There can be no double standards regarding religious hatred : India tells the UN

UN Ambassador T S Tirumurti

New York (USA) – ‘There cannot be double standards regarding religious hatred. The international community must work together to combat hatred and violence against all religions, including Sikhism, Buddhism, and Hinduism, not just against the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). India is the biggest victim of cross-border terrorism’, India’s representative to the UN Ambassador T S Tirumurti said. The Ambassador also called for the development of an education system that truly contributes to the fight against terrorism by promoting the principles of democracy.

Tirumurti was speaking at an event marking the first anniversary of the International Day of Countering Hate Speech. ‘We have repeatedly emphasized that India’s multicultural nature has made it a haven for all those who have sought refuge here for centuries. It is this inherent strength of our nation that has withstood radicalisation and terrorism over time’, he added.
