Zero Tolerance of Terrorist Activities - Patil


New Delhi, Feb 22 (IANS) The government had a "zero tolerance" policy towards terrorism and remained vigilant against all forms of challenges posed by the threat, President Pratibha Patil Monday said.

"Zero tolerance of terrorist activities is our principled policy. We have to keep constant watch and innovate against global terrorist groups," Patil said, addressing a joint sitting of both houses of parliament on the opening day of the budget session.

Detailing some measures taken by the government to strengthen the security apparatus, Patil said the establishment of the four National Security Guard (NSG) hubs, the operationalisation of the National Investigation Agency and strengthening the Multi-Agency Centre that analyses intelligence alerts on a real time basis had helped hinterland security.

"The overall internal security, law and order and the communal situation remained largely under control during 2009. Infiltration of terrorists from across the line of control in Jammu and Kashmir has gone up," she said.

"Even then, the security situation has improved significantly in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the north east, but left wing extremism continues to be a significant cause of concern."

Infiltration in Kashmir Up

Militant incursion from Pakistan into Jammu and Kashmir had gone up, President Pratibha Patil said Monday while also stressing that the security situation in the state had improved "significantly" in the state as well as in the northeast.

President Patil was addressing the joint session of parliament at the beginning of the budget session.

She said the overall internal security, law and order and the communal situation remained largely under control during the last year.

"(But) infiltration from across the Line of Control (the de facto border that divides the state between India and Pakistan) in Jammu and Kashmir has gone up. Even, then the security situation has improved significantly in Jammu and Kashmir as well as in the northeast," she said.

    Dear Mr. Nagesh Nayak, I quote your previously commented wordings “CHURCH MASS ARE CONDUCTED ON LINGUISTIC WITH TIMINGS FOR KANNADA,MALAYALAM,TAMIL,TELUGU & ENGLISH. WHY DON'T YOU FOLLOW ONLY HINDI. Unquote. Why Car festival in the Car Street is exclusively for Gowda Sarswath Brahmins and the other Hindus are unwilling to attend because you like only amchigele/Konkani people.

    Are you conducting Pooja in Hindi as our National language is Hindi? Why the sloka’s are pronounced in Sanskrit only? God knows only Sanskrit? It is good that every person worship/speak to God in his mother tongue so as to express his problems, sufferings, needs and ask forgiveness to his creator that is the reason Church is having separate, separate timings for the mass. If Hindi speaking people are more in numbers the church will conduct mass in Hindi also. I think you are naïve in our mass services. Come on Mr. Nagesh Nayak, you are welcome to our Church we will conduct mass for you in Hindi. Don’t be worried.

    Come in a good mind and not in a perverted heart and mind. We have even Hindi hymns sung during the mass and specifically pray for our people and nation through the core of our hearts. Perhaps the Hindu fundamentals will never think of that we pray in such a goodly manner for our/Indian nation and to the whole world. As far as me I love Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior even if I know I will pray to Jesus in Sanskrit also. My God is well known of all languages not only Sanskrit.

    Withdrawing one's own money from the ATM is ok, but stealing the wealth of a state and raping its resources ( Bellary mafia), on whose illgotten money the party runs, is definitely not ok Nagesh mamu. Its great to know that you also find our first prime minister to be a dashing personality and seem privy to his love affairs.

    Hi,Jude, Mangalore Dubai,& RAHUL, mangalore, problems in India started when nehru was busy with edwina. No proper plan for security & development. Therefore the NDA government was targetted for your past sins. Once NDA ruled our country for 5 years all developmental work rejuvenated & India was blooming. now we are having remote controlled govt. & with 39 years old YOUNG hero . NOT BOTHERED ABOUT TALANGANA ISSUE . YOUNGSTERS ARE SELF IMMOLATING. INDIANS ARE BEHEADED & MURDERED. BUT WE ARE HAVING ENOUGH TIME FOR WITHDRAWING MONEY FROM ATM .jai ho.

    This lady finally got up from sleep. But moreover, the reason why we become targets for terrorist attacks is because we have no unity among ourselves. We fight over petty issues. We have no religous harmony. If we all come together and respect each others religion and practices then no one will dare to attack us. Unity is strength. Jai ho India.

    Dear President you are talking about external terrorism which can be curtailed by efficient intelligence, NSG and other paramilitary forces. What about the internal terrorism by all sections of people, followers of hate/violent ideologies which include people from both hindu and muslim community who prove to be terrorists to each other? Just find out, do a research whats terrorism means to India, in Indian perspective, what are the causes and what are end results. If not treated now, what may happen to our country tomorrow.

    As long as social and economic justice is not done, if we promote hate and violence, promote capitalism, no one can stop terrorism be it a small scale or large scale... Terrorism is the fall out of some ideologies which were forced to take birth by policies of alienation, social inequality, caste stystem etc. Unless and until therse causes are not treated one cant treat the symptoms.

    Nagesh Maam, If while in power your BJP government had acted tough on terror after Kandhar, Akshardham, Kargil and the Parliament attacks, then the 26/11 attack would never have taken place. Your government was busy playing host to Musharaff and Advani was busy planning his holiday in Pakistan and to praise Jinnah and eat kebabs when the Paki terrorists were busy sharpening their knives to stab us in the back. Therefore the UPA government is today paying for your past sins.
