Pakistan remains a breeding ground and supporter of global terrorism and is responsible for three times the terror risk to humanity that Syria poses, says a report. The report titled “Humanity at Risk – Global Terror Threat Indicant (GTTI)” was published by Oxford University and Strategic Foresight Group (SFG).
According to the GTTI, while the Afghan Taliban and the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) pose the maximum threat to international security, Pakistan is placed on top of the list of countries with the highest number of terrorist bases and safe havens. ISIS has attracted much of media space in the last five years. But with swift rise and fall of ISIS, the Al-Qaeda remains the most resilient network.
Until 2011, it was led by Osama bin Laden but now his son, Hamza bin Osama bin Laden has emerged, as what sections of the media describe, as the “new crown prince of terror”. The over 80-page report, which has been prepared to discuss security challenges in the next decade, presents an analytical framework for policymakers to tackle terrorism.
