Evils of Terrorism
Terrorism has been described as “the international violence by group or individual to achieve political goals”, by the experts in U.S.
The evils of terrorism has considerably grown over the years and not only a developing country like India but also the countries like US, UK etc. are affected by the acts of terrorism constituting bomb explosions, the indiscriminate killings, blackmails, hijackings, assassination of important dignitaries. All this is executed with terrible cruelty if the demand of money or a terrorists’ release is not accepted.
Although explosions and stray shootings are also terrorist acts, flight hijacking has come to be their preferred target for spreading terror among the masses of the countries. Terrorism is like a war, which is neither openly fought nor in a fair manner.
Terrorists believe in the power of bombs and the guns over dialogue. Extortions, robberies and support of evil regimes are the chief source of fund for terrorists to carry their operations.
Terrorists mostly recruit younger people in their group as it is easy to brainwash them. Mainly they aim to take vengeance against those whom they regard as their enemies or those who they think obstacles in the path of their goals. It does not matter to these elements whether their aims are illegal or unethical. The terrorist try to terrorize large numbers of people to have maximum impact.
Many steps have been taken to fight terrorism like cracking down on their centres and by arresting them. Due to the risk from terrorists, the securities at various places like airports, railway stations, and Government offices are kept tightened.
