Trivandrum, India (INS News) — Dark clouds away from horizon of anti-global terrorist steps by the formal declaration of designating Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed as foreign terrorist organisation. Though delayed, US determination is highly appreciable one. Fulfilment of a long-standing demand, India welcomed the ban describing it as yet another display of determination by US in fighting global terrorism. Recent disclosure of Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defence in a joint press communiqué with George Fernandes, Defence Minister of India, that Kashmir would not be excluded from campaign against terrorism further strengthen the move for global sweep. A step in the right direction and heartening one.
US secretary clarified the the war against terrorism was not about Afghanistan alone but target terrorist wherever they are. Liberation of Tigers of Tamil Ealam (LTTE) which is waging war for a separate homeland for Tamil in Sri Lanka, also branded as a foreign terrorist outfit.
Let and JeM are the keen trouble makers, both in home and abroad. Both Pakistan based outfits were only responsible for ruthless and heinous killings in India. Previous years trigger on a army camp near Redfort at New Delhi realised that the hands of outfits not remained within the boundary of Jammu & Kashmir but spread over in the subcontinent. Many innocent became victims in ruthless and heinous killings with the backing of Pakistan even after the attack on World Trade Centre. For not blaming this massacre, US became targeted serious criticism. Nations especially India measured suspiciously on US steps on anti-terrorism. Realising all these, may be the reason behind the ban of these organisations as ultras.
Not secret one that Pakistan is fully backing these ultras. With out that they could not acquire advanced weapons. US determination could be seen as a stinging rebuttal of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf that the terrorist actions in J&K are indigenous freedom fighters. US determination that Kashmir would not excluded from anti global terrorist activities and wont rest till every terrorist group is removed, should have its own quantum of spirit to eradicate this organisations. US have to device fairly solid code of definition to curb the outfits. Earlier attitude of US nurtured these ultras to grow and colour the happenings as freedom fighters.
How far US’s anti terrorist step lead to cease activities is the main question and divert them to main stream. Attacks on military camps after this designation seems to be a menace. All the eyes cornered what steps US going to take against the branded outfits. The subcontinent is the victim of terrorism, channelled by these organisations with the full support of Pakistan.
US have to initiative all steps to prevent support to terrorist and cross border terrorism.
The scheduled visit of Atal Behari Vajpayee of Washington for talks with George W Bush as a part of Indian campaign against terrorism, expect a fruitful one for eradicating terrorism .
