New Delhi: Asserting that terrorism is fast becoming a new form of warfare, Army chief, General Bipin Rawat, said on Wednesday that the menace is spreading its head like a "multi-headed monster" and is "here to stay" as long as countries continue to use it as a state policy.

Rawat, speaking at a panel discussion at the Raisina Dialogue in the national capital, also said that there was need to control social media as it was aiding the spread of radicalisation.

He said a different kind of radicalisation was being witnessed in India and in Jammu and Kashmir, where youth have been getting radicalised due to "misinformation, disinformation, and a lot of falsehoods on religion" being fed to them.
