Anti-ter­ror­ism day ob­served


Anti-Ter­ror­ism Day was ob­served through­out the coun­try on May 21. Em­ploy­ees in govern­ment of­fices, pub­lic sec­tor un­der­tak­ings and other pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions in the coun­try took a pledge to op­pose all forms of ter­ror­ism and vi­o­lence. R.P.N. Singh, Min­is­ter of State in the Home Af­fairs, ad­min­is­tered the oath to the of­fi­cers and staff of the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs and Min­istry of Per­son­nel, Pub­lic Griev­ances and Pen­sions.

The ob­jec­tive be­hind the ob­ser­vance of Anti-Ter­ror­ism Day is to wean away the youth from the ter­ror­ist/vi­o­lence cult by high­light­ing the suf­fer­ing of the com­mon peo­ple and show­ing how it is prej­u­di­cial to the national in­ter­est. Th­ese ob­jec­tives are aimed to be achieved by or­gan­is­ing de­bates/dis­cus­sions in schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties; hold­ing of sym­posia/sem­i­nars, lec­tures, etc. on the dangers of ter­ror­ism and vi­o­lence and a de­ter­mined and sus­tained drive to bring about a mass awak­en­ing against ter­ror­ism and vi­o­lence.
