India, a poor and insanitary country with fear of terrorism


The 2008 Mumbai attacks were more than ten coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai,
India's largest city, by Muslim terrorists from Pakistan. The attacks, which drew widespread condemnation
across the world, began on 26 November 2008 and lasted until 29 November, killing 173 people and
wounding 308 or more.
Three explosions went off in the Indian capital of New Delhi on 29 October 2005, which killed more than
60 people and injured at least 200 others. The high number of casualties made the bombings the deadliest
attack in India of 2005. It was followed by 5 bomb blasts on 13 September 2008.

Terrorism in India is primarily attributable to Islamic, Sikh, Christian and Naxalite radical movements.
The regions with long term terrorist activities today are Jammu and Kashmir, Mumbai, Central India and
Seven Sister States (independence and autonomy movements). In the past, the Punjab insurgency led
to militant activities in the Indian state of Punjab as well as the national capital Delhi.
India stepped up its airport security after the 1999 Kandahar hijacking. The Central Industrial Security
Force, a paramilitary organization is in command of airport security under the regulatory frame work of
the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security. CISF formed an Airport Security Group to protect Indian airports.
It was subsequently made an armed force of the Union of India by another act of Parliament passed in
June,1983. Its current strength is 105,000. The strength will be raised to 145,000 by two to three years.
It is directly under the Federal Ministry of Home Affairs and its headquarters are at New Delhi.

Many people left India after suffered from a severe diarrhea. All causes of this abhor symptom is
not clear. However, most cases are from infection from a dirty water, ice, raw vegetables and very poor
sanitation in the Indian society. The causative bacteria are as follows: MSSA, salmonella ,vibrio cholerae,
bacillus cereus, plesiomonas shigelloides, O157, clostridium perfringens, protozoa and others. Treatment
for dehydration and supplement of the necessary minerals and nutrition is desired at an earliest time.

The Mother and Child Health and Education Trust recommend an oral rehydration therapy
and continued feeding. Safe water, adequate sanitation and proper hygiene are too often
forgotten foundations of good health. Handwashing with soap alone could potentially reduce
the number of diarrhea. In children, zinc tablets and Vitamin A supplement is known to
reduce diarrhea.
