Terrorism is one of the burning social and political issues of the world today. It has left destructive influence on the economy and security of the whole world. The people become frustrated and fearful because of terrorism. No person, No place, No object of value is safe from terrorist attacks. The issue becomes more complex when one tries to find its definition because one man’s freedom fighters are other man’s terrorists.
Terrorism is spreading in the world like a storm. People use violence in the name of politics, religion or ideology. This religious and ideological terrorism may be seen in Kashmir and Palestine. The injustice of the world powers is another cause of terrorism. The powerful countries misuse the weaker nations and take control of their natural resources. All terrorism directed against America is because of its unjust policies against the Muslims.
Terrorism, like other evils and crimes has its own effects. The life of an ordinary man gets disturb by the terrorist activities. It destroys the social, political, cultural, education and economic system of the country. No institution can flourish under the shadow of death and destruction.
The terrorists indulge in all sorts if anti-human activities. By attacking the prominent persons and places, the terrorists try to publicize their attack and attract attention of the world. If no one knows about these attacks, these will not produce the required fear. The 9\11 attack on American World Trade center is the living example of that publicity.
State-sponsored is worst form of terrorism. India and Israel are the standing examples of state terrorisms. The Palestinians are called as terrorists because they demand a land which belongs to their people. Same is the case with the people of Kashmir. The Kashmiris are titled as terrorist by India because the demand the right of self-determination. Every day many Muslims are killed, women are raped and old men and women are oppressed. It is the hypocracy of the big powers that no one takes notice of this kind of terrorisms.
All terrorist groups are criminals. Similarly, the states sponsoring terrorism are in human. They kill the innocent people to create horror. They fail to differentiate between good and evil. Most of the militants have their origin in evil and sin. They are cruel and don not spare even children, women, the old and week people. They have no religion, ethics or fellow-feelings. The world should become united to uproot terrorism.
