Enemies are not always outside: Khurshid
New Delhi: Law Minister Salman Khurshid
on Wednesday backed Home Minister P Chidambaram`s statement that
cross-border outfits were not the only source of terror
attacks in India.
"I don`t think the Home Minister has intended to restrict
home-grown terror to any particular religious group. It is a
very profound and sound statement. We should not always be
looking for enemies outside. It is much worse to have an enemy
within," Khurshid told reporters here.
In an interview to BBC, Chidambaram had said "we can no
longer point to cross-border terrorism as a source of terror
attacks in India."
Khurshid said if someone from within questioned the
safety and security of the country, "it is much worse."
"I support his statement. I stand by him".
Khurshid was asked how he, as the Minister for Minority
Affairs, felt about Chidambaram`s statement.
