If it seems like terrorist attacks are happening more and more often, it's because they are. Last year marked the biggest annual rise in deaths caused by terrorism, with more than 32,000 people killed in attacks around the world. The Institute for Economics and Peace has compiled its annual Global Terrorism Index and looked at the figures from 2000 to the end of 2014. It found terrorism is rising dramatically and private citizens are increasingly the targets. But only a tiny fraction of terrorist attacks occur in Western nations, and of those, only one in five is perpetrated by Islamic extremists. Not surprisingly, where deaths caused by terrorism are increasing (Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria), there's a corresponding increase in people seeking asylum. About 70 per cent of registered refugees come from the 20 deadliest countries for terrorist attacks.

The Modi Government's Panama Siesta

Of course, in characteristic style, there is a lot of media spin given to cosmetic gestures -- it's like putting a lipstick on a pig.
