US has claimed that India is faced with a “high threat” from terrorism and asked its citizens to be vigilant, prompting New Delhi to assert that the country is a safe place and such an advisory was unwarranted.
“The United States Mission in India wishes to urgently remind all US citizens resident in or travelling to India that there is a high threat from terrorism throughout India,” the message said.
“As terror attacks are a serious and growing threat, US citizens are urged to always practice good security, including maintaining a heightened situational awareness and a low profile,” it said.
The message said, “Americans in India should be vigilant at all times and monitor local news reports and vary their routes and times in carrying out daily activities.”
The advisory asked Americans to consider the level of security present when visiting public places, including religious sites, or choosing hotels, restaurants, entertainment and recreation venues.
India is a completely safe country... India is a safe place, it is safer than any other country in the world.No need to worry about US tourists in india,India will take care of them.
