Abstract

Dealing with war studies, one wonders how to tackle with a variety of approaches involved during pre-historic period and in the modern globalized world. Regardless the fact that the world is packed with modern sophisticated weapons, it is suicide bombing (SB) that seems to haunt the people everywhere in the world. This paper aims at analyzing SB as a resisting force. It tries to unearth the factors and scenarios that forces individuals and groups to use SB as an ultimate tool to achieve their objectives. The paper also throws light on the twin simmering issues of SB and martyrdom. The paper attempts to segregate martyrdom from SB and terrorism and silence those quarters who attach terror with Islam for their personal objectives. Besides, the paper attempts to answer the question as why the act of powerful is justified while the act of weak and deprived is labeled as terrorism? Moreover, the paper also aims at bringing to limelight the horrible consequences of SB in the world in general and in the war-torn countries in particular.
