Indian home ministry has informed that Sikh youths are being trained at ISI training centres in Pakistan to carry out terrorist attacks in India. Moreover, through the medium of the internet, Sikhs living in Canada and other places are also being manipulated against our country.
Home ministry told the Committee on Estimates, headed by senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi that the commanders of Pakistan based-terrorist groups are instructed to plan terrorist attacks in India.
The report said: “Sikh youth are being trained at ISI facilities in Pakistan. Interdictions and interrogations have revealed the use of jailed cadres, unemployed youth, criminals and smugglers by Pakistan-based Sikh terror groups for facilitating terror attacks.”
“The problem is further accentuated by the fact that the terror groups have started using secure social media platforms and proxy servers etc. to avoid detection by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Activities of radicalised people returning from conflict areas and a threat of lone wolf attack are also a challenge.”
