Terrorist Attacks and the Need to Maintain Peace and Harmony in Society
Terrorism is one of the major threats that a country faces today. We now live under a constant fear of violence and death. The common man is no longer safe. At every street corner, lurks the threat of an imminent terrorist attack.
Lack of education, employment opportunities, poor economy and religious differences are some of the factors that give rise to terrorism.
Besides instilling fear for life in the common man’s heart, terrorist attacks also cause damage to wealth and property, affects economic growth and brings disunity even in peacefully co-existing communities.
But it is high time that we joined hands to fight and eradicate terrorism. India has always boasted of its unity in diversity. Keeping this in view, we need to spread the message of peace and harmony. However, it is important to first solve the social, economic and political differences.
Strengthening the intelligence network, proper policy formation and effective implementation of Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) are some of the steps that can be taken up to curb terrorism. Educating the masses and making them aware of safety measures are also necessary steps in this direction.
