The paper argues that there are three simultaneous and interconnected prerequisites for the state to protect human rights while responding to terrorism: an objective understanding of terrorism, an unbiased assessment of the efficacy and boundaries of human rights, and a response to terrorism that is consistent with human rights. These are not only theoretical issues; rather, their significant practical ramifications imply that they ought to be recognized as the guiding concepts in practice and policymaking. With instances, the study also examines India's reaction to the issue of terrorism. The analysis highlights the necessity of the three criteria and demonstrates the basic and unbreakable connection between "fighting against terrorism" and "human rights."
