Terrorism is a major threat in the world today and India has been suffering a lot in the last couple of decades. A look at the A to Z of India’s terrorism scene…
A for Ajmal Kasab, Abu Jundal and Afzal Guru
Ajmal Kasab was the only terrorist captured alive in the infamous Mumbai 26/11 attacks. He has been more in the news for the hospitality he is facing in Indian prisons. The Hindi tutor and handler of the same attacks, Abu Jundal was arrested recently. Afzal Guru was convicted for the 2001 attack on Indian Parliament.
B for Bhindranwale
Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was at the centre of the Punjab militancy in the 1980s. First he was indirectly backed by the Central government and later he was fighting against it. He took residence in the Golden Temple complex and perished with many of his colleagues in Operation Blue Star.
