Terrorism is violent or criminal acts committed by individuals or groups of individuals against humanity. Who are these individuals? What makes them? What are their motivating factors? Are they born or made?

Terrorists are individuals who have been radicalised and made to believe that they can only achieve some things through acts of evil. They are men and women who take up the roles of radicalizing other people and spreading hate. They lie through quotes from the holy book, picking verses that show an act of violence as something approved in this books, ensuring that people do not get to read the whole book or chapter so as to get the meaning and concept of the words written. They take advantage of the weak in faith and interpret for them as they may wish. They ensure that they spread the wrong messages to the illiterates since they know that they have no information or knowledge of the news that they spread.

Terrorists are not born, no one is born hating. Love comes naturally from the moment one is born, hate is taught. Terrorism is learned, people go through education to get to accept terrorism, radicalizers dwell on negatives and the weaknesses of a particular area, and this is where they base their teachings on. They teach people by twisting truths in an environment, they teach by taking advantage of situations in a community, they lie to the young and give false promises to entice them into embracing their initiatives. Terrorists are physically trained to harm, they go through thorough physical exercises to keep in shape during the evil attacks, they are shown how to use guns and knives, they are taught how to identify their targets, they are taught how to use ammunitions, no one naturally knows how to use this arms.

Terrorists kill people, they harm humans and make life unbearable. They are pain inflictors and can literally bring nations to their knees economically making life impossible.

If we all get to choose right from wrong, get to know the signs of being radicalized, know where to report in case of any incidents then we have a chance of fighting terrorism. As an individual let us all preach peace which is the right way of life.
