Terrorism, an issue that plagues our world every minute of everyday. You never know when or
where a terrorist organization is going to strikeTerrorism is a societal issue which exists in society
at a global level.This issue is increasing day by day rapidly in all over the world. Terrorism is not
new and even though it has been used since the early times of recorded history, it can be
relatively hard to define terrorism. The unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and
intimidation in the pursuit of political aims is called TERRORISM. Terrorism is of many types like
bioterrorism, cyberterrorism, nuclearterrorism, naroterrorosm . Hunter S. Thompson said,
“Terrorists don't wear uniforms, and they play by inscrutable rules — The Rules of World War III,
which has already begun”. These different types of terrorism are differentianted on the basis
of the mode terrorist chose to spread menace .Like bioterrorism refers to the intentional release
of toxic biological agents to harm and terrorize civilians, in the name of a political or other cause
.Cyberterrorists use information technology to attack civilians and draw attention to their cause.
This may mean that they use information technology, such as computer systems or
telecommunications, as a tool to orchestrate a traditional attack. More often, cyberterrorism refers
to an attack on information technology itself in a way that would radically disrupt networked
services.Nuclear terrorism include attacking nuclear facilities, purchasing nuclear weapons, or
building nuclear weapons or otherwise finding ways to disperse radioactive material.Terrorism
financed by profits from illegal drug trafficking is called narcoterrorism. No matter what kind of
terrorism it is motive of all is same.

Terrorism is a forceful and unlawful method to achieve the desired goal. Targeting innocent
civilians during a war or peace time with the ultimate goal of creating psychological fear on
civilians. There are many causes of terrorism like political,socio-economic,external, religious
etc.Political causes of terrorism includes non-democratic setup of government, improper
government setup, absence of law and failure. Socio-economic causes of terrorism includes
injustice, illiteracy, poverty and unemployment, food insecurity, dissatisfactions and many more
others. External causes of terrorism is based on many wars like afghan war 1979, Iranian
revolution, Kashmir disputes and etc. Religious causes is one of the most important cause of
terrorism all over the world especially in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. Role of madarsas ,
religious intolerance, etc is the cause of religious terrorism.

If talking about the impacts of terrorism on society and economy we can say terrorism poses a
serious law and order problem and leads to disintegration of society. The incident of murder,
torture, mutilation, kidnapping and extortion create atmosphere of suspicion, fear and panic all
around. Life becomes uncertain. The terrorists kill unarmed civilians including women and
children. Organized crime and violence cause social disharmony. The inter relationship among
various insurgent groups and their foreign linkages bring illegal money and encourages smuggling.
Many insurgent groups collect certain percentage of money from the employees and businessmen
on regular basis. Economic development of the area comes to an end. Our government has to make
heavy expenditure to meet the challenges of terrorism.
Today the whole world is suffering from this sin .But the country which is suffering and
experiencing the maximum extremities due to it that too so closely is Pakistan. Most the terrorist
associations claims themselves to have their hubs and headquarters in Pakistan .so we can say in
the present era Pakistan is the country who is facing the problem of terrorism and terrorist
activities the most. There are many terrorist organizations in Pakistan who involve in the terrorist
activities and terrorism. Within the passage of time terrorism increasing day by day very rapidly
in Pakistan. Everyday more than one such incidence occurs which include bomb blast, killing
innocents, traffifing , misleading young generation in the name of religion and god , social
injustice to women and much much more. And in this even the government of Pakistan is
helpless to cease these activities in the country and itself is facing so mamny chalaenges globally
due to it.

In India, terrorism struck in the recent past in one form or another, especially in Punjab,
Assam, Darjeeling and other States. Now recently it began showing teeth in Kashmir also. These
people are directly being sponsored by a neighbouring country. It has put the people in extreme
difficulties wherever the menace has erupted. The newspapers are filled with reports of violence,
murder, explosion, shooting. In these terrorist activities hundreds of innocent men and women
are killed. Many official building are either destroyed or burn to ashes, for no reason. Today it
looks uncertain how long this lust for blood will continue. But it is rather obvious that these
people have no other reason for the terrorist activities than creating menace among the people.

Several steps are now taken all over the world to control these activities like establishment
of anti-terrorist forces to battle terrorism. The countries like Britain, Russia, and Germany have
their own anti-terrorist forces. India has also established such forces to fight to terrorism. The
police and sundry Para military forces have been present in certain areas of the country where
violence is at worst. India has not taken steps to check the terrorism in her own country but also
helped her neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka to fight them.

Terrorism is just a word in English, but it is a hazard for mankind. And a threat is of every
second no matter where you are , what are you doing , how much good deeds you have done and
how much you would experienced if some day some selfish people; working with some super
selfish useless orginisation ;would not have come and destroyed it in seconds without any second
thought. Our life is a game of some seconds in the hands of these terrorist . But shouldn’t it be
destroyed forever we want mankind to live a life without any fear and every individual must
progress without any constraint. Governments of many countries are taking strict actions against
the terrorists and the organistaion working on them.

Terrorism is the main problem of our country this time. Steps should be taken to tackle the situation
peacefully. The people involved in it are mostly our own people, our own blood. They have some
misconceptions and misunderstandings. These can be solved by getting them on the negotiation
table That’s not enough Everone should join hands together to stand and fight against terrorism to
make world better and more peaceful place all over again.
