Speaking at the International Conference of Chief Justices of the World in Lucknow Sunday, Singh referred to Modi’s remarks during the BRICS conference where he had branded Pakistan as the “mothership of terror”.

The judge said that since India recognised the problem of terrorism as a threat, it should “take recourse” to the directive principles of state policy enshrined in the Indian Constitution and “take the lead.” “It is my view that PM Modi has emerged as a leader with regional and international stature, he is well placed in this period to emerge as the world’s champion of peace,” said Singh.
