Radical Islamism and Jihad

“The world was unaware that a whole generation of Bangladeshis had grown up with no love for Pakistan or the Islamic movement prior to the formation of Pakistan in 1947. These were young students and professionals born after 1971….

 
Intolerance and Radicalism in Indonesia
Jakarta Globe and Suara Pembaruan

The government had disbanded hardline Islamic group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia in 2017 for "threatening national unity and the state ideology Pancasila." But though the organization does not officially exist....

 

We can tackle racism and discrimination, which we must. We can review our security and intelligence settings, and we are. But we can’t fix the proliferation of violent content online by ourselves. We need to ensure that an attack like this never happens again in our country or anywhere else….

Under Imran Khan, Pakistan has developed a consensus — not without input from China — of getting rid of the “terrorists” trained and sheltered by it. Without this consensus, Khan wouldn’t have “made a clean breast” of it like that in Tehran....

 

Since the collapse of the “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq, Islamic State (is) has been looking for other places to raise its black flag. Africa, and especially the Sahel, is vulnerable. Governments are weak, unpopular and often have only a tenuous grip over remote parts of their territory....

 

But when it comes to the Islamic State terror group, numbers have always been a challenge for the United States and its partners, starting with their first efforts to measure the terror group’s appeal to would-be jihadists from across the globe….

 

The key reason behind China’s long-standing romance with Azhar and other AF-Pak terrorists is safeguarding its economic interests. Masood Azhar has been China’s go-to guy to ensure security of its geostrategic investments under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the top Chinese project under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in the Af-Pak region, one of the world’s most crowded terrorist landscapes....

Baghdadi’s reference to the terror bombings in Sri Lanka was important. The video was an opportunity to take credit for the bombings as well as a reminder that IS remains the dominant global jihadist terror group. His video likely sought to inspire those in Iraq and Syria who believed in IS’s purpose to have faith that the physical caliphate will be re-established later....

 

Al-Qaradawi, one of the most influential Sunni preachers in the world, has disseminated extremist ideas for many decades that form key parts of the ideological foundations for Salafi-Jihadism, the proper name for the doctrine of violent Islamist militancy practiced by ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and similar groups....

The bombings were planned by members of one of the wealthiest families in the island. Foreign-educated scions of this politically influential family were among those who volunteered to blow themselves up in the suicide mission....

This was not only one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in South Asia’s recent history, comparable to the Mumbai siege and atrocities in Peshawar and Baluchistan over the past few years. It was one of the deadliest recent attacks globally. According to some members of the Sri Lankan government, this attack was carried out in response to the far-right terror attack in Christchurch....

 

Ever since terrorism — specifically the jihadist variety — has stalked the globe, a common refrain has been that radicalised young men need to be educated and given job opportunities to steer them away from the murderous path they have chosen. But as we have learned in attack after attack, many of those responsible have been not just educated, but well-to-do....

They have learnt the art of exploiting local conflicts to set off a perfect storm, thereby holding on to the limelight and maintaining relevance in the eyes of those who share their ideology. They channel the anger and grievances of local radicals, who then do the rest in their own way...

 

Initially, they were the most vociferous that Sri Lankan Muslims were practicing a diluted version of Islam, that their prayers were not said in the correct Arabic accent, that they should stop praising the Prophet Muhammad and saints, and that they were not dressed properly according to Islamic guidelines — especially the women....

“Well, I’m afraid we won’t be able to stop the people from attacking them,” Bayati said as he sat in his group’s base in the city of Tal Afar last week. When asked about returnees from Syria, he bristled. “They should all be prosecuted or killed,” he said....

 

Now the Muslim youth have bombed their way into global headlines. They shot into the limelight on the morning of Easter Sunday taking everyone by surprise. Unlike the two preceding terrorist groups the local Muslim terrorists who carried backpacks loaded with explosives seem to be dummies carrying out the orders and agenda of a hidden hand directing them from abroad....

President Trump wants to designate the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamist movement, as a terrorist organization. The designation would impose sanctions on the group and those who do business with it. Officials in the Pentagon and State Department have raised objections to the plan...

 

In every civilization, there have been evildoers who sought to incite violence against others. They used tools such as religious differences to sow divisions. But preachers who create dissent and discord within a single religion have reached a new level of intolerance and heinous immorality, and they set a dangerous precedent....

Baghdadi mentions many current events that establish the video as having been filmed this month. He notes the defeat of his forces in Raqqa, Syria, and in Mosul over the past couple of years and finally in Baghuz, Syria, only a month ago. He notes the revolutionary protests in Algeria and Sudan, both of which are recent news...

 

Less than a month after the declaration of decimation of the Caliphate, on April 21, ISIS has claimed attacks in Sri Lanka — arguably the second-deadliest attack in history after 9/11. The selection of the day, time, targets, modus operandi and media messaging strongly indicates that ISIS must have been planning...

 

The progenitor of the modern Islamist movement is the Muslim Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. Before becoming the leaders of IS and al-Qaeda, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri (the current head of al-Qaeda), all belonged to the Brotherhood....

 

In the course of a week this month, Daesh proved with deadly attacks in Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia that reports of its demise were greatly exaggerated. If anything, the extremist group has signalled its intent to continue its campaign of terror in true transnational style...

In the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks on the US, the detained cleric criticized Western media for exaggerating the involvement of Al-Qaeda, and even claimed on Saudi TV that he had no proof of its existence. “Americans created an entirely imaginary organization and supported it to attack their own country and other places, not only Muslim countries,” he said....

Yes. The Prophet of Islam had foretold their emergence and had offered ample insights into the styles, methods and methodologies. He is reported to have once said- “There will emerge a (deviant) and dissentious group and faction; a people with excellent words and vile deeds. They will read the Qur’an, but their faith does not go past their throats.....

 

Other extremist groups, in pursuit of religious, ethnic or political goals, are probably paying attention and will seek to copy what “works,” thereby transforming themselves into major threats aligned with or alongside Daesh...
