"In our own region, poses a grave threat to peace, security and development. Tragically its mothership is a country in India's neighbourhood. Terror modules around the world are linked to this mothership," he said told Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Brazilian President Michel Temer and South African President Jacob Zuma at the BRICS Summit's "restricted" segment.

In his remarks at the BRICS plenary session, the Prime Minister said response to must be nothing less than comprehensive and that countries must act both "individually and collectively".

"Criminality should be the only basis for punitive action against the individuals and organizations responsible for carrying out terrorist acts. Terrorist funding, their weapons supply, training and political support must be systematically cut off," he said.

Modi also called for early adoption of the draft Comprehensive Convention on International saying doing so will be an expression of "our resolve" to fight the menace.

"Its reach is now global. It has grown more lethal and adept at the use of technology. Our response to must, therefore, be nothing less than comprehensive," the Prime Minister said.

He said selective approaches to terrorist individuals and organizations will not only be futile but also counter-productive and that there must be no distinction based on "artificial and self-serving grounds".

In this respect, Modi said there was a need to deepen the security cooperation among the National Security Advisors.

During his bilaterals with Putin and Xi yesterday, Modi had strongly articulated India's concerns over emanating from Pakistan.

The Prime Minister stressed that those supporting have to be "punished, not rewarded."

"The growing arc of today threatens Middle East, West Asia, Europe and South Asia," he said.

"Its violent footprint puts at risk the security of our citizens and undercuts our efforts aimed at economic growth," he added.
