Describing terrorism as one of the gravest threats to humankind, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Tuesday that the bodies dealing with human rights should realise that terrorism can never be justified, nor its perpetrators ever equated with its victims.

Speaking at the high-level segment of 46th session of Human Rights Council, Mr Jaishankar said terrorism is a crime against humanity and violates the most fundamental human right namely the right to life.

"Terrorism continues to be one of the gravest threats to humankind," he said in a virtual address.

"As a long-standing victim, India has been at forefront of global action against terrorism. It's possible only when there's a clear realisation, including in bodies dealing with human rights, that terrorism can never be justified nor its perpetrators ever equated with its victims," he said.

He said India presented last month at the UN an eight-point action plan to deal with the scourge of terrorism. "We will continue to work together with members of the UNSC and other states to ensure implementation of our action plan," he added.
