VARANASI - A woman from Madhya Pradesh succumbed to her injuries Saturday, becoming the second casualty of Tuesday's Varanasi terror blast even as police are still waiting for forensic reports on the nature of explosives used.
Two factors have complicated the terrorism problem in India. One is Pakistan's, or rather, the Pakistan Army's implacable hostility. This animus has acquired a nihilistic dimension with the involvement of suicide squads patronised by the army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which has been described as a rogue agency by none other than A.Q. Khan, "father" of the Pakistani nuclear programme.
