#All countries in Asia is working forward to make sure that 21st century becomes Asia's 21st century except one country.
#There is 1 nation in Asia whose aim is this century does not become Asia's and is associated with terrorism.
#Question is not only about India, everywhere this is one country which is exporting terrorism everywhere.
#Wherever terrorism is happening across Asia, the affected nations are blaming only 1 nation.
#Whenever news about terrorism comes, news also comes either the terrorist came from there or like Osama went there after the act.
