Proper awareness on terrorism & its varied dimensions is the key to address this serious issue of Terrorism.
Inaugurating the statewide campaign on “Terror Free India” Mr. Labeed Shafi, state president, SIO Karnataka said Pluralism is an intrinsic characteristic of our nation. The constitution of India envisages to develop an atmosphere of mutual friendship, love coupled with a conducive environment to lead a life of harmony. The protection of human rights is one of the foremost objectives of the Constitution of India. Today the human rights violation is assuming varied dimensions. As such, the protection of human rights must be the first priority of all peace loving Indians. He said, Today, Terrorism is a global phenomenon. Any act which terrorizes the public is akin to terrorism. Terrorism has devastated the very balance of humanity. For the advantage of casteist and religio-political benefits and to safeguard the international interests and in the name of internal security, the misuse of this term has become routine. Without properly investigating the crimes, the prejudiced approach to crimes have in fact lead to foster the terrorism in our land. It is a known fact that the saviours become the perpetrators of terrorism. As a responsible student organization, SIO is committed to create awareness against the evil of terrorism and violence. Thus, Students Islamic organization of India (SIO) Karnataka has decided to organize a statewide campaign “Terror Free India” to create awareness against all kinds of terrorism, violence, cruelty, oppression and communalism.
