After two decades of organised violence in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir, India has learned to live with terror. But on Sept.24, 2002, the country was rudely greeted by a new face of terror as jehadis mowed down innocents, including women and children at the Swaminarayan Temple in Gandhinagar, Gujrat. Coming just seven months after the Godhra massacre, the latest killings make it amply clear that jehadis have decided to open fronts against soft targets in States other than Kashmir. So what can India today? The book therefore merits attention of experts on Asia, diplomats and policy makers of developed countries.
