New Delhi: The government today said it has got intelligence inputs that a few Indian youths have left the country to join ISIS but their number is "miniscule".
"The government agencies closely monitor certain vulnerable areas for possible anti-national activities, including terrorist activities. In general, unemployed youth(s) are more vulnerable to propaganda by terrorist outfits.
"There are intelligence inputs that a few Indian youth(s) have left the country to join the ISIS. Their numbers, however, are miniscule," Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.
He said the government is committed to taking proactive measures to ensure that misguided youths of the country resorting to terrorism/extremism or any other anti-national activity are brought back to the mainstream and contribute to the process of national building.
