Terrorism and human right


Terrorism and human rights are inter-related to each other because when one starts other violates. Terrorism is a global concern today and in true sense it has relation with the almighty. I have taken this topic only because I have been working on this topic since when I lost my near ones in the terror attacks from 1993 bombay , 2002 gujrat, 2004 and 2006 in mumbai and the latest one in november 26 in different areas of mumbai. Truly , this topic does not need a proper introduction but what it needs is a proper and rigid fullstop.

Terrorism itself is an attack on human rights. The direct linkage between terrorism and human rights was first recognized by World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna,1993, of the vienna declaration and its programme of Action stipulates that “ acts, methods and practices of terrorism in all its forms and manifestation as well as linking in some countries to drug traffiking are activities aimed at the destruction of human rights.

Some vital question of ethics, human rights, and value by means of dialogue between law and literature. Terror or terrorism has never been far from the consciousness of poetic culture since French Revolution and philosophers such as Burke and Kant were grappling contemporaneously with the curious compulsion towards terror of the modern age. Terrorism is a deliberate and systematic murder, maiming and menacing of innocent to inspire fear for political ends.

Terrorism according to me is a product of fanatical violence perpetrated generally in order to realise some political ends to which all humanitarian and ethical beliefs are sacrificed. It is a use of force, threat, and violence methods to combat to achieve certain goals that is aim to induce a state of fear in the victim, that it is ruthless and against humanitarian norms and that publicity is an essential factors in the terrorist strategy.

Defining Terrorism

Terror and terrorism can be viewed either from the perspective of the person who applies it or from the perspective of the person subjected to it. As Hegel observed that about the master- slave relationship, the possibility of exchange of roles always exists. Applied terror and terrorism as function of domination alters the human relation between the parties. Hegel sees this as a dialectical exchange with social as well psychological complications.

The relation between the force of terror as instrument of state. Terror here is in the service of the state. There is evidence that no human being can terrorize another human being without an exaltation which is the Jacobean's thought of “virtue”. Terrorism by unofficial groups against the targets in another state or within the state, if promoted or condoned by a government, may raise issues which are unlawful use of force by the state. Terrorism is a means to to those fanatics who uses this as one of the most valuable weapon against all the combined forces against it.

Factors Of Terrorism

This is a question which everyone has an answer and each answer varies from one another. This shows that how people are concerned about this threat. This threat is no js personam and has its effect in all spheres of life. In my project I will be dealing with various factors which promotes terrorism at large. These are

Politics Of Terrorism In India

The political systems are facing a major paradox at present. It relates to the stability of the nation- state which, with its unprecedented military strength and a large panoply of other security arrangements, has greater chances of fending off internal opponents and external aggressors. Thus the governments, in their eagerness to secure and maintain a desired degree of obedience and loyalty, have frequently directed institutionalized violence against their own citizenry as well as against other communities under their control.

Whose Human Rights Violation

The rights which are violated by the terrorist attacks on the innocent people and those who are involved in the terrorist group. It is a well known fact no one in this world is a terrorist by birth. It is the society and the endeavor taken by few fanatics' rather religious fanatics who washes the innocent brain which is supported by illiteracy and poverty.
