The Anatomy of Terrorism

Mahmood bin Muhammad (Author)
Synopsis This book has a two-fold purpose: first, to identity, analyse and encapsulate a theme that has dominated world news ever since September 11, 2001, and second, to dispel the various myths surrounding it. In reality, terrorism has nothing to do with religion but everything to do with psychosocial factors. Radical movements are usually born out of a perception of alienation or marginalisation, a brooding sense of injustice ranking in the human heart. Driven to the breaking point – which is different for each of us-one becomes, out of sheer frustration a terrorist, a criminal or otherwise abnormal. The answer is to be sought in a new social order: in homes and schools, not in battlefields; in parents and teachers, not in warriors; in the pen, tongue and the heart, not in the sword. Someone said pithily: “If you seek peace without justice, you shall have neither peace nor justice.” As a result wars are won but peace is lost. This is what is happening in the world today. The author’s rich police background is visible throughout this compilation. The reader will be struck not only by the timeliness and timelessness of the thoughts expressed but also by their consistency. The book is bound to attract the interest of social scientists and social activists, police officials and public men, students and scholars alike and, above all, every citizen who is genuinely concerned about the present state of the nation and the world.
