Write your abstract here. Managing Security Threat G. Ravishankar The crucial need of the hour is security. With the increase in terrorist activities all over the world, there’s an urgent need to tighten security arrangements in spheres of transport like Buses, Trains, Flights, Important religious places and crucial Government offices like Parliament Halls, Assembly Halls. In a climate of fear, some countries may run a heightened risk of not only the curtailment of civil liberties and human rights, but also of generalized racism and religious intolerance. Loose talk of a war to "rid the world of evil" lends dangerous credence to those terrorists who do believe the world is caught in an eschatological confrontation between the forces of good and evil. Resources that were gradually reallocated from defense spending to fund strategic, preventative projects in health, education, sustainable economic development, and violence prevention could help rebuild many local communities worldwide and start a process of establishing a new international security system, tackling the deeply- rooted causes of terrorism. Each time when attack takes places, people are alert for couple of months. Unfortunately, people, Police, Media and the Government forget gradually. Terrorists take this opportunity and carry out their activities without any difficulty. There’s no harm in checking the bags of even genuine people. We need to analyse the following facts thoroughly. Where the attack took place? How the attack is planned? Who are actively involved in it? The place of attacks and other crucial details are important.
It’s a a matter of great concern that in spite of repeated happenings of attacks, there’s no concrete plans by the Government of India. Not just India, UK, USA Iraq and other countries are affected by terrorism. The root of terrorism needs to be found out to thrash the network of terrorist activities. Can we have peace of mind to carry our normal activities without any tension? A comprehensive strategy under the auspices of the United Nations and linked to non-governmental organizations. To develop a comprehensive, multi-issue, preventative strategy There must be a high-level conference under the auspices of the UN. The world needs a new international security strategy that redefines security as more than military power: as economic security, sustainable development, social justice, and human rights. States should also support international agreements to ban chemical, biological, and toxic weapons; ban land mines; and limit the international small arms trade. An urgent issue is a worldwide campaign under UN auspices for the resettlement of refugee populations. Crucially, for an effective campaign against divisive forces to proceed in the longer-term, a reformed UN needs new models for non-government and citizen involvement in domains of global governance historically dominated by states.
