New Delhi: After Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar stated that Pakistan needs to shut down its terrorism factory, Defence Expert Major General (Retd.) P.K. Sehgal on Wednesday categorically stated that Islamabad is the greatest threat to human kind, peace and tranquility and therefore it is now a global phenomenon.
Major General (Retd.) Sehgal told ANI that Pakistan is producing thousands of Osama Bin Laden on a yearly basis who is creating mayhem not only in the neighbouring country but across the globe.
“The entire world is fully aware of the fact the Pakistan has become the production centre of terrorism world over. They are not producing one Osama Bin Laden, they are producing thousand of Osama Bin Laden on a yearly basis, who are creating mayhem not only in the neighboring country but across the globe….hence, the greatest threat to human kind, peace and tranquility is from the terrorist factory Pakistan and hence the need for Pakistan to close down these terrorist factories in a major way,” he added.
Pakistan needs to shut down “terrorism factory” and there is now international concern about it, Jaishankar said on Tuesday.
He also asserted that India has not given up on SAARC, but it will keep looking for other opportunities for regional integration “since SAARC is stuck”.
Emphasizing that it is the security concern which makes India urge Pakistan to put an end to terrorism, Jaishankar said the former cannot live with sudden on and off of this issue.
“The thinking on Pakistan is necessarily security centric because the fact is we can live in a situation of very little threat but not in a situation of terrorism on and off, which will be the case as long as the factory keeps running,” he added.
Pointing out that terrorism is now not only India’s concern, Jaishankar said it is now a global phenomenon.
“Terrorism in the past was seen as our problem but now it’s a bigger problem. There is today international concern (on terrorism),” he said.
India, on many occasions, has used global platform to bring into notice Pakistan’s endorsement of terrorism to the world community.
