The fight against terrorism is not a confrontation against any religion: Sushma Swaraj in Abu Dhabi

Sushma Swaraj in Abu Dhabi 700 01

External Affairs Minister of India Sushma Swaraj has stated that the fight against terrorism is not and cannot be a confrontation against any religion.

She was addressing the inaugural plenary of the two-day foreign ministers’ meet of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an influential grouping of 57 Islamic countries, in Abu Dhabi on Friday. She addressed the event as a Guest of Honour.

In her address, Sushma further said:

"If we want to save humanity, we must tell the states who provide shelter and funding to terrorists, to dismantle the infrastructure of the terrorist camps and stop providing funding shelter and funding to the terror organisations based in that country.

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.

Just as Islam literally means peace, none of the 99 names of Allah mean violence. Similarly, every religion in the world stands for peace, compassion and brotherhood.

India's Muslim brothers and sisters are "a microcosm of the diverstity of India itself. 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.

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."
