Indian PM Narendra Modi warns of three major global threats - DW
Modi singled out three major challenges mankind was facing right now. He said the greatest threat came from rapid climate change and the resulting extreme weather conditions, natural disasters and rising sea levels which threaten the lives and livelihoods of millions of people around the world.

The prime minister identified terrorism, and the radicalization of people in many societies, as the second-biggest threat. Without providing concrete examples, he criticized world powers for, in his eyes, making the problem worse by artificially distinguishing between "bad terrorists" and "good terrorists."

India is going to be hit hard by GW as the country is heavily dependent on Himalayan snow pack for water.  To make things even more interesting the Indus river valley divides* Pakistan and India and a reduced water flow will heighten tensions twixt and 'tween 'em.

Considering both countries have nuclear weapons things could get quickly "interesting"

Given the willingness of extremist muslims and especailly hindus in India to go stamping around slaughtering people in the name of their religion, I think Modi should be looking internally for his terrorism problems.

But he won't cos his Hindu nationalism is part of the problem.
