| January 8, 2015 | 10 Comments

Terrorism has created extreme fear in the hearts of every common man. Terrorist attacks are deplorable and reprehensible that touches the core of a society and negates the most basic human rights. However, it is shocking to note that there lays a very huge difference between terror attacks that are condemned and deplored globally and terror acts that are condoned or acceptable by the society.

  • There were 620,472 reported abortions in 2012; experts say the true number of abortions performed in the country could be as high as 7 million, with two-thirds of them taking place outside authorized health facilities.
  • A woman in India dies every two hours because an abortion goes wrong.
  • While terror acts that kill around 20,000 people are globally condemned and regarded as most barbaric, inhuman and cowardly acts, the society condones the deaths of several hundred thousand annually.

Female-Infanticide-21

There is no remorse, sadness or abhorrence for the deaths of 7 million fetuses that are aborted each year. Tobacco and Alcohol have created mayhem in the society leading to almost 70% accidental deaths, broken families and deaths by domestic violence but it flourishes as its sales results in a huge profit for the States. The society still participates in the dowry system knowing well that as many as 8000 brides are killed for dowry each year.

Shouldn’t the society condemn these deaths by prohibiting and abstaining from above terror acts.

What’s your say?

    Very true Fayazji! The society should stand against all the forms of terrorism. When every person finds himself/herself in every other person, every kind of terrorism will end without any effort…

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      It is truly very disturbing to note how much terror is unnoticed and ignored and thousands are killed each year due to some of the social evils that are accepted in our society.

      Thanks again Sindhoo for your kind comment.

  2. Akshar says:

    quite a research Fayaz sir. thumbs up to you!

  3. This is a very well articulated and researched post Fayaz. I agree with you. Terrorism sure has some vivid forms, all of which are condemnable and should be prevented at all costs. I guess the violent form catches more attention since it seems a little more infrequent compared to the others. In other words, there seems to be an unhealthy tolerance for the other kinds of terrorism!!

      Thank you Vinay for your kind appreciation. The condemned terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg while those acts that are ignored and tolerated are the ones responsible for millions of deaths which is very very unfortunate.

  4. Saru Singhal says:

    This post shows a dark side of society. All these should be condemned.

  5. Oh my god!
    That was quite a data…

    shame on such people… They are not humans.

      Yes Amita, millions are killed and the society has pardoned and condoned these killings. Not only that, even as of now, there’s a willing participation in a crime such a dowry which results in many deaths each year.

      Thank you Amita for dropping by and for your comment.
