Support to terror must be basis for disqualification from Commonwealth: India


Akbar M JIndia has pushed for inclusion of the sustained support for terrorism and radical extremism as one of the grounds for disqualification of a member state from the Commonwealth. An official source said, there are currently eight grounds on which the Commonwealth can take action against a member country, including violation of democratic values and good governance.

At the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) meet in London yesterday, India stressed that this must be expanded to nine, to include sustained support for terrorism and radical extremism.

Earlier Addressing an audience of MPs and peers at the House of Commons complex in London yesterday Mr. Akbar has expressed dismay at the UN’s continued struggle to find a definition for terrorism since 1996. He said there seems to be more cooperation between terror groups than the countries fighting them.

Singling out terrorism as the one major obstacle to a path to economic prosperity, Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar said that India will not allow the forces of violence in its neighbourhood to succeed. He said the world must recognise, participate and join India in this battle.
