New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi targeted Pakistan over the terror issue at the Brics summit in Goa on Sunday, telling other Brics leaders  that Pakistan was the “mothership of terrorism”.

Mr Modi further sent a strong message to Pakistan on the issue of  its increasing diplomatic isolation that “to those who nurture the philosophy of terror, and seek to de-humanise mankind, we must send a clear message to mend their ways or be isolated in the civilised world”.

In the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Brics summit earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi sent a veiled but firm message to China in the wake of Beijing opposing a proposed UN ban on Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Masood Azhar, saying: “Selective approaches to terrorist individuals and organisations will not only be futile but also counter-productive. There must be no distinction based on artificial and self-serving grounds.”

The Goa Declaration adopted after the Brics summit strongly condemned the recent terror attacks including in India (in Uri and Pathankot), asked all countries to prevent “terrorist actions”.
