So much hate in the comments, it's a lot when compared to many countries which don't even make regular compulsory contribution to the UN.

That's like leaving a 5¢ tip at a restaurant. You're effectively saying you remembered to leave a tip, but you've purposely made it a very bad one to send a message whereas leaving it off leaves some room for doubt.

It's progress for India. It's not a huge amount of money sure, but it's a massive gesture forwards.

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind moment.

21 As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. 2 He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 3 “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. 4 All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

Religion is a human mental mechanism to cope with hardships. In other words, god does not exist.

Yeah, just spin up some pseudophilosophical horseshit about the existence of god. That'll make you right.

You said nobody had said it before, I proved they did, quit your bullshit.

NEW DELHI (AP) — India will contribute half a million dollars to the United Nations’ efforts to counter global terrorism as new and emerging technologies used by terror groups pose fresh threats to governments around the world, the foreign minister said on Saturday.

The money will go toward the UN Trust Fund for Counter Terrorism and will further strengthen the organization’s fight against terrorism, S Jaishankar said as he addressed a special meeting of the UN Counter Terrorism Committee in New Delhi.

This is the first time such a conference, focused on challenging threats posed by terror groups in the face of new technologies, is being held outside of the UN’s headquarters in New York.

Jaishankar said new technologies, like encrypted messaging services and blockchain, are increasingly being misused by terror groups and malicious actors, sparking an urgent need for the international community to adopt measures to combat the threats.

“Internet and social media platforms have turned into potent instruments in the toolkit of terrorist and militant groups for spreading propaganda, radicalization and conspiracy theories aimed at destabilizing societies,” he said in his keynote address.

Jaishankar also highlighted the growing threat from the use of unmanned aerial systems such as drones by terror groups and criminal organizations, calling them a challenge for security agencies worldwide.

“In Africa, drones have been used by the terrorist groups to monitor movements of security forces and even of UN peacekeepers, making them vulnerable to terrorist attacks,” he added.

British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly reiterated the dangers of unmanned aerial platforms, saying that such systems were being used by to inflict terror, death and destruction.

“Drones are being used currently to target critical national infrastructure and civilian targets in Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine,” he said. “This is why we have sanctioned three Iranian military commanders and one Iranian company involved in the supply of drones.”

The special conference kicked off on Friday in Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment capital, which witnessed a massive terror attack in 2008 that left 140 Indian nationals and 26 citizens of 23 other countries dead by terrorists who had entered India from Pakistan.

Jaishankar on Friday said India regretted the UN Security Council’s inability to act in some cases when it came to proscribing terrorists because of political considerations, undermining its collective credibility and interests. He did not name China but referred to its decision to block UN sanctions against leaders of Jaish-e-Mohammad, a Pakistan-based extremist group designated as a terrorist organization by the UN.

India and the United States sought the sanctions earlier this year. China put the proposed listing of the two terrorists for sanctions on hold on technical grounds saying it needed more time to study their cases.”

Isn't contributing to the UN like flushing money down the toilet? Even former UN employees have openly talked about the huge amount of wasteful spending at the UN as well as the mismanagement of funds. I really do hope those funds go towards curtailing terrorism - it's a noble use of money, and glad to see India doing this.

This amount is too generous considering all the money given to UN only goes into funding the luxurious lifestyles of UN "employees" lol...

Actually doesn’t matter. India isn’t a high income country. We don’t need to contribute monetarily at all. India already sends one of the largest no. of troops for UN peacekeeping so there is just additional service.

I don't know man, 4.11 crore is nothing when we are talking about things of that magnitude. I do not know what the subtle message is here.

There is no subtle message. It’s just a formality for them to say “hey we have done our monetary contribution. Now get lost”

Us and India are literally gonna perform more war games near China. India doens't need to bribe anyone when they are close to the Us. Also India isn't giving money for nothing it's purchasing oil which has increased in price globally and hard to find ethical suppliers.
