A democratic society is inhibited in its deterrent response to terrorism by the potential damage to the rights of abiding citizens. This book makes an interesting and in-depth study of many aspects of terrorism and is an absorbing and comprehensive treatise.
The scourge of terrorism is perpetrated by barbaric acts of fanatics, devoid of any respect for the sanctity of human life. The evil demands a tireless response with an unflinching resolve- both national and international - without which this poison shall grip the whole world causing untold destruction.
Hijacking and using passenger planes as precision-guided suicide missiles to destroy the hall marks of their own military and economic might have redefined the dimension, face and definition of terrorism to unimaginable proportions and challenges. Every terrorist has a psyche which motivates him to do something brutal since terrorism has no religion or nationality. Terrorists exhibit certain characteristics and to deal with them the law has been well crystallized. This book also focuses on terrorist groups - national and international - and discussed activities of Indian terrorists abroad.
