Terrorism originates from the latin word 'Terrere",which mean to frighten, and the french word "terrorisme" which is associated with the reign of terror of the revolutionary government of France from 1793 to 1794, when over 20,000 people were killed.
Unfortunately since 2004 more Indians are killed by terrorists than all of North America, South America, Central America, Europe and Eurasia put together. We are next only to Iraq,and witnessing more terror strikes than Afghanistan!!
