What is Terrorism?

terrorism02
Terrorism means the destructive activities taken recourse to by a group of people to coerce a government to yield to their demands.Terrorism nowadays is mostly used as a lever to achieve a political aim. It is the biggest menace faced by the inter-national community today.
The aim is to create a chaos in a country with ulterior political motives. Indian late Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi and army general Baidya fell a prey to the extreme acts of terrorism. Hijacking of planes, blowing up of railways and bridges and bus full of passengers all are instances of terrorist activities that killed hundreds of innocent lives. The memories of the explosion of the Air India aircraft “Kanishka” in mid-air, the attack on Parliament of India, 9/11 attack and 26/11 attack still haunts the citizens of India.
Kidnapping, hijacking of planes, cross border terrorism, cyber terrorism are growing day-by-day. The terrorists use terror as a weapon to fulfill their demands. The effect of terrorism in all cases is killing of innocent people or a large-scale massacre of property.
Such unwanted killings and destruction cause irreparable damage to a country. Terrorism should be dealt with ruthlessly with undaunted courage and determination. A group of senseless people cannot be allowed to hold a country to ransom. Adherence to strictness only will bring back a stable political and economic environment.
