Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday met his Bangladeshi counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan and raised the issue of attacks on minorities and temples in that country, official sources said. Amit Shah also had productive exchanges with the Bangladeshi minister on border management and common security-related issues.

He raised with Mr Khan the issue of attacks on minorities and temples in Bangladesh, the official sources said. “Union Home Minister @AmitShah met H.E. Asaduzzaman Khan, the Home Minister of Bangladesh on the sidelines of the ‘No Money for Terror’ conference. Both sides had productive exchanges on border management and common security-related issues,” Amit Shah’s office tweeted.

Asaduzzaman Khan is here to attend the third ‘No Money for Terror Ministerial Conference on Counter-Terrorism Financing’ hosted by the Ministry of Home Affairs. The two-day conference, which began on Friday, is being attended by 450 delegates from over 75 nations and international organisations.

Earlier, addressing the conference, Home Minister Amit Shah said terrorism is the most serious threat to global peace and security but financing of terror is “more dangerous”.

Terrorists are constantly finding new ways to carry out violence, radicalise youth and raise financial resources, he said.

The darknet is being used by terrorists to spread radical content and conceal their identities, Amit Shah said.
