Full recordShow full item record
AbstractEmotional flow cannot be stemmed due to historical critic within Islamic community. As a result of its global phenomenon is self-acclaimed that Islam is the best among others as value and power. This fact drives the thing into afore new perspective along with new themes such as Wahhabism, Salafism, Islamist, Jihadism, etc. The increasing attacks on non-Muslim also shows that religious majority in every country tends to be arrogant as it thinks it has power in its hands and targets minorities. Radical Islam is not merely an extreme version of Islam. Rather, it is a cultural-social ideology dominating all aspects of life. Like many violent totalitarian movements, its primary objective is to dominate all those within its reach and suppress all other ideologies, movements and beliefs in its path. Radical Islam draws on widely accepted Islamic religious philosophy and customs. However the movement also draws heavily on dangerous ideas that negate basic human rights and freedoms of expression. Radical Islam's arsenal is diverse and dangerous. Terrorism is only one of the tactics used by radicals, with new tactics arising every day. Some are more subtle such as the use of textbooks, while others are outright violent, such as terrorizing those who embrace freedom of speech.
