Long Abstract

Term Violence is discussed in different ways. It is generally perceived in negative sense, which needs reconsideration in modern world. Violence has travelled a long path since the advent of man on this blue planet and has assumed aggravated proportions with civilization. Violence can be of two types one which we understand in common sense as violence by people of nation or violence by the foreign agents which destroys the harmony of a nation or of the world. In radical sense it is remedial or corrective, which may be termed as repulsive violence - more positive in nature. Repulsive violence can generate an idea about humanity and assurance for human rights protection globally.

Violence in common sense exists in EGYPT, SERIYA, YAMAN, INDO-PAK etc. Problem of all these countries may be solved with repulsive violence by state to protect common people and their rights. Philosophy of violence in the form of punishment helps the process of socialization, humanization in a child's life, in an individual, group, society etc. It was genocide and homicide which generated an idea of protection of human rights in 1948. Fear of infliction of violence forces peace between two persons, two groups, communities, states and Nations. We can't imagine an emerging world without a resonance of violence which makes people more aware, credible and sensitive for a group, culture, society and state. Anthropological jurisprudence can decipher how violence plays its role in maintaining peace, humanity, solidarity and affinity between a group, state or nation?
