This paper focus on reasons for growth of Terrorist activities in the world, India’s position on Terrorism, why have we failed to check Terrorism? and combating Terrorism. In trying to understand international terrorism, let us fist define the word “Terrorism”. Terrorism is a deliberate and systematic murder, maiming and menacing of the innocent to instil fear for political ends. This is not a sporadic Phenomenon born of social misery and frustration but is rooted in the political ambition and design of expansionist states and the groups that serve them. Without the support of such states, international terrorism would be impossible. Terrorism is a part of the broader trend towards war by proxy. Though terrorism as such is not new in history, today’s terrorism radically differs from earlier forms in its frequency and the extent of violence. It now attacks the territory and nationals of nearly all the democracies.
