He called on the United Nations to include Hindutva fascism in its counter-terrorism endeavours.
Furthermore, he said Hindutva’s dystopian narrative, like other forms of violent supremacist movements, also fuels terrorism.
Munir Akram said the racist and fascist ideology of Hindutva, practiced by the ruling BJP and its militant parent, the RSS in India, poses an existential threat to the 180 million Muslims of that country.
Meanwhile, he also referred to the sponsoring, funding, and support of terrorism by the state and non-state actors.
Munir Akram said terror outfits are being used as ‘guns for hire’ by India to destabilize Pakistan.
He cited the terror attacks on Chinese Consulate in Karachi and more recently on Pakistan Stock Exchange as examples of that form of terrorism. He said Pakistan is among the biggest victims of terrorism.
