Fight against terrorism isn't war on any religion

LIVE PM Narendra Modi is speaking at the conference on'Islamic Heritage Promoting Understanding & Moderation

Jordan King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein today said he is truly delighted with the warm welcome that he has received in India, and hoped that the visit will herald a new start to the historic chapter of relationship between the two countries. So what is in store for India and Jordan? Jordanian side has a lot of experience in this matter and both countries have resolved to cooperate on this issue.

King Abdullah thanked the Federation of India's Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Confederation of Indian Industry, the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, and the government of India for making this trip so successful.

India would like to walk together with you in the work done by you in the area of de-radicalisation, the prime minister said.

On Wednesday, King Abdullah met a select group of Indian CEOs and attended the India-Jordan Business Forum. Interestingly, the Jordanian King, who has been a paratrooper and pilot of the Cobra military helicopters, was also given a "presentation" by the Indian side on India's Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) after a request made by him.

Other agreements signed include long-term supply of rock phosphate and fertilisers to India, mutual assistance between India and Jordan to ensure proper application of the customs legislations in the two countries, cultural exchange programme between the two countries from 2018 to 2022 and setting up a Hindi chair in the University of Jordan.

King Abdullah later said that fight against terror is not a war against any one religion or against Muslims, and that the Islam he grew with, teaches compassion and mercy. Those who perpetrate crimes against humanity do not realise that they undermine the religion in whose name they claim to stand for, Modi added.

Prime Minister Modi also shared similar sentiment and said fight against radicalism and terror is actually directed against the distorted "mindset" and not against any religion. "It is between all faiths and communities against extremism, hate and violence", he said.

"It is time the Indian leadership owned our heritage of plurality and moderate Islam that India has always had, and take that to the world", the custodian of the Ajmer Sharif Sufi Shrine, Salman Chisty told reporters after the event.

Late on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was returning from Karnataka, stayed on at the airport to receive King Abdullah of Jordan with his singature bear hug. "It is against that mentality that misleads our youth and prepares them to persecute innocents".

The Jordanian King arrived here on a three-day visit which is aimed at taking bilateral relations to a "new high".
