Background:In the last decade , when the Terrorists attacked World Trade Centre, in theUnited States popularly known as 9/11 attack, the terrorism has been adopted as a means to meet the demands of the terrorists.Terrosrist believe that by horror killings of innocent people,the Governmebnts can be forced to be bowed down to succumb to their pressures.Despite the lives of the innocent people being involved, terrorism has not been allowed to raise its ugly head. Terrorist acts by terrorists are acts of desparation & frustration. Terrorists know no other way to get their demands met except resorting to violent means.
Present blast:India is also becoming target of terrorists in recent past. Indian Parliament was attacked by Terrorists in 2001 convicting one Afzal Guru to death sentence. Responsibility of the present blast is owned by HARKAT -UL- JEHADI- ISLAMI claiming terror bombing for the release of the convict Afzal Guru . Present bomb blast on delhi High Court on 7th September, 2011 is the second in quick succession just within 100 days of the earlier mild attack, resulting in 11 deaths and 72 injuries.Present attack is the third worst terrorist strike since Nov. 2008 Mumbai attack.Number of terrorist attcks on the Capital since 1997 has gone upto an alarming 30.Present attack in Delhi is 19th attack in Delhi in 15 years. Attack on Delhi High Court has shocked the legal community as well as the common man . Attack on Citadel of Justice is antithesis of Rule of Law & cannot be tolerated by any Civil Society.
Consequences:Terrorism is a crime that affects all.India is a peace loving Country believing in SECULARISM which teaches tolerance towards all RELIGIONS. Any sort of efforts to create hatred among any sections of Societyis not permitted under our Constitution.Freedoms guaranteed whether of Speech, assembly,or of religion are not absolute under our Constitution. All Art. 19 freedoms can be curtailed or restricted in public interest. Lawful demand of any group can be met only by lawful means.Anybody indulging in criminal activities or any Organisation supporting them is bound to be punished by law of the land.
Conclusion:Terrorist attacks on Governmental Institutions are of senseless violence exposing loopholes in security system which has an inadequate and incapable intelligence trocitiesgathering system and a weak counter-terrorism mechanism. Had CCTvs been installed in delhi High Court as planned , there was remote possibility of the criminal act being repeated. Such acts are condemnable by all sections of Society and affirms that our shared struggle continues against those who would commit such attrocities. Law has its deterrent effect & strong and stringent measures are the need of the day to Counter such efforts in future. Such acts are eye-openers for the future & we all concerned have to find ways and means to combat such repetitions.A strong United Nations is the need of the day to counter terrorism & deterent measures are to be adopted by it to counter the TERRORISM which has assumed an international stature to protect all humanity and their well preserved HUMAN RIGHTS. The United Nations must see to it that the faith of the humanity should not be shattered due to its inactiveness & inactions. If United Nations finds it impossible to counter terrorism , then the time has come to replace it by an alternative &efficacious NEW WORLD BODY on the pattern of United Nations
