  4. An enduring threat Disclaimer This Editorial is not meant to target any Religious Ideology. Intelligence agencies have a terrible track record in anticipating religious-oriented terrorism S. UBHODEEP

  5. West and its intelligence agencies failed to realise the dimensions of Iran's religious revolution Iranian Revolution was much larger than most previous secular uprisings, including the French Revolution The generally accepted view, hence, is that intelligence agencies and policy-makers are usually unable to recognise the potential of movements about which they know little or understand even less. Grave lacuna Intelligence analysts are better off when it comes to matters arising from more pedantic issues and events. For example, in the case of non denominational terrorism, which has been around for a long time, intelligence is better placed to understand its dimensions than that of religious-oriented terrorism UBHODEEP

  6. Today, no doubt, it is possible to see the connection between Qutb's views and the establishment of al-Qaeda, and how his teachings spawned an entire generation of Islamist terrorists. It was only after al-Qaeda carried out its spectacular attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001, that the world truly woke up to this reality cathat the world truly woke up to th Lack of understanding of the expanding saga of revolutionary violence, mostly of the religious variety, constitutes one of the most spectacular failures of intelligence in modern times. Ethnic-oriented violence and terrorism is no less sanguinary in many instances, as the history of 'peoples' uprisings' in different parts of the world confirms. S. UBHODEEP

  7. Eg. Kurd Movement Some are based on local grievances, and many are sponsored by outside forces anxious to create turbulence and disorder in another country. Hardly any of them, however, have the same broad sweep or appeal as religious-oriented terrorism, especially Islamist terrorism Ideology remains the main source of violent extremism When intertwined with religious extremism, it becomes an even more potent mixture UBHODEEP

  8. The Islamic State Premature celebrations of the so-called destruction of the Islamic State (IS) 'Caliphate' would be uncalled for. IS stormtroopers have moved from strongholds in Syria and Iraq to countries across Europe, Asia and Africa. Given the climate of violence, and the determination of radical groups to wage war, India cannot afford to be oblivious to what is happening around us. The 'Khalistan' revival Very recently, we have seen a manifest attempt by Sikh extremist groups residing in Canada and the U.S. to revive the demand for Khalistan and of self-determination for Sikhs. S. UBHODEEP

  9. They have the backing of sections of the Sikh community in the U.K. as well. No time The enduring message is that the ideological battle against religiously-oriented terror groups like the IS is far from over. No shortcuts are available as of now. Above all, India must realise that some of the world's top 10 most wanted terrorists are located in its vicinity (the Haqqani brothers, LeT Chief Hafiz Saeed, JeM leader Masood Azhar and Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi).
