“zhahzad” as he was called, the person responsible for that failed bomb attempt on timesquare signalling
that homegrown terrorism has landed and is real.
As the world reacted rather passively to the crude attempt to instil fear among americans and particularly the new yorkers, the american agencies geared up quickly to analyze psychological causes, the build up and the sponsorers of trans-atlantic terrorism and to find an answer to a simple question ..why did he do that ?
Lets go back to pak-taliban world for a moment and imagine the thriving lawlessness, the non-progressiveness and refusal to join the mainstream ideologies which only will help them being in the right side of life. Right education was supposed to be the biggest missing part of extremists. The lawlessness in the af-pak region gives rise to numerous factions and groups fighting for that power by playing with religion. A handful of war-ridden factional groups who have never seen the progressive world and yet be able to judge the outside world.
These extremist groups grown into such uncontrollable pace leading to believe that there is a govt high-handedness in dealing with such notorious elements to target foreign soil.
International responsibility comes with every nation to build an environment to preach peace, love & respect culturally and embed the same into religion based teachings.
Pakistanis, migrating to west and europe since decades in search of better living, prospects and growth is not uncommon.South asians are known to be moderately religious but progressive minded however thats changing.This guy despite having better education and living and equipped with an “american citizen” tag has probably never been secure with himself.
Pakistanis have been heavily influenced by the arab world in terms of religious practices but at the same are in awe and adapt to the western culture fairly quickly. The radical beliefs and the handful of pretentious global guardians of the faith is generally noticed in the older generation, who struggle to re-connect to world by imposing the “hatred” and infiltrate the minds of the young who usually tend to look and act western, and the biggest weapon brain-washers have is the religion.
I must believe the cultural bashing is a favorite topic of discussion within the circles of the timid extremists.
Unless the handful of taliban leaders of af-pak region are shown that terrorism never succeeded and is only a futile attempt and is by no means must be connected to any faith and is indeed tough to get through this problem of epic proportion.
Whats in it for India ? India will benefit from the developments that will follow after this incident.
India has been meticulously collected data through its resources to validate the training camps
but until this attack India’s claim was merely seen as a political blame-game by USA.
USA will now step up their campaigns against terror training camps vigorously and will help out flush out the weeds or shutdown their shop/services and eventually their dry out their operations.
I couldnt help deduce a pattern in violence in Mexico/Columbia with drug cartels and those of af-pak
region since Afghans are the producers, their neighbours are the agents and smooth drug operator to
connect with the world.
So its the money after all ? Well its a mix of politics, drug money, notoriously hideous military elements
and religion. This combination makes Pakistan the world’s most dangerous place.
Imagine what it could do for the next generation from that area.
How would educated Pakistanis react ? It was interesting to view from Pakistani that it is a big political
game and the common man has a gun held on his head to decide whether to participate or perish.
Then again the epicenter of evil blames it on the western world of using aerial attacks on innocent people.
Military might of pakistan thrives on limitless funding.The military agents have known to pile up “mind boggling wealth” compared with other professions.Leadership in Pakistan is probably the easiest to get into since it has had some form of democracy unlike other muslim countries. This leadership usually gets ugly and get uglier when someone else comes to power.Once again the military backing is of paramount importance to the head of the state.
Enough said , the homegrown radicals turning/stepping into full blown terrorism in a foreign land is stark example of the penetrating and brainwashing capabilities of the terrorists.
