Now I know a number of posters have mentioned in other threads that they see no difference between the dangers in Pakistan and India. However, I always saw the situation a little differently. In light of todays events, I thought Id research the dangers more closely than I have done before for my own education.
Ignoring the most recent, by my count there have been 128 terrorist acts in India that involved a minimum of one death since the begining of 2006.
That is roughly 1 a week. I know its a big country, but that shocked me.
By comparisson there were 105 in Pakistan for the same period (though given population size differences the number for Pakistan is far larger).
(There is a small chance of reports being duplicated in the source evidence)
In comparison, the UK has had 0 and the USA has had 1 (an incident Im suprised Id never heard of)
"One woman was killed and five other injured when Naveed Afzal Haq, a Muslim-American man, opened fire on the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in downtown Seattle. Haq entered the building, expressed his anger toward Israel and the US war in Iraq, and began shooting. Haq allegedly told police that it was a hostage situation and wanted the US to get weapons out of Israel. Haq eventually surrendered to police and was taken into custody. He now faces either life in prison or execution."
Anyway, I still (from my remote perspective) see Pakistan as far more dangerous and lawless but how do others see Indian security evolving over the forseeable future?
It isnt an issue that I pretend to know much about, so what are the politics of terrorism in India and its future?
