carnage (noun) mass killing and wounding of people.

The killing and wounding of a large number of people in a single incident or a series of incidents, as in war, is carnage. A carnage shows the worst side of human mind, the side that indulges in mindless violence. Terrorists commit carnage when, to achieve their objective, they kill or wound a large number of people, including women and children. Killing a large number of soldiers in war is carnage, and killing innocent people in peace time, as terrorists do, is also carnage. But while the killing of soldiers is bad, though understandable, the killing of people by terrorists is worse.

  • The Jews that survived the Hitler's attempt to end their whole race during World War II could never forget the carnage they witnessed in the Nazi concentration camps, in which, millions of Jews, including children and women, were killed.
  • The blind love of, and faith in, one's own religion causes intolerance and hatred of other religions and what follows is a carnage in which a number of innocents are mercilessly killed.
