Pranab for zero tolerance against terrorism, condemns Islamabad blast

Tue, 01 Jan 2008 ANI

Baharampur (West Bengal), Sept 21 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday said that the international community must adopt zero tolerance towards acts of terrorism.

 

Mukherjee, while terming Saturday's suicide attack on five-star Marriott hotel in Islamabad as a 'sad incident', told media persons in Baharampur that India is always averse to acts of terror.

 

"India condemns such acts of destruction and terrorism in any country of the world," he said.

 

Mukherjee also took a dig at opposition parties which criticised the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government for allegedly being 'soft on terror' in the wake of the recent serial blasts in Bangalore, Ahmedabad and New Delhi.

 

He reminded critics that anti-terror laws such as Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) and Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, under the previous National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime, failed to contain terrorism. (ANI)
