There is an irony to this whole issue of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. When this scourge was raising its head in non Western areas, and the alarm bells were being given to the West, they large ignore the issue and instead encouraged the wombs of terrorism countries like Pakistan and the like. Then 9/11 happened. It shook their very entrails and smugness. The scourge had hit home. Now that the scourge is creating havoc with western hostages and butchering them, they are waking up from their deep dream of peace. It is time that the world awakens to this scourge before it destroys the world. India too should take this threat seriously and take necessary action.
