India, US must come together to combat terrorism: Tulsi Gabbard

  • Ms Tulsi Gabbard

US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu member of the US House of Representatives, feels the relationship between India and the US has been energised after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit and wants the two Governments to work closely in countering terrorism, including cyber terrorism.

“Terrorism is an enemy and a threat that doesn’t wear one country’s uniform or owe allegiance to one country’s flag, but rather exists in many different parts of the world. In order to defeat this threat, we (India and the US) will have to work together,” Gabbard, the first Hindu member of the US House of Representative said.

“..And that includes the Government and leadership of Pakistan taking a stronger stand and action against these terrorists,” Gabbard added.

She hoped that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama, during his visit here for the Jan 26 Republic Day celebrations, would discuss the urgency to press upon Pakistan the need to take the terror threat more seriously.
