The PMO is under the misapprehension that its most dangerous decision to date was to make a strong, comprehensive, robust counter-terror framework in the wake of the Pathankot attacks.
But the Prime Minister is right to take note of a string of terror incidents, including the Pathans attack, which was a direct consequence of his policy of taking tough action against Pakistan-based terror outfits.
It is a mistake to assume that this is an absolute or even the only policy that can bring about peace.
The BJP has made some very smart and pragmatic decisions.
One such decision was to create a national network to combat terror and it has succeeded.
The PM is correct to take it as an example of a strategy that is working.
The terror threat is getting much tougher, and India is on the verge of achieving its highest peace and security score in years.
It will take a long time for the terror threat to subside.
The Prime Minister should be encouraged by this.
The biggest threat to peace and stability in the world today is the global rise of militant groups, who will continue to try to take advantage of this vacuum and destabilise our neighbours, our partners and our allies.
It must be the most effective way to tackle terrorism and create a stronger, more prosperous and more peaceful world.
