      We already know it. Isis is not a threat to India because no body will join it. The real threat for india is bharat Jalao party and rashtriya shaitan sangh.

          He means to say that only stani terrorist are the threat to India. While the other groups don't have any issues with India. lt;br/gt;But I think this is somewhat wrong or somewhat right. lt;br/gt;Right because this is true that nobody wants here violation and ISIS don't care about India.lt;br/gt;Wrong because this organisation doesn't have any morality towards any country. they just concern over their targets and missions. They want to became por by spreading terrorism. They are not country specific. lt;br/gt;9/11 is big example of this.
