The extreme growth of terror and terrorist activities has begun to worry the whole world. The growing rates of terrorist activity in Afghanistan, Pakistan and around the world have become a bold challenge. To end the terrorist activity from the face of the earth, the world’s leaders must give it a top priority in order to live in peace. Today’s terrorist activity is not only polluting the Asian countries but rather it has spread throughout the globe.
In fact, it has become a serious disease for today’s generations in the world and it is even worse than today’s international economic crisis. Terrorism is an international problem and it can be only defeated by international cooperation.
As it is said, “The growth of terrorism is the world’s worst threat to the human security in all which can never be justified. Seeing their new and modern tactical terrorist activity, it needs a new global strategy for the global security in order to set back their strategies of tactical war against us.”
It has been widely believed that they have neither respect for these god-fearing people nor they belong to any particular religion, only to make an excuse, they misuse some respected religion only and only to achieve their particular ambition at the cost of bloodshed and genocide.
We all know that this has become a serious threat to our beloved world. To make sure that we live in peace and prosperity, we must put an end to their extreme growth. Unless we act globally, we wouldn’t see peace, stability, and progress in Afghanistan.
In the meantime, it has become a threat for the civilized countries too now that shocked and scared the whole world; imagine if it has been in the international countries for decades what would it really cost? In order not to forget discussing the huge and ugly impacts that it left on the so-called country, I would like to include Afghanistan where terrorism has been circulating in the region for more than three decades. In order to understand, just compare one-day attack with four decades and calculate it to see the impacts and vulnerability that it leaves.
The approval by all the nations of the world is so certain that the world has to fight against terrorism so that the dream of the world for peace, prosperity, stability, civilization, and brotherhood can be achieved by ending the world’s worst terrorist networks wherever they are designing their attacks on the innocents.
Observing the great destruction of the terrorist activities, in the international meeting board of developed and developing nations, the core focus of the meeting ended on ending terrorist activity. It has been declared that to establish a permanent peace in Afghanistan, the world would be to put a full stop on terrorist activities.
Despite spending billions of dollars on war against terror, the terrorist activity persists to continue in many countries, perhaps, will be there. It will go on in many other upcoming years, in Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Africa, Central, West, and South East Asian countries as it is getting accelerated day by day and the late terrorist attack in India and Norway are enough to be the evidences.
In spite of a very tough security system in India after the late terrorist, attack on Mombai at Taj Mahal Hotel, On 26th November 2008 that killed 167 people including the foreigners most of whom were the citizens.
Continuously, the other terrorist attacks in India, on Wednesday July, 2011 that killed at least 21 and hospitalized 113 people after the blasts, according to the Maharashtra, Prithviraj Chavan and the current devastating terrorist attack in Norway by a fanatic on the 23rd of July 2011 that killed 90 innocent people and sent a wave of shock and surprise across the western world.
The worst of all, the very recent attacks, Mazar-e-Sharif, Kandahar, and Kabul on the day of Ashura that killed more than 100 and left 194 injured. These are the most crucial parts of terrorist games that we daily witness.
Seeing the innocent deaths of these people, now the world must realize that the terrorists are also capable of taking and harming lives and prosperities of the world further. The world must also perceive that terrorism is an old growing form of the war, which had to be dealt equally in a possible new form by the help and participation of all nations in the world in unanimity.
However, the United States and its allies have much devoted in Afghanistan and other countries to break down the terrorisms, yet they haven’t succeeded to put an end to their continuous attacks and horror on the world and will sacrifice further because most of the Islamic countries were not supportive in this process to fight against terrorists. Perhaps, this is not a battle to be won by single few countries, rather it is a battle that must be supported and cooperated by all nations of the world, Muslim countries, and non-Islamic countries all must take part to settle it once and for all.
Indeed, the terrorists are best at hiding themselves, like the late Osama Bin Laden and seek game, modernize their fight, strengthen their tactics. In order to paralyze them forever, the world must understand the lesson and accordingly follow new methods or techniques to deal with such international crime doers. The exact way to achieve this objective, there should be proper, fair and justified that is the expectation of civilized, non-civilized and the world at large in the global war against terrorism now. Unless the root of terrorism that is a big threat to peace and stability for the world is not taken out, the world will continue suffering.
More than anything else, the biggest danger before the world community is the Nuclear Weapons. If it falls into the hand of the terrorists, who if it happens, could certainly use them without any contemplation of holocaust, unimaginably by anyone, or in that eventuality, the whole world could go under the control of terrorists that would make the world a real hell. This war now needs a very comprehensive plan to achieve it and everything must go very fast and intensively before the terrorists take the upper hand of the affairs, particularly in Afghanistan.
So, after the Al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in the New York and Washington on 11 Sept, 2001 the U.S war on terrorism was welcomed by all the nations in Afghanistan and in the world at large. And surely the war against terrorism depends upon the full cooperation of all nations but how long this will go on nobody is exactly sure.
Afghanistan has remained a battleground for some decades but has not been that ruined as compared to the time of Taliban. Now, the Jihadists ran to the West and North of Afghanistan, Kabul and slowly it will cover the whole region if the International community withdraws from the ground. Yet the war on terror is not over, it is just the beginning. Those extremists who have withdrawn terrorism know nothing but only Jihad. They are trained everywhere.
Above all, the extreme growth of terrorism from Afghanistan and from the world at large cannot be ended, unless the Islamic youths are given good education, training in some jobs and employed in good jobs. To put into a nutshell, the world must realize that this is not a game anymore. If today, the Terrorist activities are only used against the people in Asian countries, tomorrow will surely make ways to reach other Western societies. Therefore, to put a full to their further destructive movements, Afghanistan and Pakistan need an international cooperation.
