  1. IDENTIFY SEARCH

Most of them are vulnerable to the society and are willing to prove themselves. Some of the youngsters want to know “Who am I”, and to get an answer, they commit crimes and become terrorists.

 

“The personal pathway model suggests that terrorists came from a selected, at risk population, who have suffered from early damage to their self-esteem,” said psychologist Eric D. Shaw in a 1986 paper.

 

  1. POLITICAL AND SOCIAL INJUSTICE

Stanford professor Martha Crenshaw has written, “One of the strongest motivations behind terrorism is vengeance, particularly the desire to avenge not oneself but others.

When a person is deprived of his rights, he becomes angry and is likely to react negatively.

 

Usually the terrorists are the production of the restless societies we live in. Keeping the people under burden will end in their improper behaviour, leading them to act like criminals and terrorists.

 

  1. RELIGION CONFLICT

Religious conflicts play a vital role in someone’s life to make him live a positive or negative life. In case, you see that your religion is being disrespected, you will certainly react to control it. So yes, religion does plays an important role.

A study conducted by Dr Anneli Botha at the Institute for Security studies (ISS) shows that 87% of respondents gave religion as the reason why they joined al Shabab.

But I think religion could also be used as a de-radicalisation tool if we manage to create counter-narratives based on religious traditions.

 

  1. POVERTY AND LACK OF EDUCATION

Poverty has been defined as “the lack of ability, in any given circumstance, to get whatever is necessary for comfortable living.” Education can provide the necessary ability.

We believe that the war that should unify all nations is the war against poverty and the most effective weapon against poverty is education. The most effective way of helping people is by teaching and training them to help themselves. This is the only way to stop the terrorism affected by lack of education.

 

  1. THRILL ATTRACTS THEM

Extremist groups offer a cause to join. Ideology is very important but it is also about how people feel about the society they live in, according to experts. The appeal begin with thrill instead of violence. Once they get addicted extremist turns into them terrorist. Borum also cited boredom as part of the process by which youth become radicalized, saying, “They follow a general progression from social alienation to boredom, then occasional dissidence and protest before eventually turning to terrorism.”
