Manipal, Oct 3 (UNI)Inspector General of Police(IGP), Western Range A M Prasad has warned that with growing terrorist activities in India, the country could be clubbed with neighbours like Afghanistan and Pakistan, which were prone to terrorism.

Inaugurating a three day 'Model United Nations Summit Manipal-2008' (MUN Manipal), jointly organised by Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) and Manipal University (MU) here, he said terrorism has been breeding strongly in India and every single day was posing a challenge for security police to counter the onslaught. The home grown terrorists had become a prey for all the terror acts of the 'big brains' across the border. ''Innocent'' people were the targets of mayhem of terrorism, he said.

Mr Prasad pointed out that recruitment and financial support for terrorist activities were rampant. Educational and non-educational institutions like 'Madrasas' were acting as key recruitment centres where the youth were indoctrinated by religious dogma to give life for the cause of religion.

Financial support flowed through fake currencies from across the border through 'jehad' funds and hawala to these terror modules, he added.
