‘Terrorism continues to be gravest threat to humankind’: S Jaishankar

India on Tuesday underlined that terrorism continues to be one of the gravest threats to humankind and it can never be justified, nor its perpetrators ever equated with its victims. Speaking at the high-level segment of the 46th session of the Human Rights Council, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said terrorism is a crime against humanity and violates the most fundamental human right namely the right to life.

"Terrorism continues to be one of the gravest threats to humankind," he said in a virtual address.

"As a long-standing victim, India has been in the forefront of the global action against terrorism.

This is possible only when there is a clear realization, including in bodies dealing with human rights, that terrorism can never be justified, nor its perpetrators ever equated with its victims,” he said in a veiled reference to Pakistan which is accused of providing safe havens to terrorists and often glorifying them.
