Pak-Af region has emerged as the epicentre of global terrorism. It not only houses the most dreaded terrorist organisation ‘Al Qaeda’, it is also home to most obscurantist terrorist outfit of the region- Taliban, whose leader Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada has been declared as the Emir-ul-Momineen (Commander of the Faithful) by Al Qaeda to meet a critical theological requirement of Jihad. The region also has growing presence of Islamic State with its Khosran chapter operating out of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The growing Islamic radicalism in Pak-Af region as represented by IS, Al Qaeda and Taliban is not only challenging the writ of the state and its institutions, it is also accentuating the sectarian divide and aggravating the persecution of minorities.
India Foundation will be hosting a Workshop at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT’s) 17th World Summit on Counter Terrorism on this.
