Their major objection is also related to the curriculum. Anti-Americanism has increased due to its imperialistic attitude of not listening to its allies its outright disdain of international law, erosion of its moral ground imposition of its own culture and values upon others. They also argue that the economy cannot afford the burden of more literates and the market has already absorbed more than its capacity. Eighth, the extreme Salafist Islamism doctrine that the precepts of the Muslim faith negate and supersede all other natural ties, such as those of family, kinship and nation The present government in Pakistan even if elected and enjoying the support of the majority of its people, is ideologically ill suited to confront extremist elements in the country.

The bureaucracy was indulged in plundering public wealth; public representatives were openly engaging in nepotism and corruption, religious and sectarian strife was at peak and challenging the writ of the government. While it should never compromise on principles of democracy, human rights and tolerance, it must maintain a channel of communication with its misguided citizens through helpful religious entities in the country. Eventually the message is carried up the chain to top militant commanders. Fourth, the ignoring or flouting of the strict regulations governing the conduct of armed jihad, i. In total, the four groups comprise around 60 major tribes and over sub-tribes.

Sharif has resisted calls for his resignation. Eventually the message is carried up the chain to top militant commanders. The people who cannot exert their influence, in the decision making process, go for violent means to express their opinion [1]. US should revise its policies towards Muslim World. Whole nation is under depression and feel insecure even to go to markets and Mosques. They listen from religious teacher or from poorly educated Mullahs about Islam in local languages without a chance of even verifying at later stage owing to lack of sufficient knowledge of local language.

Extremism in Pakistan and India book

Such organizations took root when Pakistan, during the Soviet War, started to support anti-modern, extremist and intolerant forces eventually losing control of them and having them erode law and order situation in addition to damaging the social fabric of the society.

I was not treated as an enemy or as an 'intruder' per se, but as an outsider it took time and effort for me to develop credibility and trust. Religious political parties in Pakistan who participate in democratic elections are moderate and hold very different views than that of Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Extremism can be of different types, it can be ethnic, linguistic, narrow nationalism but the most severe kind of extremism faced by our society is religious extremism.

It has now become a very difficult task since the genie of extremism and terrorism is out of the bottle and requires great effort, patience and consistency to deal with. What defines Pashtun identity is a question that deserves some attention. Since September till today, that is, just within nine years the US has lost much of its good will.

It divides the world strictly into 'Us' versus 'Them': those who are blessed or saved i. But now the monster has taken a hold over the whole country and converted it into a jungle, where everyone is fighting each other by adopting this name.

As many of these Pashtun tribes are spread over northern Pakistan, it became doubly convenient for the Taliban and their allies to cross over the porous and long border between the two countries. Historical czarist ambition for access to warm water of Arabian Sea was clear.

They are frustrated by the permanent majority of one province in the center and the exploitation of their natural resources as well as cultural and social identity.

It has now turned against Taliban forces in the tribal area of South Waziristan and intends to further expand its operation against Taliban and Al Qaeda in other parts of the tribal area. Given the historical and cultural links between Persia and Afghanistan, many Pashtuns in Afghanistan speak Dari, a Persian dialect.

The Islamic Revolution of Iran in was a major stimulus for sectarian terrorism. Similarly different concepts of Jihad are also agitating human minds and a distorted concept is being projected everywhere [5].

Religious minorities are particularly vulnerable to allegations of blasphemy. Islam is special. Modi played on these sentiments and the Pulwama attack to whip up an anti-Pakistan and anti-Muslim frenzy as part of his election rhetoric.

They argue that it is producing generations that will push the country further into extremism. Likewise, North Korea is only facing sanctions, even after launching successful nuclear tests.

Extremism Watch in Pakistan

Pashtuns also constitute a little over a third of Pakistan's troubled Balochistan Province, and they are both comparatively better off economically and more stable than their Baloch neighbours.

Some Pashtuns hailing from the tribe of Yusufzai Sons of Joseph reportedly preserved copies of the Hebrew Bible, handed down to them by their forefathers, up until the early twentieth century. The police siezed the houses and foctories of the jatoi family but could not arrest them.

The graphic novel follows two idealistic young men, Asim and Munir, who decide to join a militant organisation because of its charitable activities. These alliances also enable them to safeguard their so-called class interest through resisting educational reforms.

Misinterpretation of Jihad: Presently different concepts about Islam and Jihad are floating in the minds of the people.Islamic extremism is any form of Islam that opposes "democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs".

Related terms include "Islamist extremism" and Islamism. Some people oppose the use of the term, fearing it could "de-legitimize" the Islamic faith in. I wonder if anybody has ever asked if Saudi arabia is unfriendly to hindus? or even kashmir to kashmiri pandits?
