Internal Security Challenges and Laws in India: Call for Chapters
Internal Security is one of the important components of India's National Security. Initially, it was confined to maintenance of law and order, containment of communal violence and in very few cases, counter-insurgencies. India is a country, which has been faced both an external aggression as well as internal disturbances from the day of its birth. Threats for India's Internal National security have many faces i.e. Insurgency, Terrorism, Communal Violence, Caste and Linguistic Violence. The rise of fundamentalist forces is posing the most serious threat to India's security. Many legal and judicial steps have been taken to fight all these threats but at the same time threats are changing their faces with the time. Thus, the concept of the Internal Security, threats and laws related to thereto are in immediate need to be addressed.
