Terrorism has emerged as a contemporary menace to global tranquility, specifically posing a significant risk to India's national security. Terrorists are enhancing their intricacies and capabilities in every facet of their operation and assistance. The accessibility of weapon technology has significantly upsurging, and terrorist organizations are gaining more purchasing power due to the easy availability of both technology and skilled persons to operate it. Terrorists pose a momentous threat not only to the verity of democracy and freedom, but also to the survival, strides, and growth of humanity. There is a requirement for Onerous measures to avoid terrorism. If a law concerning terrorism is implemented, it should be crafted with such strictness that the offender is held accountable and does not escape vengeance due to any legal loopholes or gaps. The necessity of enacting herculean legislation to address terrorism should not be underestimated. However, the issue lies in the execution of these laws and the potential misuse of authority granted to the authorities under such legislation.
