By By ANALYST SETH ABDULLAH, Associated Press AUGUST 30, 2017 – 10:45:13The Indian government on Tuesday said it has enacted a series of laws designed to crack down on militant groups that are planning attacks in the country.
The government also plans to introduce tougher measures for journalists covering security events, it said in a statement.
India is facing a wave of terror attacks, and police and paramilitary forces have been battling suspected terrorists since the 2015 terror attacks in Mumbai.
The government says the attacks have killed more than 2,000 people.
The attacks have raised questions over whether the government is targeting the right people, and the authorities say it is.
They say the security forces and paramilitary police are protecting national security.
The attacks have sparked a national debate about whether the authorities are doing enough to combat terror.
The new laws are aimed at punishing people who have committed terrorist acts.
The law requires any member of the armed forces or paramilitary police to register with the government and undergo a background check.
Authorities will also give members of the public the option of joining the armed police.
Authorities say the government wants to crack the country’s terrorism problem.
The country has witnessed the biggest wave of attacks since the 2001 attacks on the United States by al Qaeda in India, and many other terrorist attacks since then.
The deadly attacks killed more then 1,000 and injured more than 10,000.
