In a blunt message to Pakistan, vice president M Venkaiah Naidu today said "not a single inch of India's land will be ceded to anyone, even as the neighbouring country continues to abet terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir."
Delivering the R V Raju memorial lecture here, Naidu said "no religion in the world allows terrorism but some people in the name of religion are being radicalised and pushed into terrorism."
"Terrorism is their state policy. I want to make it clear to them, not an inch of India's land will be allowed to be taken. It will never, never happen," he said in presence of home minister Rajnath Singh, Army chief General Bipin Rawat besides others. Referring to the investigation against "terror funding" into Jammu and Kashmir, Naidu said some people were "caught naked" in the probe.
The vice-president said no terrorist organisation can function without finances and "terror funding is the oxygen on which such activities thrive."
"The recent investigations by the NIA in tracing and tracking the funding of the separatist groups and leaders have successfully disrupted the supply of funds to the separatist groups.
"This has led to a significant decrease in the incidents of terrorism as well as decline in the subversive activities being carried out by the separatists," he said at the function organised by the National Investigation Agency. PTI
