Disable Fading Edges Scroll Effect Android Views

When a view is scrollable like HorizontalScrollView or a TextView in an Android Intent, a gradient effect is seen at the end of scroll (depending upon the scroll, i.e. Scroll-Up, Scroll-Down, Scroll-Sideways Right or Left). This effect is called an Over Scroll Effect.
