Who Produces The Terrorist?

Raj K Pandey, MBS, MA

Ignorance, poverty and vanity make many soldiers since there are no rules for necessities. Hence,
when two people have similar qualities and problems but not develop or solve to some degree, if
they work as equals, it is possible to raise the level of less-developed partners. The liking minds
become organized and choose a final alternate to change their lives as last attempt-do or die!
Same mob, which has many heads but no brains, acts as an anti-system force with a trust that one
for all and all for one. The mob thinks that it is an only organization where they can get justice,
value, respect and freedom. The mob starts in understanding the meaning of their organized
energies since their duty determines the destiny!

The terrorists, therefore, are the group of organized frustrated individuals, who could not use
their energies in a constructive manner so that they choose the destructive! The existing faulty
system in a nation creates the crimes but the terrorists commit them. When people cannot easily
tackle the more complicated challenges bigger than their capacities, they choose any means to
face them. In the context of Nepal, the weakest group of people, who used to think their life as a
matter of chance or luck, unconsciously started in choosing their life in a different way, with the
expectation that they will fight another war which will be the last one but the best one-do or die!
Evil does not naturally dwell in any part of the world; it is a by-product of perception, reaction,
interpretation and how people respond to it. Backward societies are the most fertile lands for the
terrorists where consist highly destructive minds because they hardly get any places to use their
creativities. The more they develop the negativity, the more destructive they are for the societies.

Developed countries and the system machinery will be faultless if they avoid possible harms by a
creative manner and they will also be blameless if they realize the danger and forth coming
struggle against the global terrorism. To overcome the world terrorism, we have to declare a war
against the world poverty, negativity, frustration, destructive perceptions and thoughts among the
people. For this, we have to give them value, respect and utilization of their untapped energies.
We must also win over our own attitudes and make ourselves more liberal so that we can respect
others. Those who know others are wise; those who know only themselves are enlightened. If we
know others and ourselves, we will never be engaged in any conflict but if we do not know
ourselves and others, we will be in danger as same thing is happening in Nepal in these days.

The weapon has never won any wars in totality rather it increases the number of enemies in a
long run. If we abolish a terrorist by using the armed force, it will multiply the number of foes in
a geometrical ratio such as 2,4,8,16,32. If, let us suppose, the government killed me in a charge,
slowly all my family members, relatives, colleagues and the well wishers will negatively accept
the bitter fact and ultimately develop the negative feelings towards the ruling system and some of
my relatives will also act as an anti-system force. The exactly had happened in our country at the
very initial stage of the Maoist insurgency prior a decade.

Moreover, what will remain the differences between government and the terrorist, if government
also choose the same destructive way in the name of peace keeping in nation? Government will
be a legal super terrorist, who has rights to use the people’s resources, too!
Love begets love and the haters multiply the haters so that we should use our brainpower and
liberal attitudes to overcome the Maoist problem in the country. The terrorist as branded by the
state has not chosen the final - do or die alternate without any determined motives because only
strong reasons make the strong actions. If the government machinery of Nepal still ignore them,
than no disaster is worse than to underestimating the opponents. The King and the political
parties have repeatedly committed mistakes for not seriously addressing the Maoist problem
which may eventually proved counterproductive to all the existing power centers of the country.

The present constitution of Nepal is mainly efficient and effective for its makers so that they
always insist in continuing them, which are indirectly beneficial to retain the state power on their
hands. It is, one the other hand, important to understand the implications of how the beneficiaries
of the existing systems react to the change. When people’s sense of security is based entirely on
statuesque and particular state of affair, then they can hardly avoid the upset when changes take
place. This is exactly like a gambling where nobody wins until somebody looses. The elite class
of Nepal does not like to loose the game at any costs so that they also have a kind of fear within;
it is not for an authority but they affaire to loose it. They, as a result, never allow an opportunity
to downtrodden, women and socially excluded communities to bring them into the mainstream of
the system. Things, however, cannot remain the same forever and must eventually alter so that at
anytime the excluded class may convert themselves into the terrorist against the system.

Someone may have a good without having any means to achieve it; another may have power to
achieve the great things without the direction to guide it. The one who has the goal but lacks the
means may become an idle dreamer; the one who has the power but lacks direction may become
a bull. Only when a person has both capacity to accomplish the work and a worthy aim to guide
it can then be perfect in his action. It is not enough to have great qualities and energies; we must
also have management of them. If we mobilize unused energies of the excluded communities in
constructive activities, it will be highly beneficial for the nation building process of Nepal.

Overall progress in a group or an organization or a society cannot take place through the single
efforts and actions of an elite class alone, even if the elite really has super capacity. It is essential
to include less powerful and other talented people/societies, too so that all can develop through
energy of pooled abilities. This can only work if solidarity is express in understanding and
action. All should focus in understanding what is to be done over the time and how it can be
accomplished through cooperative efforts of all; inequalities can be conquered and extreme
polarization can be avoided. Solidarity and mutual cooperation are needed in promoting equality
and social justice, which strengthen global partnership.

Compassion and cooperation lead to future success because the cooperation is nothing we do to a
person but it is something we become with a person. It is by the sympathetic interaction and
sharing of people with different qualities and the characteristics so that collective development
can take place with the great effects. I strongly recommend that all elite class who hold the state
power from the centuries should accept others with tolerance. The elites should go in search of
poor, learn from them, plan with them, serve them, begin with what they have and build with
what they know. Finally, none can stop the positive transformation in Nepal for nation building.
