MetadataShow full item record
Based on the empirical analysis of the terrorist activities, we can say that developed and globalized countries are more safer than the developing countries. The terrorist attacks are considerably low in these countries.To analyze the role of new technologies in terrorism and the actual use of ICT in terrorism, I have focused on the terrorist groups operating in Pakistan. These groups are taking advantage of these technologies in many ways like, Recruiting, Propaganda, Fund raising etc.Answer to the question of Islamic terrorist threat to the West again based on the empirical analysis. The analysis shows that Islamic terrorism is on continuous decline. Islamic terrorist groups are involved highly in other countries, especially Muslim majority countries. The analysis also showed that there is very less impact of the the new technologies on Islamic terrorism.
