TERRORISM – AN ACT OF COWARDICE :


Let me start off by quoting VIRUS’s dialog in 3 idiots…” LIFE IS A RACE….RUN! RUN! RUN! “ …….I was studying in 7th grade when I came across this say…I had a completely different opinion because the crux of the movie focused on the competition among the students….But then.....In 2014, When I heard about the terrorist attack on innocent school children in Peshawar….I understood what VIRUS actually meant….He meant….” LIFE IS RACE….RUN! RUN! RUN!”....the faster the student runs, greater is the chance of his or her survival!
And this is how I define terrorism - An act of genocide, cruelty, violence...sanctioned under the name of religion. Terrorists are basically imps who use violence and threats as the medium to intimidate people for political purposes .They also plan their attack to seek attention and gain publicity. There have been many terrorist attacks in the history….the recent one was the ISIS attack on the world’s most beautiful city, PARIS. Men, women, children and worse…even infants… They all became prey to the ISIS…The ISIS succeeded in accomplishing its goal of propagating Islam. People have started reading the Bhagvadgita of Islam but not because they value the Jesus Christ of Islam but because they value their own life more. They believe that knowing few verses from the Quran will save their lives from monsters who have misinterpreted the Holy Book of Islam for their own need and to succeed in their political deeds.
Innocent, adolescent, school-going children became prey to the Talibans in the Peshawar attack .Never in their wildest nightmares, they would have dreamt that they would be shot by vile monsters wearing a veil over their faces when they were busy writing their exams. Killing children is an act of cowardice and terrorists are “cowards” .And when Talibans were questioned about the heinous crime they had committed, All they said was “we did not kill children but we killed adolescent children and that the Jesus of Islam will be very happy with our offering and that we have rendered a great service by banishing anyone and everyone who tries to stab our religion”. Age isn’t a factor that can be stated as an excuse when you take someone’s life. Be it the death of an old man or an infant…life is life!
There is also an interesting story pertaining to the Taliban that dates back to the years between the late 1990s and early 2000…..The Talibans became notorious internationally for their harsh enforcement of their interpretation of Islamic sharia law, which resulted in the brutal treatment of afghan women……….They decimated the afghan civilians…boycotted the usage of UN supplies including food and adhered to Russia’s “SCORCHED EARTH POLICY” and burnt fertile lands and destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes….
 In many villages , they carried long knives and used it to slit throats and skin people. They stated that the aim of the Taliban was to create a secure environment where the chastity and dignity of women may once again be sacrosanct but they were the ones to rape women including adolescent girls and pregnant women .They starved people for their military agenda and used humanitarian assistance as a weapon of war .The Talibans were the people who treated women as child bearing machines and as sex toys!!!
My definition for ISIS , Taliban and AlQaeda – The so called terrorist organisation for men to quench their thirst and for men who fancy killing people .
The Taliban, ISIS and Al – Qaeda ran a network of human trafficking. They abducted women and sold them into sex slavery but they often claimed that the restrictions they placed on women were actually a way of revering and protecting the opposite sex “. OH TALIBAN! That claim was the joke of the millennium.
Some women preferred to commit suicide over slavery and died with their honour unbesmirched. Education was tabooed and girls were forced to leave schools and colleges. Those who wished to leave their home to go shopping had to be accompanied by a male relative. They had to wear the burqa 24*7. Those who disobeyed the imposed protocols were publicly beaten and flogged. Employment for women was restricted to the medical sector, because male physicians were not allowed to treat women and girls. Banning of employment of women led to closing down of primary schools not only for girls but for boys, because almost all the teachers were women. Confinement made women turn mad and depression became common. Taliban's misinterpretation of the Sharia Law has led to the legislation of child marriage in more than six countries.....Young girls were married off to old men....They were subjugated to their husband's wish and wants and were subjected to both physical and mental pain.
Place names including the word "women" were modified so that the word was not used. Women were forbidden to laugh loudly as it was considered improper for a stranger to hear a woman's voice. Women were prohibited from participating in sports or entering a sports club.
The world believed, that only the men and wind were , are and will forever be completely free and that the emancipation of women is a freedom worth fighting for and finally the Talibans in the Afghanistan were crushed to pieces .
The only way to defeat terrorism is to resist getting terrorized. Never and ever let fear rule your life even if you are scared. Malala Yousafzai, the embodiment of bravery, and the girl who did not want her future to be imprisoned inside four walls and just cooking and giving birth, sets a great example to this statement.
The Bhagvadgita of Islam has no verse stating that the only way to propagate the religion or take control of the entire world is by slaughtering the lives of innocents. NO GOD CONDONES TERROR! Be it Allah or Jesus or Vishnu or Shiva or Buddha.
There is a reason Ramadan has the name RAM and Diwali has the name ALI. When the festivals of different religions are named in a way to promote harmony….then why don’t we forget the differences in our traditions and customs and stay united ?
