Terrorism : Rebellion, Martyr or Criminal Psychopath
Terrorism- Wikipedia says it is a systematic use or threatened use of violence to intimidate a population or government for political, religious or ideological goals. People who execute such activities are termed as Terrorists. Is it so simple !!! I challenge the above definition of terrorism and terrorist . I would rather call it devils work and people who executes they are nothing else than a criminal psychopath.
Today we call it terrorism reason we are leading a simple happy life under a democratic ,republic rule. But if the wiki definition is true then, when the same type of events happened before year 2000 it was called War of Independence. In some other countries it was also called civil war.
A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same state or country, or, less commonly, between two countries created from a formerly united state. The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region or to change government policies.
Images of civil war and its result.
Fight/ War is nothing new . From the evolution of Mankind , war is going on. Sometimes for land , sometimes for power, even for justice. Whenever a war took place ,massacre has taken place. Leaders fighting innocent people in the form of soldiers, civilians have been slaughtered , sometimes for achieving or else for protecting something. History itself is the evidence. And to be honest a war or battle has been won when a systematic plan has been successfully executed under a leader.
Situation of civilians when soldiers are at war.
Every day we are still at war . At the border of the country every day a soldier is fighting to defend his kingdom or country . And if a soldier is fighting to defend, another soldier is also there attacking for his kingdom or country. Every soldier doesn’t matter which country he belongs to, which religion he belongs to , or whatever the cause he is fighting for – is a son/daughter, a brother/sister, a father/ mother and so on many roles they play in their life along with being a soldier . And when a soldier dies someone loses a son/daughter, a brother/sister, a father/ mother and so on.
It’s not only a death of soldier . It’s a death of many relationships. Isn’t that terrorism ? If I correctly remember monologue from William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, spoken by the melancholy Jaques in Act II Scene VII “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.”
Is it something different than terrorism ? But the soldier who died defending us we call him a SHAHID (शहीद) – a martyr. And the guy who attacked us caused so much panic we call him a terrorist/ rebellion. But have you ever thought the guy / the soldier attacked us in his/her – kingdom/country – he /she is also called a martyr.
If this is so then what is actual terrorism ? How can a single person be called both terrorist and martyr in different places. … Point to think….. think different , think as you are a spectator neither the cause nor the victim as a third person just think …..
I would say it was always about power, it is and always will be about power. Whatever the cause be , be it religious or ideological it’s the power acting behind it.
It is something like suppose a place where many people are living together no food , no water or medical supplies. No one knows what to do. It’s like a hive every one willing to survive but none knows how to survive and in this time a single man stands up with a bit of courage he works out some solution and explains to some more people , people who agreed started to follow him. He with his small group of followers executes something in a way in which many people gets benefited and thus a leader is born.
Now suppose this happens within a country/ kingdom. Country / kingdom already has a leader but a small group of people who were suffering, unnoticed by the leader of the country/ kingdom gave birth to another leader who starts fighting for his small group of followers – for their rights. Rest I hope you got the story.
But I know where you people will disagree with me. Leader fighting for rights of his own people , such leader are not terrorist. Yes they are not they are rebellions in the eyes of governing body. But when they take up weapons in their hand and start harming innocent civilians to prove their point , they become terrorist to the governing body and to the people who are with the governing body.
But still the point remains we call that person terrorist and if this terrorist dies fighting , the follower of this terrorist will always think him as a martyr. Eventually a leader will fall another rebellion will stand up as a new leader. They won’t stop until they get what they want. It’s like a chain reaction .
What’s the solution to this scenario !!!!! Anyone ?
Contradictory moment. A non- violence movement can be heard or even cannot be heard by the governing body but a violent movement is always heard by the governing body. It draws the attention of the people saying – ” listen to me now . if you don’t listen we will make you listen to us by hurting you ”
Truth is when you actually fight and there is an objective to achieve you really don’t hurt people until you are bound to . But the people we call terrorist are actually criminal psychopath . They hurt people create a massacre and then they try to justify it with a cause or agenda.
Does these above pictures state any form of agendas or cause ?
Terrorism is a result of war, what ever kind of war it be what ever reason stands behind it . A war can never be an initiative to fulfill some agenda of political, religious or ideological goals.
And as far as so called terrorists are concerned they are criminal psychopath. They are coward to sit down ,talk and sort things out. So they harm innocent people to prove their agendas. Such criminal psychopath should never be entertained . And people , leaders or country supporting these criminal psychopaths should be eliminated , then shall we have a peaceful earth to live in.
