Although terrorism is an inevitable reality in the present scenario, when the whole world is in the cruel jaws of it, but this ineluctable reality cannot be curtailed through the more terrorism or on the same pace; as many countries of the present world are trying to do it in this way. The obvious example of Kashmir and Palestine tells otherwise. The relative term ‘one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter’ is also fully involved here. The freedom movements of Palestinians, Kashmiris and the Chechens have been branded through the Western media and also through diplomatic efforts the specific countries are doing on their best. In the present scenario, countering terrorism has become more difficult for the countries in order toe establish peace and stability in the world. The definition of terrorism is still under the fog, and it would be under the fog until and unless the member countries of UNO would not adopt a universal definition of it; or until the US and its allies would not get their hidden motives under the umbrella of their ‘war on terrorism’. This book is a modest attempt to discuss all these issues.
