Every terrorism incident should be condemned and action should be taken against it. This is an attack on civilization and humanity, it has no boundaries. India had seen the dark side of terrorism long before the world. We cannot wait for terrorism to reach our homes. We need to break terrorism, their support and economic links.Simple target without naming Pakistan and ChinaDuring this, Prime Minister Modi targeted Pakistan and China without naming them. The Prime Minister said that many countries support terrorism politically, economically and ideologically. Those who show mercy or sympathy towards terrorism also need to be shown a mirror. One source of terrorism is organized crime, whose members have links with terrorist organizations that finance arms and drug trafficking in terrorist activities. We have to end the support system of terrorists by stopping their funding. Some countries support terrorism by giving financial and ideological help. The international community should take note of this. A strict stand should be taken towards proxy war. The world should be wary of such an attitude. All the gangs that are active have foreign connections. Helping them should be stopped. There should be action against organized crime.This is how terrorism will be defeatedPM Modi said that only the approach of uniform unified and zero tolerance can defeat terror. The face of terror is also changing in the age of technology, which includes dark net and fake currency. Terror has no boundaries, only zero tolerance approach can counter it. Terrorist can be eliminated at the same time, but concrete strategy ends the root of terrorism. It requires an active response.
