Pakistan: Islamic fundamentalism and separatists movements. 5. Afghanistan: resurgence of Taliban and terrorism. 6. Bangladesh: ethnic violence and Islamic extremism. 7. Nepal: new constitution and Madhesi crisis. 8. Sri Lanka: small state and big problems. 9. Maldives’ political crisis: autocratic democracy. Conclusions and observations. Index. South Asia is one of the most poorly governed regions of the world, with the exclusion of a voiceless majority, unstable political regimes and poor economic management. This book covers a wide range of internal crisis, conflicts and confrontation so dangerous to the security and survival of the South Asian states. It discusses all the simmering separatists, extremists, terrorists' movements and insurgencies in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the much-debated autocratic democracy in Maldives. It adopted different approaches to develop an understanding of the existing internal crises from various angles. South Asia's existing internal crisis are deep rooted in its turbulent and unfinished process of state building, unsettled social equations and political hierarchies' assertion for identity and autonomy on the basis of ethnic, linguistic, religious and cultural; and ownership of the territories that sharpen the ethnic and sectarian violence and defies all attempts of stabilisation.
