Terrorism is our nightmare,unseen danger that may cost us our life.Terrorism is a criminal act,since no fight for justice can be justified by murders of innocent people.There have been several terror attacks in India,resulting in grievous loss of lives and properties.Without extricating the roots of terrorism our governments will never achieve positive results.The major areas where terrorist attacks in India are Jam-mu and Kashmir,east-central and south-central India and seven sisters.
Terrorism is a response to oppression,poverty and discrimination.Unemployment also have been a major cause due to which terrorist groups lure the young generation to it.Terrorism is an asymmetric form of conflict because it always divides all the participants involved.It is a strategy and a tactic,a duty and a crime a reaction to oppression and an inexcusable abomination.When human rights are universally respected terrorism will not have a justifiable sort under its feet.
Cultivate love,not hate in your heart.Try to understand what driver terrorists.Remember,terrorism is like a love triangle it is different from a terrorist's victim's or public opinion's perspectives.
