Terrorism is the favor of demanding something that is impossible, and demanding it at gunpoint. Everyday in news papers we read about diseases, deaths and not to forget about the deadly “Terrorism attacks” . Other issues have some remedies and prevention but the terrorism is the only issue which was, is and will be a biggest threat for any country. Some dates are never vanished in the world history , for instance, 9/11 for USA and 26/11 for Aamchi Mumbai. There is also this belief that we invite terrorism by ignoring them, It is very hypothetical to comment on terrorism . But now a “war against terrorism” is an impracticable conception where we are fighting terrorism with terrorism. On stopping this terrorism one has to remember this quote from Noam Chomsky “Everybody’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s a really easy way: stop participating in it” .However, here are the top 10 unforgettable largest terrorist attacks ever.

9) TWA Flight 841 Terrorist attacks:
The worst terrorist attack in the air, it is not a Hi-jack. It is something more terrified and miserable attack than that. The day was September 8, 1974. The Flight flew as usual from Athens to Rome. In the middle it took a break and stopped in Greece for about 70 min to take off to reach the next destination, New York City International Airport. In matter of this journey time the plane suddenly crashed into the Lonian Sea. At first the engine failure was given as a reason and the blame was pushed on the pilot’s inefficiency. No sooner the bitter and shocking truth came out stating that this plane collapse was because of a bomb blast in the plane. And the crash was a 100% terrorist bomb blast which belonged to the Abu Nadil Terrorist organisation. Around 80 passengers traveled in this plane and none of them came back safely as they were present lifelessly into the Lonian Sea.
8) Manhattan Attacks:

7) Chechnya Border Attacks:

It started exactly after the 1 week of the WTC i.e. September 18; 2001.It had a slow start and steadily caused an impact after several weeks. It claimed the death of 5 innocent lives and injured 15 people. This was one of the most complicated cases to handle in the history; it was openly stated by FBI officials. This attack dint had bombs, weapons or anything else. It was just through letters that contained these anthrax spores. It was a biological terrorist attack. These letters were posted to the well positioned officials like Senators along with the media officers. The reason behind these attacks is not known exactly. Firstly it was blamed on Al Qaeda, later FBI suspected Dr Ivins who was a country official. After few weeks he committed suicide. This incident led to more suspicious turns. FBI officials also announced that he was a lead head of this attack. The Government officials got panicked and took powerful antibiotics and increased the security.
5) World Trade Centre (WTC) Bombing of 1993:
World Trade center was a center of attraction for all these terrorist attacks. Well before 9/11 incident the WTC already World Trade Center already got a choke through bomb blasts on Feb 26, 1993. This was said to be a failure one as they aimed for twin tower attacks and missed their task. There was a truck placed in the basement parking of North Tower New York city. Miserably, the truck was full of bombing materials. This was a failure attack as it did not demolish the twin towers. But it was the first biggest attack to destroy the backbone of the US. Ahmad Ajaj, Mahmud Abouhalima, Nidal A. Ayyad, Ramzi Yousef, Abdul Rahman and Mohammad Salameh, were the core team group who planned and executed this attack which was financed by Shaikh Mohammed.

The death of 38 lives and 143 injured people results Wall Street bombing. This time it was gain in the month of September 16, 1920 at around 12.00 p.m. The bombs shook the New York’s financial sector. The team behind it was not traced exactly but they has a strong doubt and guessed that Galleanists were the one who were behind this cruel attack , but still they were not the officially announced. This is the earliest and the worst terrorist attack.
3) 26/11 Mumbai attacks:
This is the most fiery and weird attack that took place in the Indian History. The spot was India’s most famous and royal Hotel group Hotel Taj Mahal which is in the premises of Gate way of India. There was a 64 hours long battle between the Military / police forces and the terrorists. There were shooting and bombing continuously from both the sides. It was like a hotel arrest by terrorist. The date 26 November 2008 will remain in the forever as a black day in the Indian history. There were 10 attacks on the same registered in several places of Mumbai on the same day; however Hotel Taj was the main target which witnessed the death of 100 innocent people who stayed in Taj.
2) The Okahlama city bombing:
Oklahoma City’s, Alfred.P. Murrah Federal building was attacked with bombs on 19 April 1995. This is the 2nd and the deadliest terrorist attack ever on the soil of America. Around 170 people were dead that included 20 children and 680 more victims were injured. The terrorist Timothy Mcveigh , was the sole cause of this attack and he was imprisoned executed to death after 6 years.
1) 9/11 attack (WTC):
The worst attack ever in the world history. It is reported that 2.993 were dead and 8,900 were injured. It literally has some videos and pictures showing the fall of victims from the top most building (from burnt section) facing death very pathetically! 9/11 attack on World Trade Center is truly on top of the list as it is the worst terrorist attack so far that has been faced by humans living anywhere in any part of the world. As it is known to all, these attacks were planned, monitored and executed by the world’s top most terrorist Osama Bin laden. He brought nightmares to all the US public.
Four planes were planned but only two were hit to the twin towers the others missed the target wherein one out of the other two hit the Washington pentagon and the last one was crashed into the field in Summer set County. It was a well planned tragic attack ever. It affected Nation’s foreign and democratic rules and policies. It raised doubts against the nation’s security and intelligence power.More importantly it affected all the IT countries which lead to a big set back called “recession”
Conclusion: No matter what, the attacks are small or big, the terrorism must get a full stop. No religion has mandated their followers to kill the followers of the other religion. Killing innocent public does not give any justice to the Nation. Some even consider the terrorism as a war. But in reality it is completely different, killing soldiers or killed by soldiers in war zone is for rescuing purpose to save their own homeland. Hence fight in war zone is for security but “terrorism” calling as a war is to break the security and secularism.
