Global Terrorism Essay
The use of violence and intimidation for the pursuit of political aims, is referred to as ‘terrorism’. This has become one of the greatest problems in most parts of the world today. It is the most dangerous thing to have hit numerous countries in this century. It’s ugly head has put an end to the concept of peaceful coexistence.
It is extremely wrong to try and force someone else into your way of thinking. I like eating potatoes, I should also respect the person who does not. If someone likes chocolate flavoured ice cream, he should not criticise me for liking the pineapple flavour. In short, as long as you are not harming anyone or causing a hinderance to society, each person should be allowed to choose his way of life.
Terrorism, which started in small pockets, has taken a global proportion. It has spread like wild fire, mainly in underdeveloped areas that are low in literacy and culture. Politicians looking for a quick path to power, instigate and inspire innocent youth with fiery speeches. Most often they use religion as an excuse – any person who does not agree with their beliefs, is a non-believer and should therefore be destroyed. I wonder which religious text or spiritual leader advocates the killing of another human!
All the major religions of the world strongly profess the path of peace and tolerance, and condemn any form of violence and hatred. If we look back in history, we see that of all the great civilisations that flourished, only those that practised tolerance and a peaceful coexistence, have survived upto the present day. All the others were destroyed.
Terrorism cannot and should not continue. The only thing it does is spread hate and bloodshed, it has destroyed countries and cultures; families have been wiped out and towns and villages have been razed to the ground. But finally hate destroys the hater.
