How To Combat Terrorism?

Aug 17, 2007
Whenever there is a religious, social oppression, the tribes come closer, grow stronger in their beliefs. This is what happening around the world. With more than 300 billion dollars spent on war and more than 3000 soldiers lost their lives, not to mention loss of innocent civilian lives in Iraq, the insurgents number keep growing. No matter how much homeland security we implement, terrorists will always find ways to kill innocent people to make a point about their belief system. Historically, incognizance is the root cause to all the evils in the world including terrorism.
War on terrorism is like a band-aid to a crack in a water dam. xxxxxxVarious major religions are alternative paths to the same God. Basic belief is -There is a God, which is a near universal phenomenon. Faith plays a major role in the function and justification of religious beliefs. Blind faith dominates in religion and this undermines the logic, rational and free thinking. However, you can not be blinded by faith in religion. In the name of religion, we shield ourselves. We are creating walls, boundaries not only around nations, land, sea, and sky; but around each other. And that is what separating God from us. Every religion guarantees good life on earth and a safe trip to heaven after death. xxxxxxTerrorism is going on despite Saddam Hussein is kept in jail and will continue even after Osama Bin Laden is killed. Terrorists will multiply everywhere like weeds on a lawn. So what is the solution? One has to learn to achieve peace with his or her own mind which can be accomplished with self-knowledge. I can challenge you that we can combat terrorism if only that all the preachers, priests, popes, imams, clerics, spiritual gurus teach tolerance and respect to fellow religions and promote commonality of all religions. Instead, they are only pouring oil on a fire with hatred, biased, inflammatory, and narrow-minded preaches. I want to remind you that it is important to remember that you only can change what you think and gain some conscious control over your emotional life. It is in your power to change your mind for the better through logic and common sense. xxxxxxIf you do not change your inner consciousness, you can never win the war on terrorism. Spread the tolerance and respect to fellow human beings- religion and faith. It is the only synthetic approach to this burning global problem.
