Description

While there is adequate knowledge in governmental and non-governmental circles in India about the threats emanating from Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh, there has been little appreciation of the threats which could emerge from activities in Southeast Asia of jihadi organizations like the Jemaah Islamiyah, its linkages in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and the linkages that it could develop in India, Sri Lanka and the Maldives in the future.

Another terrorist organization of Southeast Asia that should be of concern to India is the Abu Sayyaf of southern Philippines, which has had a long history of linkages with the Harkat-ul-Mujahiddeen of Pakistan, a founding member of Osama bin Laden’s International Islamic Front.

This volume of timely and vigorously researched analyses by experts from different countries in the region is a wakeup call to counter-terrorism policy makers in India and elsewhere to pay more attention to developments in jihadi terrorism in Southeast Asia so that any linkages that might develop can be detected and neutralized in time.

REVIEWS

So the war on terror is really a war of ideas. And, just hunting out members of Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations with similar aims and goals alone will not do as there can be a steady steam of new recruits to replace those captured or killed. The recent arrests of British-born and British-educated terrorists prove that it is ideology that generates new recruits to the war on democracy and multiculturalism. The war is between a very small minority of people who believe that they alone have the Truth and would like to return to an order that existed some centuries ago and turn their backs on modern-day values of democracy, multiculturalism and religious tolerance.
