Observing that Islam does not have any link with terrorism, External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said that sometimes religious texts are misinterpreted to commit terrorist activities.

"There is no relation between Islam and terrorism.... In fact, no religion has any place for terror," Mukherjee said.

Sometimes religious texts are misinterpreted to commit terrorist activities, the minister said.

"Terrorists are enemies of humanity," he said. Mukherjee said this after inaugurating the Dakshineswar Adyapeeth Ananda Vidyamandir at Adyapeeth.
