The biggest threat that India faces today

India being a developing country many more challenges than most of the developed countries in the world. It faces the daring challenges of hunger, population explosion, poverty and illiteracy, problems that have been affecting its growth in the last sixty years. But  the threat that is the most menacing of all is that of terrorism.

Terrorist groups amazingly justify that they are fighting for a noble cause– for the cause of their motherland, like any soldier who may be  fighting in the nation’s army. But this a dangerously erroneous argument that is fabricated to suit the unjust motives of terrorists. There is a  great difference between the soldier and the terrorist. A soldier takes the responsibility of his deeds but a terrorist never. Terrorists have derived their name from the very dreadful word ‘terror’.

There was a time when terrorism was a distant concept and to some extent was confined to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Then it started spreading. The next core area was north eastern India. Although the frequent rupture of attacks has considerably reduced, these spots still continued to be terrorist hotbeds. Indians today are barred from visiting these beautiful places of their own country.

Terror returned to haunt the country recently in the form of Bomb Blast when an unattended bag near the kitchen of German bakery was touched by a waiter at the place. At-least nine people were killed and 57 injured in German Bakery terrorist attack in Pune. It was specially haunting because it took the lives of innocent students and this has caused widespread angst and frustration amongst all students and teenagers.

Previously the country bled when the 2008 Mumbai attacks took place.  There were more than ten coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai, India’s largest city, by Muslim terrorists from Pakistan. The attacks, which drew widespread condemnation across the world, began on 26 November 2008 and lasted until 29 November, killing at least 173 people and wounding at least 308.

The saddest thing is that India faces terrorist threats not only from outside forces but also from within. One such instance is present day Bengal. Massive terrorist activity was carried out by the naxalites in Bengal during the pre communist era. In the present perspective Bengal has become the seat of active terrorist activity. Every day when we see the news channel there are hundreds of killing everywhere by some terrorist groups, especially in the regions where the socially backward class dwell. The most recent evidence of it is the sudden Maoist attack in Shilda where 24 eastern frontier rifle personnel and a villager were killed.

Assam has been the most volatile state in India for the last few decades. The ULFA has carried out several terrorist attacks in the region targeting the Indian Military and non-combatants. Assam remains the only state in the northeast where terrorism is still a major issue.

Terrorism is not only an issue in the Indian context but also on the bigger canvas of the world. Terrorism is a real threat to all nations in the world and is evident from the attacks that have occurred around the world including the 9/11 attack in USA, the omagh bombing in northern Ireland and the gas attack in Tokyo which constituted the most lethal form of bioterrorism ever committed. Wherever there are different groups of people, there are sure to be conflicting ideas. The human tragedies that result from terrorist acts are horrifying and the economical impacts that follow terrorism can be almost as devastating.

Being in a threat India has developed certain measures to curb terrorism like making more strict laws like POTA (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act) and keeping an eye on the sources from which money is drained to the assistance of terrorist activities.

Terrorism has become a global threat and needs to be controlled from the grass root level to the international level to make the world a better place to live in.
