  • Yes it can

    In such cases, it is a blind irrational devotion to the cause that spurs the terrorist on so that he not only commits violent acts but is even is even zealous to justify his extreme violence. He may also find in his violence an adequate means to express his private anger.

    Terrorist often assume the garb of ‘urban guerrillas’, ‘resistance fighters”, ‘revolutionaries’ and others. The terrorist however unlike the guerrilla fighter does not seek to demolish political authority for the sake of creating an improved authority in its place; his activities are not outcome-oriented.

    Terrorist activities overlook conventional distinctions of person and place while guerrilla warfare is genuine warfare is genuine warfare against a stated enemy.

    Political assassins single out as their victims those individuals who are felt to be accountable for alleged misdeeds or for their anticipation in just institutions.

    While the assassin attempts to remove one office-holder so that he would be replaced by another pursuing more acceptable policies the terrorist-seeks simply to destroy.

    The terrorist more often than not proclaims his killings while the subversive postpones self-identification and bids for recognition. Sometimes, acts of kidnapping and hijacking by a person or persons can be mistaken for terrorist acts.

    The distinguishing feature is that such person or persons usually demand money as ransom and do not identify themselves with any terrorist group or cause. On the other hand all these activities may be employed by terrorists for their own ends.


    The terrorist resorts to sudden violence in order to achieve his political ends but this in it self cannot be, enough to condemn terrorism for all violence is not necessarily unjustifiable.

    A list of situations that might be held to justify violence would include cases of self-defence, prevention of threats to one’s own life or other’s lives and protection of individual or collective right to liberty. Violence cannot be condemned outright even if it is a type of force.

    But terrorist violence is deplorable mainly because it is randomly executed and is directed most often at the innocent or ordinary people who are totally unprepared for it.

    The terrorist’s focus on ordinary people is based on the fact that they are easy to reach and are susceptible to the deadly force. He hopes that the ‘spared’ innocents would recognise that they might have been the victims of the terrorist’s ambitions and so take him seriously.

    The terrorist ensures greater attention to his problems by targeting the innocent. A terrorist often justifies his acts by pointing out that the victims are not really innocent, but are threats due to their financial or electoral support or an institution or the state.


    But such arguments cannot be taken seriously; any individual has the liberty to extended support or refrain from extending support to any group or institution as long as he does not intrude other’s rights and does not act for the deterioration of the society or his country.

  • Terrorism, are you sure?

    Those who think terrorists are justifiable are hallucinating, living in a dream world. The reason. A well known terrorist group; ISIS. ISIS kill Muslims, they beheaded everyone whilst trying to save Islam. But they don't. They posted a video of a Muslim principle in a British school being beheaded in front of all the children. This is diabolical!

  • I am both shocked and disgusted by the current votes.

    No, under no circumstance is the act of visiting violence to innocent people justified....EVER! It is sickening that anyone would suggest otherwise. It's time to put our childish vengeance towards others behind us. Seriously. How can anyone justify the murder, or attempt thereof, of innocent people, for any reason whatsoever?
