New Rhetoric for damage control

Indian Express(Jan 19) carried the story titled NEW 'TERROR LANGUAGE'. The news item is as fllows:
The British Govt. seems to have embarked on a new strategy on labelling terrorosts and their recruiting agents, as security officials believe that directly linking terrorism to Islam is inflamatory and risks alienating mainstream Muslim opinion.

And the new rhetoric?
In future, fanatics will be refered to as pursuing'anti-islamic activity'

Another attempt at creating a new reality thru a new rhetoric.

Remember how secularism in India became pseudo secularism, ushering in a whole new trend in in Indian politics?
