Essay: Terrorism is the use of violent actions in order to achieve political aims or to force a government to act. Today the world is very much hurt with it. Terrorists use inhuman means to get their aims. There was a time when they took innocent lives by only bomb blasts. But nowadays terrorism has entered into a very dangerous phase. It has become so much scientific, organized and uncontrollable that even the governments are helpless against it. In America, on 11 September, 2001 two planes were used as missiles and two buildings were hit with them. Nobody could imagine that. With such dangerous acts of terrorism the world has become a very unsafe place.
It has changed forever. It is has become nearly impossible to tackle terrorism nowadays. “Terrorism has become the systematic weapon of a war that knows no borders or seldom has a face.” Jacques Chirac People and some organization commit acts of terrorism against their government. They think that they are being deprived of their rights. So to force their government they commit these acts of terrorism. It is a pity that even States use terrorism to get their political aims. They commit acts of terrorism in their enemy countries because they cannot openly attack them. Their enemy country suffers economically and socially. “Terrorism has no nationality or religion.”
Terrorism has many disadvantages. Firstly, the immediate effect of these acts of terrorism is that business activities of the country stop forthwith. Other countries look at that country in horror and break relations with it because doing business with that country is always full of risks. In this way the terrorist country harm the target country without invading it. Ultimately, the progress of that country stands still. Secondly, people feel insecure and the world does not look a safe place any more. People feel safe while staying indoors.
