An Analysis On The Victims Of Terrorism

Ketan Kumar, LL.M, Galgotias University


Terrorism has posed a threat not only to India's democracy but also to the enjoyment of people's rights in other countries. Terrorism has impacted practically every aspect of human life, whether it is economic, political, or social. Terrorism is, in general, the polar opposite of independence, growth, and human rights.

Terrorism, in all of its forms, is the most serious human rights violator. It is a clear and present danger to the globe today; it is a death blow to innocent persons' human rights. Terrorists kill innocent people in a cruel, barbaric, and inhumane manner not only to undermine the government's authority but also to jeopardize the country's security and sovereignty, as well as to cause pain and interminable anguish to the families of those killed.

The majority of terrorist casualties are ordinary people who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and are arbitrarily targeted in violent attacks. The lives of survivors of attacks, as well as the relatives of victims, have been severely harmed. Many survivors need years to physically recover from their injuries or come to grips with their losses, and many are still emotionally traumatized While states recognize terrorism as a security danger, they do not always provide enough care to victims and their families. Terrorist victims and their relatives require focused and devoted measures to ensure that their unique rights are respected and protected.

Terrorist victims play a critical role in ensuring that terrorist cases are investigated and prosecuted effectively. They help with evidence gathering, witness testimony, identifying culprits, and combating extremist narratives.
