New Delhi: Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Bipin Rawat during a panel discussion at the Raisina Dialogue on Thursday, said that terrorism will not end until there are states which keep supporting it.
“Terrorism is here to stay as long as there are states that sponsor terrorism and they are going to use terrorists as proxies, make weapons available to them, make funding for them, then we cannot control terrorism,” said Rawat.
“The future of terrorism is going to be as dirty as conventional warfare. We might think of a happy ending, but there won’t be. So if we think the war on terrorism is going to end, we are wrong,” he added.
“We have to bring an end to terrorism and that can only happen the way Americans started after 9/11, they said let’s go on a spree on the global war on terror. To do that you have to isolate the terrorists, anybody who is sponsoring terrorism has to be taken to task,” Rawat said.
