The Pakistan-based international terror organization, Lashkar-e-Toida (LeT) has threatened to blow up the Golden Temple, the famous Sikh religious site. The threat came in the form of a letter from someone claiming himself to be a LeT operative by the name of Karim Ansari.
This is not for the first time that a religious place is under threat from Pakistani militants. The entire modus operandi of spreading terror in India is based on fracturing the secular fabric of the nation. Occasionally, the terrorists have also succeeded in their mission. Actually, it is the weakness of teror victims to succumb to the divisive objectives of terrorists.
Meanwhile, security was beefed up in and around the Golden Temple in Amritsar. It is largely believed that the threat is a hoax but the changing global order will not allow the security agencies to take any sort of risk.
