Terrorism is driven by a misguided belief in its power to succeed: Sushma
Says, our Muslims brothers, sisters are a microcosm of diversity of India Addresses the OIC Foreign Ministers plenary session at Abu Dhabi, UAE Abu Dhabi, Mar 01 (HS): “Terrorism and extremism bear different names and labels. It uses diverse causes. But in each case, it is driven by distortion of religion, and a misguided belief in its power to succeed,” said Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj. Addressing the OIC Foreign Ministers plenary session here today, Sushma said that I stand here as a representative of a land, that has been for ages a fountain of knowledge, a beacon of peace, a source of faiths and traditions, and home to religions from the world and now, one of the major economies of the world. It is for the first time that India has been invited to an Organisation of Islamic Cooperation meeting as guest of honour. She further said that I carry the greetings of 1.3 billion Indians, including more than 185 million Muslim brothers and sisters. Our Muslims brothers and sisters are a microcosm of the diversity of India itself. Very few Muslims in India have fallen prey to radical and extremist ideology. “In the past four years, few relationships have seen as much engagement, or has been so transformed, as India’s relationship with UAE and, indeed, with the entire Gulf and West Asia Region. In a sense, it is a return of history,” she added. India shares much with you. Many of us have experienced the dark days of colonialism. Many of us saw, the light of freedom and the bright ray of hope at the same time. We have stood together in solidarity, in our quest for justice and dignity, Sushma said.
