Ranchi, Nov 28 (UNI) Lok Janashakti Party president Ramvilas Paswan today termed as dangerous trend the ploy of some groups to pass the buck to the Centre in the wake of every terrorist attack saying both the state and the union government should devise a joint mechanism to counter the menace.

Mr Paswan, also the union minister, said America had effectively devised a mechanism not allowing reccurrance of terrorist strike after the twin-tower catastrophe but unfortunately several dastardly attacks had occurred in this country since then.

The LJP president addressing a gathering on the party's eighth foundation day here, referred to the ongoing worst ever crisis in Mumbai saying terrorists should not be identified with any religion.

He said there were two groups behind such designs--foreign elements and internal elements.

The external forces were obvious, he said.

''But internal elements are more dangerous'', he said adding the BJP always became vociferous targetting the Muslim whenever any terror attack took place.

''What about Pragya Thakur and Purohit (army personnel) in Malegaon case and the security agncies are after perusing many details were on the verge of zerouing on even Sudarshan....'' He said he had already written to the Prime Minister requesting him to investigate the syllabus in schools run by the RSS where the students were taught that shiv lingams existed in Mecca.

He said there should not be double-talk on countering terrorism and all should be dealt with same yardstick be it Hindu, Muslim or Christian.
