The US and UK may like to believe that they are leading the war on terror globally, but the country that has had to face the worst of terrorist attacks on its own soil, barring war-torn Iraq, is India.

In fact, India has since 2004 lost more lives to terrorist incidents than all of North America, South America, Central America, Europe and Eurasia put together. All of these vast swathes of the globe lost a total of 3,280 lives in terrorist incidents between January 2004 and March this year. India alone lost 3,674 lives over the same period of three years and three months.

In yesterday's edition of TOI, in our front page lead report on the Hyderabad blasts, we had said that terror groups have left India with perhaps the highest number of civilian victims of terror (apart from war-torn countries like Iraq).

Later, on Sunday, when we looked in detail at the worldwide numbers, we found India not only had the highest number of deaths after Iraq, but also the highest number of terror-related incidents and injured among all countries (again, barring Iraq) — more than all the war zones around the globe. India has been hit by terrorists at will and with chilling regularity — Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Malegaon, Varanasi, J&K — the list is endless.
It's only on one count — hostages taken by terror groups — that India's at No 3, to Iraq's No 2. Guess which country was No 1? Nepal, that too by a huge margin, thanks to large-scale kidnappings by Maoists.

Indeed, if one had to pick a terrorist hotspot on the globe it would have to be South Asia. Outside of Iraq, 20,781 people were killed in terrorist violence between January 2004 and March 2007, according to data available from the Worldwide Incidents Tracking System (WITS) of the US National Counter-Terrorism Centre (NCTC). Almost half of them, 9,283 to be precise, were killed in South Asia.

Besides India, Afghanistan has seen 2,405 lives being lost while more than 1,000 each have been killed in Pakistan and Nepal. Sri Lanka has had 866 terrorism-related deaths and Bangladesh 158. Bhutan and the Maldives are the only South Asian nations not to have lost lives to terror in this period.

Is it because Indias are insensitive?

Look at the number of people killed in drunk driving road accidents, dowry related "suicides", riots, death due to floods, farmers suicide, Mafia kidnapping and killing, Marxist daily killing in Chhatisgarh, Army personnel dying in KAsmir and Assam etc. Even deaths due to Malaria and other absolutely easily treatable diseases are quite large. However, nothing moves people or media. The only thing that excites media and Iindians are Sanjubaba, Salman and anything that Sonia Mata and her family does! Hanging of Saddam aroused more sympathy than terrorist attack!

Indians are pathetic lot on which world must be laughing and terrorist feasting.

I believe that Indian people have become absolutely insensitive. No soul only body and body politic.

Agree with the above post. Who cares about people who are dying due to the reasons that could easily be taken care of, and endless lives can be saved? All the Indian polititians care about is their pockets, as they know they can easily get away with that. Ever heard about the good ol' scamsters 'P V Narsimharao, Chandraswami, Lalloo 'chara' Yadav, and bunch of Goonda polititians'? Nothing has done despite of the court ruling.

Media - yes. All the way passionate about the news which is not at all a news and issues that hold no significance.

Simply hopeless!!

I am still proud at my heritage and the place that I was born and raised in, i.e. India. Noone can question that. But, despite of the imbibed pride deep within me, you can't ignore the state of affairs in India.

I am sure everyone who stayed in India for a longer period (I, for 28 years) contributed one way or the other in regards to the upliftment, whether it is in the form of taxes, using the voting power, refused to pay bribe when needed be (I can say that because my family and I did so), sending money dollars to family at home, or by other means. 'Pathetic' is way too strong a word to use in this context, and which was never used by me. Please have a look at my post again...

Thanks and a great day ahead...

Cheers :)
