Counter-Terrorism: Those Who talk more, And Act Less

Archives

December 8, 2007: A new source of Islamic terrorism has been an increasing number of  radicals among the 140 million Indian Moslems. Indian Islamic radical groups have been around since before India became independent sixty years ago. But in the last few years, more and more Indian Islamic radicals are adopting al Qaeda's beliefs and tactics. Pakistani radicals have been assisting Indian Islamic militants with training, weapons and even technical advisors. Saudi Arabian religious charities, which support the spread of very conservative Islam (Wahhabism), plays right into the hands of al Qaeda and Islamic radicals in general. The Indian government has gone to the Pakistani and Saudi government for some cooperation in halting the spread of Islamic terrorism, and has received some cooperation. But so far, the biggest obstacle Islamic radicals face in India is that the majority of local Moslems are hostile to terrorism in the name of religion. Indian Islamic radicals are responsible for a lot of the pro-Islamic terrorism web activity. That's because the Indians tend to be better educated, and speak English. But these fellow also tend to talk more, and act less. Most of the terrorism in India still comes from imported Islamic terrorists, communist rebels and tribal separatists.
