The outgoing chief justice of the Supreme Court of India, the apex court in the country, Mr R.C. Lahoti was not off the mark when he commented in his farewell remark that India was lacking the political will to combat terrorism. In democracy, such as India, the political expediency often dictates the course of administration. Indian government had exposed its weakness when five dreaded terrorists were released in exchange to the abducted daughter of the then Home Minister of India Mufti Mohammad Sayeed way back in 1989. Since then, the terrorists’ violence is continuing in that province. A few years ago, the right wing Hindu nationalist party released another group of dreaded terrorists in exchange to passengers in a hijacked plane at Kabul. At least, the US is credited not to succumb to the terrorists’ demand though the US is too a democracy.
