India among worst-affected, yet terrorism is not the primary issue for daily security


The score was determined by weighting over a five-year period terrorism-related occurrences, hostage deaths, and injuries.

According to a research based on the Global Terrorism Index, India has a number of low-intensity conflicts in several of its border regions, although the vast majority of the nation’s population lives elsewhere.

India was among the 25 worst terror-hit nations but was also among 56 of the 120 countries polled where no respondents chose conflict and terror as the main threat to their daily safety (GTI), according to the 10th edition of the Global Terrorism Index.

India has a number of low-intensity conflicts in some of its border regions, but the vast bulk of the nation’s population resides outside of these places, according to a research based on the index published on Tuesday by the Sydney-based think tank Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP).

Especially younger respondents who have grown up amidst ongoing volatility may be desensitised to violence in their nations, the survey warned respondents from countries like India.

The 13th-ranked country of India, which was described as having a “strong” impact from terrorism, had a GTI score of 7.175 as opposed to Afghanistan’s top score of 8.822 on the index.

The score was determined by weighting over a five-year period terrorism-related occurrences, hostage deaths, and injuries.

The majority of any area, 12% of South Asian respondents rated war and terrorism as their top concern for daily safety. The lowest percentage in any region, 0.28 percent of respondents from Central America and the Caribbean saw conflict and terrorism as the largest danger to their daily safety.

The Communist Party of India (Maoist) was ranked as the 12th deadliest terrorist organisation in 2022, ahead of both Lashkar-e-Taiba (13th) and al-Qaida (16th) in the Arabian Peninsula. It stated that last year’s 61 attacks by the Maoists resulted in 39 fatalities and 30 wounded.

According to the article, the D-Company, owned by wanted don Dawood Ibrahim, now dominates Mumbai’s illegal market for phoney cultural items. Citing witnesses, it claimed that D-foray Company’s into the counterfeit trade was concurrent with its metamorphosis into a terrorist organisation that supported other terrorist organisations.

The investigation also stated that D-Company was a criminal organisation that made money through prostitution, counterfeiting, extortion, the trafficking of drugs, weapons, and precious metals. “In the early 1990s, D-Company decided to penetrate the Indian film business,” said the report, which examines the significant worldwide trends and patterns in terrorism over the last decade.

According to the study, D-Company established contacts with al-Qaida and other terrorist organisations in Kashmir rapidly. Their participation in the 1993 Bombay attacks, which claimed 257 lives, was well acknowledged, according to the research, which drew on data from TerrorismTracker, which offers event records on terrorist acts since January 2007.

According to the research, there were 6,701 fewer terrorist deaths worldwide in 2022, a 9% decrease. Compared to their high in 2015, they were 38% lower. The decline in events, which dropped from 5,463 in 2021 to 3,955 in 2022, was mirrored by the decline in fatalities.

According to the report, there have been fewer attacks in the West since 2017, and this trend has continued. “In 2022, 40 attacks were reported, a decline of 27% from the 55 attacks in 2021. Nonetheless, even from a low base, the number of deaths more than doubled, rising from nine in 2021 to 19 in 2022, with 11 of those deaths taking place in the US.
