On the question of demonetisation as a weapon against terrorism, Karnataka was again very enthusiastic with 62 per cent of the respondents saying that it will curb militancy and only 16 per cent disagreeing with that proposition.

Odisha (57%) and Andhra (49.3%) were the other states positive to this notion.But Kerala was the most blasé about whether demonetisation will work against terrorism.

A mere 28.7 per cent said it will achieve that purpose, while 38 per cent said it certainly will not. About 32 per cent had no point of view on the matter.

The salaried class was optimistic that demonetisation will work against terrorism with 50 per cent believing so. While the other sections also skewed to the positive, students (41%) were surprisingly less confident that demonetisation will make a dent on terrorism.

One remarkable point about this question was the high proportion (24%) of people who had no view one way or  the other.This could be a reflection of the uncertainty about how black money relates with terrorism.
