Addressing Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Brazilian President Jacob Zuma and South African leader Michel Temer at the BRICS Summit's "restricted" segment, Modi said terror modules around the world are linkedto this "mothership". "In our own region, terrorism poses a grave threat topeace, security and development.

Tragically its mothership isa country in India's neighbourhood. Terror modules around theworld are linked to this mothership," he said. "This country shelters not just terrorists. It nurtures amindset. A mindset that loudly proclaims that terrorism isjustified for political gains. It is a mindset that westrongly condemn.

Further he added, "And, against which we as BRICS need to stand and act together. BRICS must speak in one voice against this threat," Modi said, without naming Pakistan directly.
