Do we really want to end terrorism?

How terrorists get arsenal to cause havoc across the globe and how to stop these supplies first should be the focused line of action if at all the nations are serious to put final end on terrorism. War against terrorism is mere an illusion unless such supplies are not stopped. The terrorists and the nations sending army or air attacks on the terrorist camps would only mean benefits to the arm manufacturers, dealers, smugglers and funding agencies.

Terrorism has become a global problem, a sever threat to the humanity. Today Islam is blamed for all the incidents of the terrorism, Taliban is now replaced by ISIS…tomorrow some other organization will replace it. But chain of the terrorist activities won’t come to ultimate halt.

Paris attack made global headlines causing agony and fury across the globe. But Boko Haram remains mostly un-discussed as they are causing havoc in “less civilized” countries.  Actually, in 2015, every day world in some or other part of the world experienced ambush, bombings, kidnappings, inhuman killings and suicide attacks. After Paris incident world seemed suddenly awakened and has declared war against terrorism, especially ISIS.

ISIS is using mostly American origin arms, from automatic rifles to Rocket launchers. It is said that they have acquired those weapons from the Syrian-Iraqi army men, Saudi Arabia and China. There is well established chain of the supplies and its distribution. Britain is said to been arming Kurdish people to fight against ISIS. Getting hold of weapons by stealing is a myth. What about ceaseless supply of ammunition? They must be smuggled in. How Maoists of India get hold of arms and ammunition? It is well known fact that from China via North-Eastern states they are smuggled and distributed amongst Maoists. The facts and figures shows that India lost double the people so far than the people, including soldiers, died in Maoist attacks. US have been supplying arms in Iraq with a futile hope that they will be used against ISIS. Rather it has become a major source for ISIS to get modern weaponry.

Having fundamentalism (Muslim, Maoist or any other for that matter) major reason behind any act of the terrorism is the thing that does have ancient traits. The problem with us is, to fight out terrorism and stop killings of the innocents, the priority should have been to stop supply of the armaments to any such country/region, even for the lame reason that such people will fight out terrorist groups! For example US supplied arms to Iraqi army to wage war against ISIS. It is doubted that the some part of those arms, intended for Iraqi army reached in hands of ISIS. This is superficial truth. America (and its friends) and Russia have been arming the terrorist groups alternatively. Russian war against ISIS and now France and allies participating it a great joke on humanity.

The lobby of arm manufacturers is strong in US. Russia too possesses equal ability to produce arms. China too is in the race to increase supplies wherever possible. They use all means, even smuggling them, to the destination wherever possible trouble erupts.

Under the circumstances I would like to say that the war against terrorism is a lie. Warlords don’t wish at all that the terrorism should be eliminated from the face of the earth. Rather they are grooming the terrorists of the future by killing terrorists of the present!

 Blaming Islam for all terrorism is okay. May be tenets of Quran are responsible for it. But then which religious book is devoid of these terrorist elements? Gita too specifically is aimed to wage war against Adharma…killing of human beings is necessary to establish Dharma…says Krishna ultimately! Now there is no clear definition of what Dharma or Adharma is!  But Hindu’s don’t go on killing people in mass proportion, though there religion allows it! The only reason is Hindu’s have no easy access to the weapons. Or else they too could have waged bloody war against Muslims as RSS have been preaching since its inception!

What we need is, if at all we, the global citizens, are serious to have freedom to live and let live, if at all we are serious to end terrorism, first of all the arm supplies has to be banned to the people/groups or nations those are up to cause disruption of global peace.

I mean that the arm manufacturers and their supply chains must be kept under constant surveillance and should be punished heavily if at all they are found to be guilty in supply to wrong people. The nations too, those support terrorism, should be banned of any trade with them. Let them suffer in isolation.

And, under disguise of Superpower, global policing of any nation too is needed to be stopped at first priority. Superpower means an ability to enslave others, politically or economically. The world nations should be well aware of the risks in wooing so-called economic, political and nuclear powers.

