According to a report in The Hindustan Times (New Delhi) today, $1.7 million was raised last year by the India Development and Relief Fund (IDRF) from individuals and corporations in the United States (including Cisco and Sun Microsystems) to distribute among Sangh parivar agencies, which are now established as the premiere terrorist organisations in the country.

On what basis are these the premiere terrorist organisations in India today?

First, by the body count and general destruction and duration of terrorism this year.

Second, by their tactics: almost all other terrorist organisations in the country operate by stealth through individual assassinations or surreptitious bombs; by contrast, the Sangh organisations are the only ones that operate by mass action in the open.

What do U.S. corporations - not to mention the U.S. Government - propose to do about this?
