While prayers are being offered by people from around the world, such terrorist activities are making it impossible for people to step-out of their houses. Organizing shows and concerts have become a threat since these have now become a common spot for suicide bombers and terrorists for violence and terror. We know exactly what is about to happen after these incidents, probably people around the world will gather for a candle-march or a gathering to mourn for the victims, netizens will make several #hastags to condemn the attacks, Twitter, facebook and other social media platforms will be filled with condolence messages, But we really need to ask ourselves is this enough? Will any of these things solve the problem which actually lies at hand now. Merely, cancelling elections or holding meetings is and will never solve these issues. It is high-time for us to step-up against all these terrorist organizations make stricter laws. Men, women, children all are same in the eyes of these terrorist, then why do we have to differ? If we do not revolt now, I fear that, Armageddon is not far.
Note: Heartfelt condolences to the families, relatives and friends of the victims of the Manchester attack from our team. We hope that by sharing some of our ideals the governments take strict action against the assaulters and make this world a better place. May the souls of the victims rest in peace.
