The whole world saw the collapse of the Twin Towers in shock that day, saw the disruption of the security of people’s normal lives. Then people have the experience of living with that horrible memory for a long time. September 11 2001 is a tainted day in the history of civilization. On this day, terrorist attacks were carried out by hijacked planes in New York, and Washington DC. Thousands of people died tragically in that attack. The air of the world became heavy with the cries of helpless people that day. The activities of the terrorists started with the hijacking of four passenger planes.
They destroyed buildings by crashing a total of three planes into the World Trade Center in Manhattan, New York, and the Pentagon headquarters in Washington. Two of the four hijacked planes hit the Twin Towers, one hit the Pentagon, and the fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania. On one of the saddest days in the history of the world, we express our deep abhorrence of acts of terrorism. The then fugitive Osama bin Laden supported and financed the attack. People believe the attack to have been fueled by anger over America’s continued support for Israel, its role in the Persian Gulf and its continued military presence in Middle Eastern countries.
History Of World Trade Center Terrorist Attacks:
The 9/11 attacks were terrorist attacks by extremists. Their characteristic is that they accept ‘war’ as an ideal. Violence is their best tool. Militants follow an aggressive ideology and consider their own ideology as the supreme ideology. Militants in this country have religious ideologies. Such as Islamic militancy. And it has taken a stand against liberal humanism and democracy by declaring an armed brutal and unforgiving struggle against the enemies of that ideology to perpetuate the supremacy of delusional religious consciousness and ideology.
Like the fascist Hitler, all extremists have in common the assertion of their ideology and power through at tack, force and war. Basically religious militants believe in the superiority of their own religion. Like the Taliban, IS or Islamic militants call for jihad, crusades or crusades against all heathens. If not only individuals but Muslim rulers holding state power are against their ideology, the militants challenge those in power through violent activities and propaganda. The world saw that day they were scattered in different countries.
When was World Trade Center Terrorist Attacks Happened?
In America, four passenger jets were hijacked and crashed into two skyscrapers in New York, killing several thousand people. The attack was one of the deadliest of the century. Not only for the Americans, the whole world get a shocking view by the horror of the incident. The day was September 11, 2001, Tuesday.
On September 11, 2001, the terrible incident happened in just 102 minutes. On that day, almost 2996 people died in the worst terrorist attack in modern history. Then the war in Afghanistan started. It took 19 years, 10 months, three weeks and two days. According to the US Department of Defense, at least 2,325 American soldiers died in the war.
World history has never seen such a coordinated terrorist attack. Because the main perpetrators of that incident were eliminated immediately after 2001. After September 11, 2001, America changed. As a result, the world and global politics have changed. A new division in world politics began with 9/11. The then US President George Bush said, ‘Either you are with me or you are against me. There cannot be anything in between.’
Terrorists became concern with this view in the present century. Those who used to help them secretly are also being ostracized. Because even after 9/11, terrorist attacks worldwide have continued to increase. The world makes an unity to fight militancy and terrorists. Like the US, Bangladesh is now showing ‘zero’ tolerance towards terrorists. Hopefully, there will be no more incidents like 9/11 in the future.
