To bring radicalisation under anti-terror law, MHA mulls various options


New Delhi, Sep 4: In a bid to bring radicalisation under the ambit of the anti-terror law, the Union Home Ministry is mulling over a proposal to define the term.

The Ministry for Home Affairs and the Intelligence Bureau are exploring the possibility of setting up a think-tank on counter-radicalisation also. This think-tank would look into madrasas and also the mainstream education system. It would also look into international and online domains for radicalisation.

A process to identify vulnerable targets is also being put into place. This would include policy formation, working with moderate clerics and communities.
