India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Security Council on Tuesday said that al-Qaeda’s ties with Pakistan-based terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, banned by the United Nations Security Council, are getting stronger. He also underlined that the recent developments in Afghanistan have re-energized terrorist groups. India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations TS Tirumurti told a conference organized by the Global Counter Terrorism Council that the Islamic State (ISIS) has changed its strategy, now focusing on gaining a foothold in Syria and Iraq, and its regional allies. are consolidating expansion, especially in Africa and Asia. Tirumurti said that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in 2001 proved to be a turning point in our approach to terrorism. India on Tuesday termed as dangerous the tendency of several UN members to classify terrorism on the basis of their political, religious and other motives. India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations TS Tirumurti, on behalf of the Global Counter-Terrorism Council, said at the 2022 International Conference on Terrorism, that due to its political, religious and other objectives, the radicalization of many members of the United Nations is motivated by violent extremism and right-wing extremism. The tendency to classify terrorism into such categories is alarming. It will take the world back to what it was before the US attacks on September 11, 2001, when terrorists were classified as your terrorists and mine terrorists.
