Terrorism is not a new term, the word 'terrorist' and 'terrorism' that we hear today originated from the post-French Revolution of 1793, when it was called the reign of terror. The book 's concept of terrorism suggests that the core characteristic of terrorism is political violence, which seeks to achieve its goal by creating an atmosphere of fear and apprehension. At its Anti-Terrorism Meeting, the United Nations declared that "Terrorism is a major threat to international peace and stability". When talking about concept of terrorism, then, honestly, in this discipline, we do not have a common definition of "terrorism" because it is highly politicised and whether or not an actor considers terrorism depends on which side that actor is one of a particular problem. There are two ways that we can try and solve this issue, first of all a simple way to solve, and in place of thinking about terrorism in particular, you can also consider terrorist acts in your mind to turn back and think about a wider class about violence, namely political violence.

Since terrorism is not related to any race or religion and no country is exempt, no country can solve this problem on its own, but the international community, from governments to civil society to individuals, should work together to make a difference. Nobody likes to be frightened, and we were ready to get the anxiety to go away. So, we were calling for more protection. Over the last decade, it has become increasingly common for civil rights to be violated and for government agencies to spy on people, capture and store their personal information. Irrespective of whether you're a fan of right-wing or left-wing politics, this affects every one of us.

After 9/11, the US Administration concluded that the law has not kept pace with the technologies. Initially, the terrorist monitoring network was set up to intercept messages lined up with AL-QAEDA leaders, who were adamant that if the network had been in effect before 9/11, the hijackers might have been stopped, but then the new powers were being used to prove guilt by association. The FBI used immigration documents to recognise Arab and Muslim foreign nationals in the United States. On this basis, 80,000 people were forced to enrol, another 8,000 were called for interviews with the FBI, and more than 5,000 were locked up in protective custody. The lack of growth and sustainable government as well as alienation and inequality are both generators of terrorism and violent extremism, while at the same time discussing the root causes of terrorism as we defend human rights.

The power of human rights to unite is greater than the power of extremism to separate.

According to figures provided by the United Nations, there were at least 11,000 terrorist attacks in more than 100 countries in 2017, resulting in more than 25,000 fatalities and 33,000 injuries. More than 40,000 foreign militant militants from more than 110 countries may have migrated to join ISIL or AL QAIDA. They are either going back home or heading to old and new places of war, as technology makes it possible for militant organisations to distribute information and recruit online.

A real possibility to mobilise our efforts are the challenges of terrorism and violent crime and the main starting point is to seek holistic initiatives to the whole of society as key allies of civil society , young people and women. However, there is a query here about how to counter terrorism in India?

The reaction to this is that, as at 26/11, the National Investigating Agency was set up to counter terrorist attacks in future, India has always experimented a lot.

In addition to these various statutes, such as the Act on Terrorist and Destructive Acts (TADA), the Act on the Prevention of Terrorism (POTA), the Act on the Prevention of Criminal Activity (UAPA), the NIA Act, 2008, given the awareness of the essence of international terrorism that confronts us today, it is clear that a long-term plan is required to tackle terrorism, it must be recognised. The policy must build from our national interests and priorities for the defence of core values to integrate such core values as secular, independent, egalitarian, autonomous, territorial independence and socio-economic development, we should benefit from the experiences of the other nations. International terrorism cannot be successfully fought on its own, as has been our experience so far, all nations must join hands to fight it, Pakistan-sponsored proxy war must be more revealed and international pressure must be applied, we must more strongly stress the legitimacy of our cause and support for terrorism by these organisations, and action must be carried out by diplomacy and trade.
