Anti-Terrorism Day is observed across India on 21 May. The date is chosen to commemorate the death anniversary of one of the most eminent Prime Ministers of India, Shri Rajiv Gandhi (20 August 1944 – 21 May 1991).
This day is also observed to make people aware of ongoing terrorist activities and the precautions that can be taken by ordinary people to prevent these acts of terrorism. To spread this awareness, we Lissians (from LISS school), in association with URI Zero Limits Cooperation Circle, celebrated Anti-Terrorism Day with immense pleasure.

Throughout this program, I learned many things. I, as a Muslim, used to ask myself why terrorists are calling themselves Muslims while our beloved prophet teaches in Islam by saying: "Whoever has killed a person having treaty with Muslims shall not even smell the fragrance of paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years." Today, I realized the answer to my question is that terrorism has no religion. No religion promotes terrorism, and every religion promotes peace.
They think they are causing terror, but killing innocent lives is not terror – it is their utter foolishness. They may be taught to do that, but we should be the ones who are taught to promote peace. No one can stop us from promoting peace until we lead people to our path without any fear. I, as a Muslim and as a human, will never promote any such violent activities. This is what LISS and URI Zero Limits Cooperation Circle taught us to be.
