The US on Tuesday issued a travel warning for its citizens visiting Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, and said extremist elements are also ‘active’ in India.

“The US government assesses terrorist groups in South Asia may be planning attacks in the region, possibly against US facilities, citizens and interests. US citizens should avoid travel to Afghanistan, as no region in the country is immune from violence,” the State Department said in its worldwide caution.

“A number of established terrorist organisations,indigenous sectarian groups, and other militants pose a danger to US citizens in Pakistan.

“Extremist elements are also active in India, as outlined in a recent emergency message. Terrorists have hit a wide variety of targets and institutions in Bangladesh,” it added.

      To define terrorists itself is a definition second to is-lame-ed,---some think that not all MUZZIES are terrorist but it's evident as 99.9% of terrorists are MUZZIES,---Jai hind.

            Those Indians who have extreme hate for Hinduism are the extremists.

                As regular hate crimes are taking place in U S A on Indian's , it is justified for India also to issue a travel advisory to it's citizens to avoid travelling to U S , Australia and New Zealand. This should be in headlines of news papers and internet.lt;br/gt; for Tat will only work with countries like U S and China.

                  Hard core Hindu organizations enjoy full support of the govt who are free to kill, thrash, and rape anyone who criticizes govt policies. US is warning its citizens against these organizations.
