Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on Monday said India should take a lead in defeating terrorism emanating from Pakistan by forming a global front of all "humanitarian forces".
"Pakistan has become a hub of global terrorism. Presence of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden there is a further proof that Pakistan was protecting terrorists," Modi said in an official statement.
Killing of Laden on Pakistani soil proved the country is home to banned terrorist outfits, said Modi.
"It is time that Indian government bring together all humanitarian forces of the world to form a group against Pakistan to defeat terrorism," he said.
The chief minister also took a dig at the US president and said, "It is unfortunate that US President Barack Obama who announced the killing of Osama, did not utter a single word against Pakistan which is protecting terrorist groups."
Modi said India should exert pressure on the US to ensure it does not show any leniency towards Pakistan.
