Terrorism is perhaps one of the most challenging problems of our times. It doesn't matter anymore which part of the world we live in. The unfortunate reality is that terrorism has gone global and every world citizen is equally susceptible and vulnerable. Terrorism means the destructive activities taken recourse to by a group of people to coerce a government to yield to their demands. Terrorists engage themselves to violent activities. They use deadly arms and ammunition. There have been several terror attacks in different parts of world. Recently many people were killed and injured after a gunman opened fire Sunday night at a country music festival opposite the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, USA.
It may be difficult, to stop a determined individual who wants to commit an act of terrorism if they get through every security check, but there are some things that can be done to limit the spread of extremist violence and divert their support:
Ø Keep a Check on Extremist Clerics
Ø Make Aid Accountable
Ø Stop the Flow of Terrorist Funds
Ø Securing Defenses
Security Agencies play a major role in a nation’s counterterrorism preparedness. Since private security personnel are already trained to be on alert on different situation, it is an easy extension to keep a very similar eye out for counter-terrorism purposes.
