Jihadi Terrorism is in the air today the world over. It has come to the centre stage of the world, which poses some pertinent questions. What has brought it about at this point of time in the chequered history of the world? Is it the arrogance of Western powers vis a vis the Muslim world? or the running sores of Palestine and Kashmir for example? But after the end of western imperialism since mid-20th century, Muslim countries of the Middle East have never been more free and vibrant as today. Palestine and Kashmir problems have been there since 1948, but there was no terrorism of the kind and on the scale as today. How come it has emerged as a major threat to peace now? So much is being said and written about Jihad but these vital questions have not been touched upon. That leaves a vaccum in the literature on the subject and this book is an effort at filling that.
