Four pronged strategy i.e. economic, political, administrative and military to deal with terrorism/extremism in coordination with the affected countries have resulted in destruction of Daesh’s Caliphate, Al-Queda’s bastion, restrictions on Pakistan based outfits, nipping of ‘Brotherhood’ in Egypt and bringing Taliban on the negotiation table, which has led to a virtual halt in the growth of terrorism/radicalisation. The butchery in the name of ‘Jihad’ by IS ultras led by Abu Bakr-al-Baghdadi (nom-de-jihad-e-caliphate), mobilizing Muslims worldwide. ‘O Muslims everywhere, raise your head high, for today – by Allah’s grace – you have a state and Khilafah (caliphate), which will return your dignity might, rights and leadership’ would remain a black spot in the human history as well as a warning sign against dastardly violence in the name of religion. However, it is not the time to celebrate the defeat of terrorism, but to continuously confront and eliminate the last vestiges of this octopus, because caliphate/jihad is a powerful rallying point for violent extremists and a potent threat against civilization as well as global security. In fact, Islamic terrorism in the name of vengeful revival of the ‘golden era’ is to be countered by a shape shifting movement of all stakeholders including the Middle-East based on a secular-political system of governance. There should be stoppage of creating distinction between ‘good’, ‘bad’ and ‘non-state actors’ etc. A greater resolve would be required to ban/bind up all Jihadist outfits and their offshoots, besides smothering their supply of armaments and finances. In context of the terrorist outfits based in Pakistan, the country is under pressure to take decisive action against these groups, simultaneously with a clear-cut policy to allow a repentant former militant to join the mainstream of the society, though after strict scrutiny. The terrorist group should be banned without the political and regional compulsions. The above consensus efforts would contain and root out this ghost, time and again, which has and will spoil the peace as well as tranquility of the world.
