be quite dissatisfied that it couldn't reach a deal at the second north korean u.s. summit in hanoi the country in question with me or you will be right you don't know who will be the missiles don't seem to directly threaten the united states japan or south korea so they appear to be taking care not to break down the dog report so at the same time they were definitely expressing an opinion. that it is however an opinion at least one part of south korea knows only too well the island of yeonpyeong was hit by north korean artillery and rocket fire nearly a decade ago since then residents of the island have addressed their god and boosted preparedness. to south korean island of yawn pianka is a two hour boat ride from the port of entry on its actually closer to north korea. soldiers pour off the ferry unofficial figures suggest there is one soldier for

community ask them to put that on i'm going to have a. a seven square kilometer outpost in the yellow sea every shill every street every meter of coastline is under surveillance yawn pyong is a fortress north korea's nearest cliffs are just three kilometers away the mainland twelve. world politics meets fisherman farmers and sea weed growers life here is overshadowed by a sense of strategic significance and ongoing threat along with memories of the past buildings still bear scars from the twenty ten attack. the marines based here have regular training sessions. after the panmunjom summit residents hope tensions would ease the island was to become part of a peace but progress has stalled. with the threat of another attack constantly hovering people here including children want to be prepared.

just behind the school is bunker number one the largest on the island. it can hold five hundred people with enough pairs of slippers for everyone. the new inch a from the local council shows us around the seven hundred square meter facility. there's a large kitchen emergency power supply a small medical station and a large dormitory and assembly room during the twenty ten attacks there wasn't enough to eat least says now there are better prepared she's convinced the bunker is still an important investment so. frankly i'm skeptical about whether the two koreas can ever be truly united as long as our parents' generation a steady life and our generation to the north has always lied to us i just don't think we can trust korea. the expiring

date on four thousand servings of food rations has passed the have to be replaced and with little real hope in sight many here would agree that's the only sensible thing to do. more than two hundred fifty killed a nation shaken and south asia in the crosshairs of tara once more the bloody easter sunday bombings in sri lanka were blamed on locum islamist groups at least one of which had pledged allegiance to so-called islamic state but a few days after the attack a warning started circulating on a telegram channel in bengali it was posted by a pro i.a.s. media group and indicated that the comments in sri lanka could soon be replicated in bangladesh or india and it's this suspected connection that's fueling concerns that jihad just extremism could be on the rise on the indian subcontinent bung others has been on high alert ever since the deadly attack on a faint twenty sixteen and
3:37 pm
a crack down on militants is ongoing two weeks ago police raided a hideout in the capital and killed at least two people suspected of belonging to the militant group that carried out the twenty sixteen attack on the day of the three bangladesh's government corporation to tackle the rising threat of jihad just extremism and terrorists have no religion terrorists have no country they are a minister of the civilization and humanity so we think that any terrorist threat it would be. our prime minister has appealed to global that we should all work together to fight the terrorists across from the blue. so how concerned should we be to talk more about this i'm joined in the studio now by chef money of the head of bangladesh is center for terrorism research and uk to get the mother of one who is the president of the international law and strategic
3:38 pm
analysis institute in chennai and an international lawyer welcome to both of you mr millet if i can just start with you this portrait threat from islamic state threatening attacks in the region how soon. they should be take these warnings we should take this warnings very seriously and as you know bangladesh since two thousand and sixteen has had a very proactive approach towards countering terrorism and violent extremism and we take all these threats and warnings very seriously and quickly act upon it and that's why we have had a dramatic reduction in the number of attacks in the last one obvious but of this is already talked about islamic state not being present there but there's of course there's homegrown terror from john model mujahideen in bangladesh among those has been dealing with what is the strategy that bangladesh has been adopting to try and fight terrorism with this has taken a two pronged strategy one we have released and then the capacity to degrade and destroy operational networks of militant groups but at the same time hand in hand
3:39 pm
we're also taking the approach of countering and preventing violent extremism by which we are taking my number of strategic measures including steps towards countering radicalization and creating awareness and building social resilience against violent extremism speaking of these dr who the mother and you've been studying terrorism for quite a long time now in india you had this recent case of the national investigation engine c talking about four suspects that they have arrested who apparently had links to islamic state is of radicalization a huge problem in india or what are the steps that india is taking to counter terrorism ok so when you talk about radicalization we have to understand this in the indian context specifically because it's not. a particular community or a particular religion is not a homogeneous unit in india like it is as where so you across the country you have different kinds of people different sects different beliefs but there is a very strong moderate voice in india so when you talk about drydock lies ation it
3:40 pm
is it needs down to a minority and i think it stems from a kind of fascination more than ideological commitment and it all. systems from the fact that the countries around india. at least we analysts in india believe that this radicalization is a process that comes from outside and the people who get radicalized also are definitely people who are fascinated with it more than ideologically committed to it this is what we have discovered so what you referred to yes and i is very vigilant about it but then it india is such a large country with such a huge population so you are definitely bound to find a few people who will of course behave in a rather aberrant manner you spoke about external influences impacting in south
3:41 pm
asia in general if there is this overall impact on terrorism in south asia is there a need for countries in the region to cooperate amongst themselves intelligence sharing or potentially new mechanisms of countering terrorism absolutely so i would break this into three levels the first is i wouldn't sit controller of the cyber but definitely a kind of a check on the cyber so you know india is one of the largest users of facebook and i think whatsapp is like part of every indian's life and that's where the danger lies but india has taken very strong steps in controlling that and we have we are in the process of a robust cyber laws the second thing is intense sharing that is imperative especially with those countries with whom we have very good relationships and yes we are we do have one or two neighbors with with which historically we do not have
3:42 pm
such good relationship in which case of course but still because of the trust deficit the intent but intel's sharing is imperative and the third is the advantage of intelligence. bearing as you know in the sri lankan issue where india did share intel i think intel is sharing also makes it kind of jolts the other possibility the georges given so the complacency into which countries slip in after a period of no action that complacency is shaken intention is imperative but when a final word i think terrorism and violent extremism is a threat faced by all of our countries across our region and there's absolutely no substitute to transnational corporations vision of cooperation but also corporations outside the region so cooperation between the european union and south asia and we all need to work together and the civil societies in this country is a very important role to play right you never leave it there for the time being
3:43 pm
