Of late discordant notes come from US official circles which give an impression that Washington is not averse to politicising global terror when it comes to handling it in the case of India. The US top military brass at CENTCOM and other regional command levels has subtly expressed that the Kashmir dispute has a link to terrorism.
The British foreign secretary, Mr. David Miliband, recently joined his voice with that of American Generals when he wrote in The Guardian that not resolving Kashmir dispute was the cause of rise of terror in India. One would ask that by the same token what were he causes of 9/11?
Terror unleashed by religious extremists is not unknown to the US or UK. Both have taken measures aimed at ensuring maximum security to their nationals and institutions of the state. Obviously, other counties afflicted by same scourge would also exercise their right to protect their citizens and sovereignty of their state.
