New York, Nov 29: A young terrorist with Pakistan links launched an attack at a US university using his car and a butcher’s knife injuring 11 people before being shot dead by a police officer. The attack was carried out at the Ohio State University in Columbus by Abdul Razak Ali Artan. Artan had spent seven years in Pakistan after leaving his tive Somalia before coming to the US as a refugee two years ago. The attack turns a spotlight on Republican President-elect Dold Trump’s calls during his campaign for a temporary halt to Muslim immigration while screening procedures are tightened. Trump has since softened his stand, leaning towards heightened vigilance towards those coming from some countries linked to terrorism. While tiol leaders were reluctant to even call the incident terrorism, a Republican Indian American Ohio lawmaker, Niraj Antani, jumped into the fray with a challenge. Democrats see such acts as a result of the proliferation of weapons rather than the motivations. (IANS)
