India at UN raises concerns on use of drones for terrorism, slams Pak for spreading false narratives

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

NEW YORK [US]  ( ANI) : India on Monday (local time) expressed concern at United Nations (UN) over misuse of information and communication technology for terrorist propaganda and radicalisation and called on the attention of the UN member states on the possibility of weaponised drones for terrorist purposes.

Speaking at a UN high-level conference of heads of counter-terrorism agencies, VSK Kaumudi, Special Secretary (Internal Security), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), said: “Being a low-cost option and easily available, utilisation of these aerial/sub-surface platforms for sinister purposes by terrorist groups such as intelligence collection, weapon/explosives delivery and targeted attacks have become an imminent danger and challenge for security agencies worldwide.”




“The possibility of the use of weaponised drones for terrorist purposes against strategic and commercial assets calls for serious attention by the member states,” he added.




Kaumudi also slammed a vitriolic diatribe by the Pakistan delegation, accusing it of “peddling false narratives and making baseless allegations against India”.

“For a nation that engages in sectarian violence against its own minorities and harbors a deep sense of insecurity and orchestrated hatred for India, there is nothing new that we could have expected from this delegation. 7th review of the Global Counter- Terrorism Strategy (GCTS) is over and Pakistan’s false narrative was summarily negated by the UN membership,” he said.

He added that the international community should call upon Pakistan to take effective, verifiable and irreversible actions against terror outfits operating on the territory under its control and not take the high road of morality which is only laden with mines of falsehood.

The MHA Special Secretary also highlighted how the internet and social media platforms have become indispensable resources for global terrorist groups for spreading terrorist propaganda and conspiracy theories aimed at spreading hatred among societies and communities and officer radicalisation opportunities.
