“He, who kills a man, kills the whole humanity.” The Holy Quran
Terrorism means the threat or use of force against the civilians or armed forces for the political or personal interests. The terrorists resort to bombing, killing, high jacking and cross border terrorist activities and massacre. In this way, they cause the death of so many precious lives. The main purpose of terrorism is to destabilize a country politically, socially, economically and administratively.
Its main causes are narrow-mindedness, fanaticism, fundamentalism, intolerance and religious extremism. In so far as this problem is concerned in Pakistan, it has many reasons. First, the external agencies like RAW want to create instability in Pakistan.
Sectarianism is another major reason of terrorism in Pakistan. The people of one sect cannot bear the people of other sect. the open speeches of religious sentiments by the scholars against the other sects incite the people of other sects. That’s why, sometimes we see bombing on religious gatherings.
Third major reason of terrorism is denial of justice from police and other concerned offices. When innocent people are not done justice, they become negative in their thinking. As a reaction, they adopt the activities like terrorism.
Fourthly, sometimes the opposition party adopts negative attitude and makes such vicious designs for the failure of the party in the power.
The effects of terrorism are untold. Terrorism damages life and property on a large scale. Bereaved families have to face so many crises after the death of their dear ones. Terrorism creates panic and anxiety in a society. There are feelings of terror and sensation. The country cannot make desired progress. Economically, it goes to dogs and the foreign investors are not ready to invest in the country. The people lose their faith in justice. They strive to take the law in their hands. The party in power loses its popularity and the feelings of hatred are fostered among the people.
The role of Pakistan Army in any crisis has always been encouraging and enviable. In such formidable and serious situation our army did not lag behind. Under the leadership of General Raheel Sharif, Pakistan Army launched “Operation Zarb-i-Azab” against the terrorists four or five years ago. This operation has been going on successfully in Pakistan. Our army is determined to uproot it completely forever and ever. Many terrorists have been killed. So many terrorists have been arrested. Thank God, there is great decrease in the ratio of terrorist attacks.
After “The Peshawar Tragedy”, in which no fewer than 140 innocent children and teachers were killed ruthlessly, special precautionary measures are being taken. The teachers and the students are being trained in case of terrorism threats and attacks. Warning signals are being installed so that all the individuals present in and around the building may be warned.
It is said that there are some moments or incidents which change the fate of nations. I think this tragedy was a blessing in disguise as it has united the nation. A few years ago, “Dharna Politics” was going on. There were so many crises in the country. Everything was worsening day by day but now the things are getting better. The whole nation has united to fight against terrorism.  Thank God, there is a great decrease in terrorism attacks.
I would offer some more suggestions to curb terrorism from our society. First, illegal foreign entry should be eliminated root and branch. Second, religious tolerance should be promoted. To promote religious tolerance, the religious scholars should come forward and struggle to create unity in the nation. Third, social injustice should be checked with an iron hand. The honest officers should be appointed to maintain law and order in society. Fourth, poverty and unemployment should be overcome as soon as possible.
