Terrorism is undoubtedly the most important problem faced by most of the nations of the world.
Terrorism is like a parasite that is feeding on human beings and is posing a danger for the entire world.
It is therefore imperative to understand the urgency of combating terrorism at the world front.
Every year, 21st May is observed as Anti-Terrorism Day in India.
The observance of the day is an attempt to create awareness regarding terrorism and anti-social activities.
First as Anti-Terrorism Day was observed in 1991 by former Prime Minister Mr. Rajiv Gandhi. He realized the need to raise awareness against terrorism.
On the occasion of this day various programmes and events are held in educational institutions and government security offices.
Debates, essay writing, poster and collage competitions are organized on this occasion to make people aware of the fatal effects of terrorist activities. Such activities generate positive reactions amongst people. The country becomes stronger and stands united in fighting against terrorist activities.
The day also marks the death anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi, late Prime Minister of India who succumbed to a terrorist suicidal attack.
Let us all take pledge to firmly stand terrorism in all its forms and condemn it to the core.
