Terrorism in North-East has its roots in North-East but it gets its nutrients from the neighbouring countries. There is a wide network of cross border terrorism prevailing in North-East, especially in Assam. All the major terrorist groups have their bases set up in different countries from where they operate. The in action of the government of those countries have also supported their cause and escalated India’s headache. All most all the terrorist groups have their bases in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Bhutan, etc.
United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) has its training camps in Bangladesh, Myanmar, etc. Most of their leaders also stay in other countries. The recent arrest of its two leaders namely Sasha Choudhury and Chitraban Hazarika along the Bangladesh border has further proved it. Even N.D.F.B. and NSCN also have their training camps in others countries.
The main reasons for them setting up training camps and bases in those countries is the apathy shown by those countries in helping India solve its problem, rather they somehow sponsor terrorism. Recently the change of Government in Bangladesh has led to some change in the general mood in Bangladesh establishment. The present government has shown some interest in flushing out terrorist from its soil. The earlier they do it, the better it is for them also. Other countries have sometimes launched military action against them occupying their soil but the intensity is very low and also rare.
These countries do not understand that the ones they are helping or supporting now, one day will affect their security and sovereignty. Our government should pressurize them so that these countries start taking action. We can hope that good sense prevail on them.
