Terrorism is often referred to as India's threat number one. Indeed, the country has seen serious assaults on its democratic institutions, including on the Red Fort and Parliament House; both symbols of independent, democratic India. Two of her most protected Prime Ministers - Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi - have been assassinated. Punjab chief minister Beant Singh was blown to pieces, while others like Farooq Abdullah in Jammu and Kashmir and Prafulla Kumar Mahanta in far away Assam have had narrow escapes. Terrorism has spread its tentacles far and wide, be it through the groups operating in Kashmir in north India or the ULFA in the northeast or even the LTTE, whose lethal capabilities have ensured that J. Jayalalitha retains tight security irrespective of whether she is in power. Planes have been hijacked and blown up, foreigners kidnapped and killed and vital installations bombed. The lethal Chinese assault rifle has often given way to improvised explosive devices that have been used to blow up bridges and army convoys; just as suicide bombers have now raised the threat of terrorism to alarming proportions. The Indian government has its own list of twenty 'Most Wanted'terrorists whose extradition it is seeking from Pakistan. This book profiles six militants who through their respective organizations hold out the maximum threat to India's unity and integrity. Interestingly, five of the six - with the exception of Paresh Barua, commander in chief of ULFA - are operating from outside the country's geographical boundaries. Some, like Professor Hafiz Saeed, the Lashkar-e-Taiba chief, have been never even set foot on Indian soil but yet control and command one of the most lethal terrorist outfits. Well-known counter terrorism expert KPS Gill's introduction gives an insightful overview, while the other authors have profiled leaders of six important militant organizations to provide rich, often frightening details of their modus operandi. The six are 'most wanted'not only because of their past activities, but also because of the threat they continue to pose. Printed Pages: 144.
