A descriptive study on Indian standpoint against terrorism


  • Dr. Govind Singh Associate Professor, Department of Law, Seth Raj Narayan Gupta Mahila Vidhi Mahavidyalya Bhiteda Behror (Alwar)




Terrorism, piracy, International legislation, war crime


Terrorism has existed on a global scale for centuries. Because these crimes are so heinous and threaten the peace, tranquilly, and security of all States, it is now settled in customary international law that any State has the right to try persons for piracy, slavery, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, regardless of their nationality or the location of the crime. This is exemplified by the principle of universal jurisdiction. Terrorism does not qualify because there is no agreed-upon definition of the term. Moreover, the current state of terrorism has a grave, gloomy, and alarming impact on maintaining law and order, ensuring peace and tranquilly to law-abiding citizens, and facilitating growth and development on a national and international scale. The global spread of terrorism now poses a grave danger to our species. This paper attempts to define international terrorism, with a particular emphasis on India, and to propose international legislation and cooperative efforts to combat the problem.
