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 one small 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 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 bunder this has been on high alert ever since the deadly attack on the takaka fane twenty sixteen and a crack down on militants is ongoing two weeks ago police raided
4:37 pm
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 very back of issues government cooperation to tackle the rising threat of jihad just extremism and terrorists have no religion terrorists have no country they are i mean this to 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 globe. 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 be the mother of one who is the president of the international law and strategic
4:38 pm
analysis institute in chennai and an international lawyer welcome to both of you mr money if i can just start with you this a portrait threat from islamic states like 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 to what's 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 there's already talk about islamic state not being present there but there is of course there's homegrown terror from jamaat all mujahideen bangladesh among vision has been dealing with what is the strategy the bunker there has been adopting to try and fight terrorism with this is 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 we're also taking the approach of countering and preventing violent extremism by
4:39 pm
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 doctors is a mother when you've been studying terrorism for parts a long time now in india you have this recent case of the national investigation engine say 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 taken 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 with 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 radicalization it is
4:40 pm
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 refer 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
4:41 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 counter interest absolutely so i would brick the center three levels the first is i wouldn't say control 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 intel 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 such good
4:42 pm
relationship in which case of course but still because of the trust deficit the entire but intel sharing is imperative and the third is the advantage of intelligence. airing as you know in the street issue where india did share in terror i think in two sharing also makes it kind of jolts the other possibility of the georges given so the complacency into which countries slip in after the pivot of no action that complacency is shaken me 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 or corporation 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 these countries a very important role to play right you never leave it there for the time being shot many of them not to give the mother thank you so much for coming in today did
