In an indirect reference to Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday lambasted India's neighbour for using terrorism as their political tool and said that, eventually, that would become an equally big threat for Islamabad as well. 

While addressing the United Nations General Assembly's 76th session in New York, Prime Minister Modi said that the countries with regressive thinking are using terrorism as a political tool.

However, the Prime Minister said that those countries need to understand that terrorism would pose an equally big threat for them.

India has always been raising the issue of cross-border terrorism and terror financing at several global platforms. 

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan is still on the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force’s grey list for failing to check the issue of money laundering leading to terror financing. 

The FATF had in June 2018 placed Pakistan on the 'grey list' and was given a plan of action to complete by October 2019. But it failed to get out of the list. It was given 27 action items so far it has acted on 26.

Prime Minister Modi began his address by paying his tribute to those who lost their lives fighting the COVID-19.

During his address, he invoked his family background wherein he mentioned that the strength of India's democracy is highlighted by the fact that a son of a tea seller is today the Prime Minister of the country.

Earlier on Saturday, India had slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for once again raising the Kashmir card at the UN platform.

While setting the record straight once again for Islamabad, India made it clear that the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are and will remain an integral part of India.

First Secretary Sneha Dubey reiterated that Pakistan has an established history and policy of harbouring and actively supporting terrorists. 

Pakitan has been globally recognised as openly aiding and abetting terrorists as part of its State policy, she added.
