Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit on Thursday inaugurated a two-day international preparatory meet of the Non-Aligned Students and Youth Movements(NASYM) in New Delhi.

The meet, being attended by delegates and diplomats from over 10 countries, would discuss the impact of terrorism on civilisation.

“Terrorism has to be understood as a challenge to change the mindset. It is like a snake... you do not know when it can come and bite you,” said Dikshit while addressing the function here.

NASYM chairman Subhash Chowdhary said what was alarming is the way vulnerable youth and students were being drafted for heinous acts like terrorism.

“The recent lethal Mumbai attacks were a shocker to the world and what was alarming is that so many young people mostly carried out these attacks,” he said.

“I am sure that the international preparatory meet will address these larger issues, which will delve into the core of the problems and suggest measures that could make this world a safer place to live,” he added.
