There is no Good and Bad Terrorist

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Kabul (BNA)  The recent terrorist incidents in Sri Lanka an Saudi Arabia are clear prove that terrorism knows borders and dividing terrorist in to good and bad terrorists is a great fault.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes a series of explosions on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka claimed the lives of more than 250 people.
Simultaneous to that armed men, the Saudi authorities linked them to IS, attacked a check point in Zulfi city located at 250 km north of Riyadh. Both  attacks are the reason of extremist way of thinking that clearly show this evil phenomenon is becoming more dangerous  by passing each day.
A day earlier to terrorist incidents in Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia, Kabul was also a scene of terrorist incident in which terrorists targeted a civilian organ that killed a number of our innocent compatriots.  
What terrorists did in Kabul, or criminals committed in Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia indicates that the world is facing extremism.
Today, extremism has been changed in to an acute world problem. Unfortunately these evil conceptions exist and active in all faiths and religions across the world but the ways they act are different. But among them, IS, Al – Qaeda and Taliban are more active than any other groups and with the most violent way are fighting against humanity.
There are numerous reports from valid international organs that Taliban IS with barbaric way of thinking, mostly link to intelligence services has committed violence again and again.
This should be mention that extremism and terrorism are growing together and threaten world communities.
The problem is this that terrorism defines in Pakistan in one way and in Moscow, Washington and Riyadh in other ways. Lack of a single definition from terrorism has caused terrorist to act more courageously.
In Afghanistan, Taliban are the main factor of the current violence, almost every family has sustained heavy losses because of violence carried out by this barbaric group. Unfortunately, certain countries in the region and beyond the region that have gathered around Pakistan are trying to introduce this terrorist group as an effective political movement.
In the same way, IS that is the factor of the most violence deeds in Middle East and Afghanistan, some countries use them as means of pressure against their rivals in the region, while Zulfi incident in Saudi Arabia clearly showed that no one can call any terrorist group his friend and colleague, the group will attack its supporters and patrons one day if they required.
The world community should know this clear fact that terrorism and extremism are the enemies of humanity, therefore knowing the nature of terrorism and extremism to fight these two evil phenomenon and rescue the humanity from the evil of them.
