India and Bangladesh may jointly host an anti-terror regional conference. It has become essential for regional forces to come together to explore measures to counter terrorism and check radicalisation that is increasing day by day. The idea was first mooted by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to build an anti-terror narrative in South Asia. This joint anti-terror meet between India and Bangladesh may also play an important role in India’s move to isolate Pakistan.

Most of the nations in South Asia are a victim of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism and support India in making a pressure on Pakistan to demolish all terror camps inside Pakistan border. In such a situation, a joint anti-terror meet between India and Bangladesh may also play a vital role in forming an agreement between countries of South Asia to build an anti-terror narrative. Scholars familiar with the developments said other Saarc nations that boycotted the Islamabad summit may also Joint anti-terror meet between India and Bangladesh.

Other South Asian nations may join the conference as observers but Pakistan, blamed by most Saarc nations for spoiling the atmosphere in the run-up to the now cancelled Saarc Summit in Islamabad, will be excluded from that list.
