Cross-border terror extends beyond Pak: PC

  • tags: no_tag

    • Home Minister P Chidambaram has said there is a need to redefine the idea of cross-border terrorism to include terrorists from beyond Pakistan, to include the Middle East also, besides pointing out that one of the bigger challenges faced by the security set-up is the threat of homegrown Islam or Hindu terror groups.
    • Chidambaram, who spoke on security scenarios, ruled out any military options to tackle the Maoist movement but pointed that there were new dimensions of terror groups like homegrown Hindu fundamentalists and to a smaller extent extreme Sikh groups. The Home Minister said while India had the means to “contain, control and resolve” the Maoist menace in central India and North-East insurgency, it would be more difficult to deal with religious terrorism.
