New Delhi, May 14: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has written to all the states, Union Territories (UTs), and Central government departments to observe Anti-Terrorism Day on May 21.

In this regard, the MHA has sent a letter to the states, UTs, secretaries of all ministries and departments of the government of India.

 “Every year 21st May is observed as Anti-Terrorism Day. The objective behind observance of this day is to wean away from the youth from terrorism and the cult of violence by highlighting the sufferings of common people and showing as to how it is prejudicial to the national interest,” the letter reads.

It also proposed that the anti-terrorism pledge may be taken in all government offices, public sector undertakings, and other public institutions.

The letter stated, “Innovative ways of propagating the message of anti-terrorism through digital and social medial platforms, may also be considered”.
