The online tribute posted on X (formerly Twitter) reinforced the collective memory and resolve against terrorism. Attendees included UK and Indian dignitaries, symbolising a joint front in the fight against terror.

The event remembered the 166 lives lost in Mumbai, with attendees from various backgrounds paying their respects. This act of remembrance transcended national borders, showcasing a unified stance against terrorism.

International stance on terrorism

A key discussion point was the global response to Israel's designation of Lashkar-e-Taiba as a terror group. Doraiswami noted a growing recognition of the need for action against states that use terrorism as a policy instrument. This development signals a global shift towards legal and international mechanisms to counter terrorism, a stance strongly advocated by India.

"I think our consistent and unwavering stand is that this has to be addressed substantively through the legal and international domains. I think that is beginning to find resonance in a way never before," ANI quoted Doraiswami as saying.

"I think that's an important part of the process that we must continue to follow. Having focused on the legal route and the route of applying pressure through the process by which the international community makes clear that this is unacceptable," he added.
