MELBOURNE, Nov 7 - India on Thursday called for a united global effort against all those who support terror or help generate finances for terrorism, saying there should be zero-tolerance towards the menace.
Addressing the inaugural session of the �No Money For Terror� conference here, Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy also expressed India�s concern over the tacit support some nations are extending to terror groups.
There is a need for a united global effort against all those who support terror or help generate finances for terrorism, he said, without naming any country. Pakistan has been blamed for sponsoring and supporting terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen, which were responsible for hundreds of attacks in India, including 26/11 Mumbai attack in 2008 and attack on Parliament in 2001.
Reddy said at the international conference, being attended by 65 countries, that India, being a victim of cross-border terrorism, advocates zero-tolerance towards terror. He said despite the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011, several active affiliates of Al Qaeda still exist in many parts of the world and cautioned that despite recent elimination of ISIS chief Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, there is no room to construe that the �Caliphate� would cease to survive.
The minister is leading a high-powered five-member delegation, including Director General of the National Investigation Agency YC Modi. The conference is organised by financial intelligence units of over 100 countries, jointly called The Egmont Group. � PTI
