Boston bombings: The challenges ahead for the US counter-terrorism policy
Dr. Ashok Sharma
25 April 2013
Given the US's counter-terrorism experience and security threat, it is in its interest to come out of its earlier bureaucratic deadlock and view the threat of terrorism more objectively and work to enhance counter-terrorism cooperation with countries such as India.
Boston bombings: The end of complacency
20 April 2013
With the US already having made a strong base to deal with terrorist activities from external sources, it is time the US, and other countries develop mechanisms that tackle home-grown groups with vigour, but without endangering the principles of 'rule of law'. This is particularly important as the elements of home-grown terrorism are, in fact, the citizens of the respective countries.
Pressure cooker bombs: Low-intensity but greater headache than RDX
20 April 2013
After the Boston bombings, the big counter terrorism question for the US will be how to prevent such attacks in the future. The possibility of 'copy cat' attacks cannot be ruled out. It will be difficult to prevent or monitor the sale of pressure cookers or other utensils. Tracking the locally available incendiary materials could be a better and more effective counter action.
Terror attacks: A call to look within
22 February 2013
Despite being a victim of terrorism for decades, India has demonstrated remarkable consistency in the irrational and incoherent response of its policy makers, people and sections of its mass media to dramatic and outrageous terrorist violence.
Kasab hanging: A victory for India's justice system
11 December 2012
The sad fact is the Pakistani rulers are unable to prevent Taliban activists from targeting their own people, the Shias, whose processions have been periodically attacked in Rawalpindi and Karachi. It is high time Pakistani rulers realised the fact that terrorism would consume their own people even before it targeted others in India.
Talking to Taliban
C. Raja Mohan
22 November 2012
Any realistic assessment would suggest that the Taliban holds the key to the Afghan peace process. An Indian engagement with the Taliban does not mean a political endorsement of its ideology or worldview. Finding a way to talk to the Taliban must necessarily be a part of Delhi's Afghan policy mix.
On fourth Mumbai attack anniversary, LeT revives Muridke convention
06 November 2012
Few days before the fourth anniversary of the Mumbai terrorist attacks, Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) is planning a two-day training convention at Muridke (near Lahore), its former headquarters from where the terror attack was planned and executed.
LeT's new media strategy
18 October 2012
Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT), a Pakistan-based terrorist group, is taking its social media outreach programme a notch further by conducting workshops on the use of social media to its cadres and supporters.
LeT expanding its Social Media presence
27 September 2012
The extensive use of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter by banned terrorist group Jamat-ud Dawa during the ongoing protests over the anti-Prophet film shows the group's rising ambitions of becoming a global voice for the Muslim community.
Anti-film rallies help LeT consolidation
24 September 2012
The JuD and its allies' protest rallies against the film on Prophet Mohammad indicate the group's attempts to expand its role from a local guardian of Islamic cause to a global one. This inference could be drawn from JuD taking up the cause of Rohingya Muslims' plight in Myanmar and the blasphemous film.
