Terrorism new form of warfare: Army chief

New Delhi: Terrorism is becoming a new form of warfare and it will keep growing like a "multi-headed monster" till nations continue to use it as a State policy, Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat said Wednesday as he pitched for some control over social media to contain spread of radicalisation and terror-funding.

In an address at the Raisina Dialogue, India's flagship conference on geopolitics, the Army Chief said there should be talks with the Taliban so as to bring peace to Afghanistan but asserted the engagement must be without any preconditions.

In a clear reference to Pakistan, Gen. Rawat said a "weaker nation" has been using terrorists as a proxy to put pressure on other nations to come to terms with them, and warned against tolerating such policy.See P7
