Mussoorie: BJP said the unilateral move by Government of India to implement the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir has shifted international focus from Kashmir to terrorism. "Due to India's initiative, the focus has shifted from Kashmir to terrorism. Today, the world is divided into pro-terrorist and anti-terrorist camps," BJP general secretary Narendra Modi told reporters here. The terrorists have lost their ground as a result of the ceasefire and were now forced to talk. He, however, said it was for the Government to take a decision taking into account all aspects. Modi also urged the Government to draw up a strategy to ensure the safety and security of the Amarnath pilgrims.
