Jaipur: Security analyst Shaurya Doval on Thursday said counter terrorism is not just the exclusive domain of the state and added that it was important for a society to be involved in this fight.

" Counter terrorism is not just the exclusive domain of the state. It is a wider thing of the society and a society to evolve comprehensive counter terrorism strategies, it is important that the society be involved in this exercise," he told ANI.

"There are about 40-50 experts globally on counter terrorism participating in this conference. Reasons behind terrorism, cyber security, lessons from Mumbai, all are being discussed in the conference," he added.

He also said that the debate on counter terrorism needs to be taken to the civil society so that it can come up with solutions to fight terrorism.

Expressing concern over the growing influence of terrorist outfit ISIS, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh earlier said that the extremist organisation is inspiring innocent minds with intolerance and violence.

"The appeal of ISIS to the young educated people in spite of its medieval ideology is a cause of concern to the global community," he said while addressing the international conference on counter terrorism in Jaipur.

The three-day long conference on counter-terrorism has been organized by the Rajasthan Government in collaboration with India Foundation and Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice.
