Modi decries lack of unanimity in fighting terrorismUnited Nations, Sep 27 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi decried the lack of unanimity in fighting terrorism, the biggest challenge for humanity, in his address to the UNGA on Friday.

“The lack of unanimity amongst us on the issue of terrorism, dents those very principles, that are the basis for the creation of the UN,” Modi said, addressing the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

“We believe that this (terrorism) is one of the biggest challenges, not for any single country, but for the entire world and humanity,” he said.

India has given the world ‘Buddha’ and not “yudh” (war), and that is why when it raises its voice against terror, it not only has seriousness, but also anger, Modi noted.

“We belong to a country that has given the world, not war, but Buddha’s message of peace. And that is the reason why, our voice against terrorism, to alert the world about this evil, rings with seriousness and the outrage.”

Modi’s speech was focused on development and inspiring the world to take on the challenges of development.

In a brief segment on terrorism, he recalled India’s contribution to peacekeeping operations, which adds weight to India’s voice against terrorism.

“The largest number of supreme sacrifices made by soldiers of any country for UN Peacekeeping missions is from India,” he said.
