New Delhi, Nov 8 (UNI) Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy today said Hindus in India, forming the majority chunk of the country's population, were the key targets of terrorism.
Releasing his book ''Terrorism in India: A strategy for Deterrence'', Dr Swamy said what India needed today was a radically different approach that of a policy of deterrence.
According to National Counter-terrorism Center, Washington, India suffered more significant acts of international terrorism than any other country, excluding Iraq.
Surprisingly, despite this, the country lacks an active policy of deterrence against terrorism, Dr swamy added.
He claimed that it was he who introduced the policy of deterrence in the country when he was a Minister in the then Chandrashekhar's Governemnt in 1991 and had to dismiss Karunanidhi's Government in Tamil Nadu as also secure the release of Union Water Resources Minister Saifuddin Soz's daughter who was kidnapped by JKLF militants in Srinagar.
