the countries of the world.
He said, ‘We also believe that the threat of terrorism cannot be linked to any religion, nationality or group.’
Shah 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 weaken and destroy the collective efforts to fight terrorism.
He said, ‘Some countries protect terrorists and also give them shelter. Giving protection to terrorist is equivalent to promoting terrorism. It is our collective responsibility that such elements and such countries never succeed in their intentions.
