Profusion of terrorist groups or insurgents or secessionists or militants is nothing new in the world of terrorism. Bruce Hoffman, a terrorist expert on the insurgency in Iraq has been quoted in The New York Times saying ‘There is no centre of gravity, no leadership, no hierarchy: they are more a constellation than an organization’. In fact, barring exceptions such as Srilanka where Prabhakaran headed LTTE, a terrorist organization, clamouring secession from Sri Lanka on ethnical lines, in terrorist-affected countries proliferation of terrorist groups is modelled on communist groups in any democractic country only a decade ago. It is the romance of hogging limelight using the willing media as a platform, which lead terrorist groups multiply day and night. Their sole strength is their statements in the media and occasional terrorist action here and there. The covert support of the local community lead to glamorisation of their action. In Punjab (India) the state exposed the misdeeds of the terrorists clamouring for a seperate Sikh State and won back the confidence of the people in the state. Soon after, terrorism came to an end. Regimes, fighting scorage of terrorism should emulate this example.
