ABOUT THE BOOK:- Terrorism is the greatest challenge to Indian National Security today. Threat of terrorism has been in the process of growth in the South Asian region since 1979 after the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan. In this Terrorism Miscellany author through sixty articles discusses various facets of terrorism. Terrorism Miscellany takes readers from the beginning to right up to the Modi government's handling of terror attack on Pathankot Airbase in January 2016; and Rajnath Singh's visit to Islamabad to attend SAARC Home Minister's Conference in Islamabad in August 2016 to highlight the fact that terrorists can under no circumstances be considered as patriots. While terrorism is the main theme, Miscellany has also two sub themes: How Pakistan is using it to grab J & K's territory, beyond illegally held PoK and, second highlights US policy of 'Double Speak' over the period. It highlights failures of various governments in fully comprehending the gravity of the threat since the beginning as seen in considering it as raised by “misguided boys” in the 1980s and the 1990s. Today Pakistan is not only the epicenter of cross border terrorism against India but is also the Global University to train and promote terrorists. Author makes several suggestions to effectively tackle the threat of terror. What stands out as the most important recommendation is his suggestion to treat terrorism as an act of war against India—and not an issue of law and order—and act accordingly. The book should be of considerable interest to every citizen interested in contemporary national security issues. It is a handy guide to policy-makers, diplomats and current political leaders and aspiring ones.