If terrorist get easy hold of modern weaponry the day is not far away that they get hold of nuclear weapons too! Fanatics are ready to die as they are suicidal and what even if whole globe is destroyed after them? The risk is heavy….not at all affordable to human being and other species.

To me, war against terrorism can only be fought and ended with fruitful results only if the supply of the arms and ammunition is curbed with global consensus and the smugglers are set to heavy punishments.

This is not impossible if the world is really up to fight out terrorism. If not….ISIS will never end….it would produce another hundreds from their blood!

Blood of the humanity will be spilled forever and the dream of ultimate  freedom of humanity will never come true.

We have to make the choice…!


  1. I think you missed one major point. Its not supply of weapons. Its supply of money to buy weapons. Who give money to ISIS? Who buy oil from them to support their organization. And that's exactly what Modi also said in G20. Stop finances to ISIS. Even if we assume that some countries supply weapons to ISIS, its not for free. ISIS can afford to but them. Also check role of Saudi in all this. They never openly oppose ISIS. However, the moment Shia militia became powerful in Yemen, they invaded that country. So its not only superpowers who fuel terrorism. Its religion. Also try to answer my questions on your favorite Swarna Bharat Party and Iraq's oil supply.

  2. Hi Sanjay Sir,

    Great article as usual. But I would disagree with some of the points. The question is "why" are some countries supplying arms to terrorists than "how". The "why" is always political in nature.
    As they say, "Someone's terrorist is someone else's martyr".
    Hence supply of arms to terrorist is never going to stop. As long as we have people with ambition to conquer the whole world, terrorism will not end.

    Religion is an TOOL exploited by the globalists. There is no better excuse to whip up hysteria and create fear in the minds of people than religion.

    The larger question I think is that of Moral values. How come any country does not feel even a shred of guilt when they bomb innocent civilians/children in the name of bringing democracy or whatever flimsy reason they give? Madeline Albright was asked if killing more than million iraqis was worth it after it was known that Iraq never had WMDs. Without batting her eye lid she said yes.
    Why and how are they not able to feel any burden on their souls of the millions of people they are killing directly and indirectly? Just for their utopia of one world government or whatever else they have in mind?

    When ordinary person kills somebody and shows no remorse, we consider him a monster. He is not considered a civilized person by anybody else and derided over. Can we apply similar moral values to an entire nation?

    If they can feel the burden of values or made to be felt, we can probably see a possibility of stopping terrorism.

    So I think the question is more of moral values that are deteriorating slowly (probably systematically).


