Terrorism watch

The Taliban campaign against education in Afghanistan continues unabated.

Three more schools in Helmand province were burned down in the last few days.

B.Raman has a commentary on the escalating terrorist activity in Afghanistan.

On Hamas, B Raman notes that "No party can contest an election in India without accepting the Constitution of India. No organisation in India - ethnic, ideological or religious - which is banned as a terrorist organisation can contest an election", and points out that the the world now faces a big problem with Hamas winning the elections in Palestine because "the Hamas was allowed to contest the elections before it had fully accepted the rules of democracy and lawful international behaviour".
