Terrorism from the perspective of Islamic and international legal system
Abdolghaffar Elahi, Maryam Moradi
Terrorism is a global threat. Terrorist acts such as murder, hostage taking, hijacking and destruction of property and places, violated the human rights and fundamental freedoms and affected international relations.
In the Islamic criminal policy, resorting to terror, intimidation and general discomfort are crime and is associated with severe criminal response. At the same time, in the case of politically motivated violence to deal with the government or the ruling, the responses are regulative, defensive and in line with restoring social order. Global efforts to cope with terrorism began with the establishment of the League of Nations and with establishment of the United Nations and the spread of terrorism, especially in the second half of the twentieth century it was accelerated.
