India 6th among nations most impacted by terrorism in 2014

BACKterror-alertAccording to the Global Terrorism Index 2015, India ranked 6th out of 162 nations most affected by terrorism in 2014.

In India the two deadliest Islamic terrorist groups in 2014 were Lashkar-e-Taiba who were responsible for 24 deaths and the Hizbul Mujahideen who were responsible for 24 deaths the same year.

While India continues to be among the 10 countries most impacted by terrorism, 2014 was the first time since 2000 that India did not feature among the 10 countries with the highest fatalities from terrorism, which is due to the growth of terrorism in other countries more than to an improvement in India.

In 2014 some 70 percent of the attacks in India were non-lethal.
