Catch those who are radicalizing our youths

Details emerging after the Lucknow encounter have made one thing clear: that these terrorists were “self-proclaimed ISIS supporters” and they had no direct contacts with the dreaded outfit. These terrorists became ISIS followers on the internet, made ISIS flags, and learnt the ropes of bomb making through the internet. The pressing need of the hour is to stop such youths from being radicalized. No doubt this is a tough job, but religious heads should come forward to guide such youths, and authorities should catch those people who are trying to radicalize and misguide our youths. One should salute the slain terrorist Saifullah’s father who has refused to take his body for burial, saying he has done an anti-national act. We should also appreciate the close coordination between the Telangana, MP and UP police in nabbing the terrorists.