  3. आप्पा-अरे बाप्पा , दहशतवादाची व्याख्या काय आहे भारतात ?
    बाप्पा- Terrorism is an anxiety-inspiring method of repeated violent action, employed by (semi-) clandestine individual, group or state actors, for idiosyncratic, criminal or political reasons- अजूनही बरीच पुढे आहे खरेतर !पण का रे विचारतो आहेस हे सगळे ?
    आप्पा- दहशतवाद का सुरु होतो ? त्यांचे म्हणणे कोणी ऐकत नाहीत , म्हणून ? प्रस्थापित सरकारे या दहशतवादी संघटनाना कायम मूळ प्रवाहात आणायच्या गप्पा करत असतात , चर्चांचे गुऱ्हाळ आणि खास सरकारी शैलीतला अपेक्षित निर्णय घेण्यातला विलंब हा इतका असह्य होत जातो की तरुणाई नको ते पाउल उचलते , आणि दहशतवाद जन्माला येतो !
    बाप्पा- खरे आहे .आसाम , नागा , नक्षल ,येथील अनेक संघटना या केवळ निराशेपोटी हिंसक बनत गेलेल्या दिसतात . रेल्वेचा संप आठवतोय ? जॉर्ज फर्नांडीस काय भाषा करत होते १९७५ साली ? कोणतीही डावी संघटना अपयशी ठरत गेली तर त्यातून जहालवाद पोसला जाउन त्याचा शेवट या सिस्टीमच्या विरुद्ध पाउल उचलून त्यांना वेठीस धरण्यात होतो.
    आप्पा- त्यामुळेच अयोध्याकांड दहशतवादी कृती ठरू शकते ! बंगला देश मुक्ती फौज हि पाकिस्तानच्या दृष्टीने दहशतवादी संघटना ठरू शकते , आणि शिवाजी महाराज औरंगजेबाच्या नजरेतून दहशतवादी ठरू शकतात . याला काय उत्तर आहे ? जनतेची स्वप्ने म्हणजे काय ? दहशतवादी संघटना जनतेच्या भावना हिंसेतून खरोखरच प्रकट करत असतात का ?
    बाप्पा- आणि ही न सुटणारी , किंवा न सोडवली गेलेली कोडी आंतरराष्ट्रीय पातळीवर सोडवण्याचा प्रयत्न विफल होत जातो त्यावेळेस दहशतवादी संघटना , लोकप्रिय होत जाउन त्यांचा एक वर्ग तयार होतो , देवाण घेवाण सुरु होत . आणि आंतर राष्ट्रीय दहशतवाद हा प्रोफेशनल बनत जातो,काही पिढ्यांपूर्वी मुद्दाम एखादा विषय चिघळवत ठेवल्यामुळे त्या जखमेचे रुपांतर असाध्य रोगात होते , काश्मीर , प्यालेस्ताईंन ही त्याची उदाहरणे आहेत. तुल्यबळ सत्ता समोरासमोर असतील तर वेगळे घडते . क्युबा ,तैवान हि तशी उदाहरणे आहेत .
    आप्पा- काही ठराविक विचार एकसारखा समाजात फैलावत प्रचंड प्रचारकी स्वरूपात दहशतवादाची पार्श्वभूमी तयार केली जाते . संजय सर , पाकिस्तानने काश्मीर प्रश्न आपल्या ताकतीवर सोडवता येत नाही हे ओळखल्यावर दहशतवाद सुरु केला हे खरे आहे का ?एखाद्या देशाला एक हत्यार म्हणून जर दहशतवाद पोसणे , हे पूर्ण लष्कर पोसण्यापेक्षा सोयीचे जात असेल तर विरुद्ध देशाने हा दहशतवाद कसा संपवायचा ? हा खरोखर नाजूक प्रश्न आहे !

  4. आप्पा- मराठीचा अट्टाहास का नाही ? तुमचे चाहते इंग्रजीची मागणी करू लागले आहेत का ? बाप्पा- प्रतिक्रिया कोणीच करत नाहीत , फक्त नीरज आणि अमित , त्यातला अमित तर तुमच्यामागे हात धुवून मागे लागलेला असतो , तुमचे लाडके असल्या विषयात आळी मिळी गुपचूळी करून असतात ,
    तात्पर्य , मायबोलीचा वापर करावा हि नम्र विनंती !

  5. "The only reason is Hindu’s have no easy access to the weapons."..
    This is a simplistic explanation. Hindus as also Muslims exist in large numbers in the West, where access to weapons is easy & legal. However we haven't seen any Hindu terrorist shooting or killing people in US, whereas we see Muslim immigrants causing mayhem (Times Square bomber, Boston marathon etc.)
    The reasons I believe are
    1. There's no global concept of pan-Hinduism as there's in Islam (Ummah).. Thus any distant sufferings to Hindus do not affect local Hindus in any country, as they do to Muslims ,who get easily aroused by news from Palestine, Iraq etc.
    2. Hindus as a whole are less violent, probably because the karmic retribution concept took hold of the Hindu mind.
    3. There's no aim to establish global Hindu caliphate or bring Hinduism to every corner of the world
    4. Finally Hinduism has been made flexible, by getting rid of evil practices. Social reformers - Early saints,Phule, Ambedkar, Savarkar all have tailored or tried to tailor Hinduism to the common masses, by taking it from the control of priests and this has offered a safety valve to oppressed. Till date all the temples in India are controlled by the Govt. Pandharpur temple now has non-Brahmin priest.. Tell me if any mosque is under state control or if there has been talk of modifying islam to suit modernity?
