Former Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor, supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "proxy war" statement, said that India always believes in working towards peace.

He said that if Pakistan shows any signs of working against terrorism then the two countries would like to walk in the same path.

"I have seen the Pakistani response. We all understand that Pakistani civilians have suffered greatly from terrorism. When you encourage, finance and nourish terrorism, it can turn back and hit you and that is what has happened in Pakistan. So I don't think what the Prime Minister said was inappropriate," said Tharoor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had yesterday condemned the continuing proxy war by Pakistan.
