Defence Minister Rajnath Singh taking to twitter today on the occasion of 12th anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, hit out at Pakistan, saying the neighbouring country has been exposed as a ‘nursery of terrorism’.

Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts, the Defence Minister said Pakistan has been exposed over its terror activities on the global platform.

Rajnath Singh emphasised that Pakistan is still in the ‘Grey list’ and on the radar of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) due to the opinion created by the Prime Minister.

Pakistan was placed in the grey list by FATF in June 2018 and was asked to implement a plan of action to curb money laundering and terror financing by the end of 2019, but the deadline was extended later on due to Covid pandemic.
