Objectives of a terrorist attacks are to cause panic and fear in the population and to cause civil backlash and civil strife for the sake of a political objective in mind. Terrorists want to make people hostile to each other. So as a Islamic extremist terrorist strikes a target in India, then ppl immediately may develop animosity or mistrust towards all Muslims in INdia. TErrorists always hope for this backlash. Terrorists also want to drive a sense of insecurity amongst the population.

TErrorists aren't tried in military courts because they aren't combatants representing an enemy state. They are private citizens recruited and trained by private groups. These private groups may enjoy state support but still they r not national organizations. This makes military courts a non option for judging terrorist cases as per constitution.

Military courts are intended for Prisoners of ***WAR***....and for court marshall's within its own ranks.

Tell me tho, why u need military court ...more

Govt. is busy in discussing reservation for minorities to attract their votes. Shame shame. Here I am giving some suggestions to help them out of the menace. If they get time they should seriously think about it.

Action for government or political parties:
(1) All the parties should take hardest possible actions against terrorists. They should not look at their religion. Vote bank politics should be totally stopped. They should understand that they cant win from vote from one religion. For example if they are thinking that if the terrorist is from Muslim community and if they are taking action against him then there will be scarcity of Muslim vote for them. Then they are wrong at their thinking. Terrorists are of no religion. Now public know everything. Muslim community will have no denial if a terrorist from their community is getting harsh treatment. (2) As we know terrorism basically comes from our neighboring country, we have to take strong steps on that. If they need evidenc ...more

Terrorist attacks are only symptoms of an underlying disease of constant neglect by society. Hence, Govt should focus on the disease on long-term basis, after attending to surgical procedures, if necessary, to relieve pain immediately.
Terrorists cannot be tried in Military courts because Military courts are meant for military personnel only.

Scaring the Govt agencies and showing their over smartness.
Punishing them instantly is the one and only solution.But due to our Govt Policies and foreign affairs etc etc , this is not possible.
