Saffron Terror is creating much noise these days. Before we go much into it, let’s first have a sound idea about this relatively new phenomenon. To be honest, this Saffron Terror is a wrong name. As terror can never have a religion, colour or community angle to it, we should not call it Saffron Terror or Hindu/Hindutva Terror. Some suggest Hindu radicalization or Right wing extremism to be used but those names don’t give a clear idea about this phenomenon. In brief, these are terror acts (mainly explosion of bombs) to target the Muslims in India and the alleged saffron terrorists do such acts to avenge the killings by the Jihadis, cross border terrorists with the help of extremists in India who happens to be members of the Muslim religion. The so called saffron terrorists vow in the name of Hindutva and hence the name of religion or the colour saffron attached to them.
