Human Rights, Global Terrorism, intellectual war-fare, intelligence


Post World War II scenario, saw frequent changes in the political opinions and humanitarian concerns. The interests of global leaders on one side influenced the intellectual war-fare over the resources on one hand and its newly developed face in the form of evolving terrorism. Time and on, situations of self-doubt and question over the concerns over development versus human rights have been posed before mankind, presenting an ever-expanding domain of terrorism and an evolving correction to this definition. The paper brings in the concept of terrorism in different lights and addresses the growing impact on the society that is unknowingly suffering terrorism in many ways.  Researcher delves into this very sensitive aspect of human development that brought in terrorism of sorts as a by-product. The paper is based on a systematic analysis of literature and data available on the above aspect. The data has been sifted for details that present terrorism as a challenge to human rights in every domain; personal, religious freedom, social structure and conformity, education and technological freedom, making all a part of Global terrorism in some form or the other. The paper presents scope of studying each of the discussed faces of terrorism in both global and local contexts.
