Description

The book is a focused area study of the emergence of the Taliban in Pakistan, with consequent repercussions for regional security. The book engages in profiling the Pakistani Taliban Warlords like Baitullah Mehsud (who has been categorised as more dangerous than Osama Bin Laden), Fazlullah (who has transformed a hitherto peaceful Pakistani area into a Taliban and Al-Qaeda haven) and Mangal Bagh etc. in minutiae and bringing their organisations, personal traits, terror tactics and links with terrorist organisations under extensive scrutiny. A detailed analysis of the widespread ideology of Deobandi and Salafi thought patterns throughout Pakistan's tribal areas is undertaken, along with the international and Pakistani responses to rise of the same. The impact of Talibanisation on society and its aftermaths are discussed, with a view to projecting future trends. The resurgence of the Taliban in Pakistan, their organisation centres, their ideological basis and seminaries from where they get their religious sanction are mapped out in meticulous detail, along with a detailed look at suicide terrorism in Pakistan, besides in depth analysis of the factors radicalising the Pakistani society. This is the first book of its kind which engages with the phenomenon of the emergence of the Taliban in Pakistan in such minute detail, and will prove invaluable to strategists and general readers alike about the subject.
