New Delhi: Targeting Pakistan without naming it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said India stands strongly against terrorism, and is presenting before the world the "true colours" of those who shelter and finance terrorism.
Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on Independence Day, PM Modi said India is fighting against terror with great strength, and will not support any country that shelters and finances terrorism.
"We will expose before the world all exporters of terror. We, together with other countries of the world, will fight those sheltering terrorism, financing and exporting terrorism. We are presenting their true colours in front of the world."
He said neighbouring countries -- Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka -- have been victims of the terror attacks.
"So when India is fighting against terrorism, we are playing our role on the world stage," he said.
He greeted Afghanistan that is going to celebrate its 100 years of Independence after four days.
