And the pleasing answer to show that I am secular is its a very very good country which promotes Peace and Harmony.

No doubt terrorism exist here, but about 180 million people lives here so for your information only a few are violent which belongs to some countable conservative religious or political organizations. So for our government and law enforcement agencies concern, both are taking almost every possible action to overcome this situation. I am one of those optimistic who believe that soon these conservative Islamist groups will be changed because they also love their children as you and I do, just they need education and awareness.
