How to fight terrorism : Part 1!

According to a study by an institute, RAND Corporation, the profits from film piracy might be directly funding terrorist organizations. According to the report,
"If you buy pirated DVDs, there is a good chance that at least part of the money will go to organized crime and those proceeds fund more-dangerous criminal activities, possibly terrorism,"

Also it goes on to mention the Dawood-led mafia groups as being widely active with Indian film piracy and aiding terrorist organisations.
The D-Company is an organized crime group active for generations in India. Since the 1980s, it has been the major syndicate involved with film piracy in India. The group was transformed into a terrorist organization when it carried out the "Black Friday" bombings in Mumbai in 1993 that killed more than 257 people and injured hundreds more. It continues to advance a political agenda with its actions funded at least partly by the proceeds of crime.

So in case you are wondering how you can fight terrorism, well, stop buying pirated DVDs.
