NRIs recommend hot pursuit

Dharam Shourie in New York

Expressing outrage at the "vicious and cowardly" terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament, community leaders in the US have urged the government to take strong action to eliminate terrorism and terrorists from the country as also their bases and training camps wherever they exist.

In a strongly worded resolution adopted at a meeting on Sunday, they warned the Bush administration that victory in its war against terrorism would be incomplete unless the scourge is wiped out from Kashmir and elsewhere in the world.

A five-member committee was formed to work out details as to how NRIs could help in India's fight against terrorism.

During the debate that preceded the adoption of the resolution, many community leaders said the Indian government needs to be more proactive in dealing with Islamabad. Some said that India should take initiative, like Israel, in attacking and destroying terrorist bases in Pakistan and parts of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Indian ambassador-at-large for the people of Indian origin, B K Agnihotri, promised to convey the feelings expressed at the meeting to the political leadership in New Delhi and urged them to help their country in this time of crisis.

Agnihotri also stressed on the need for all organisations representing Indian American community to act unitedly and suggested that they form a coordination council that would take up issues on which all agree.
