The recent developments in Pakistan’s politics particularly the relations between the civilian government and military, in the background of troubled US-Pakistan relations exacerbated by the November killing of Pakistan soldiers by US drones and killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May, will have far reaching implications not only for Pakistan, but also for Afghanistan, South Asia, and far beyond.

The killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, leader of Al Qaeda in Arab Peninsula, on 30 September 2011 emerged as a big jolt to the radical organization. The incident took place within five months of the killing of Osama bin Laden, the chief of Al Qaeda, in the Pakistani city of Abbotabad in May this year. While the killing of bin Laden weakened the organization as a whole, the killing of al-Awlaki will definitely weaken the organization in Arab world.

The recent bomb blasts at three locations in Mumbai that killed about 20 people and injured about 130 people have brought into focus not only the vulnerability of big Indian cities, but also the rise of a particular variety of homegrown extremist group called Indian Mujahideen. The attacks also pricked the claims of authorities that after the Mumbai attack of 2008, Indian security and intelligence agencies have been successful enough to foil terrorist plans and attacks.

It will be naive to believe that the menace of terrorism will wither away with the death of Osama bin Laden in the morning hours of 2nd May 2011. At present juncture it will be difficult to predict what exact course the international terror menace will take in the era after Osama bin Laden, the most inspirational figure among the terrorists worldwide. In fact, the value of Osama was not in his person himself, but rather in the inspiration he was evoking among the terrorists worldwide...

The killing of Maulana Showkat Ahmed Shah on 8 April 2011 besides silencing a voice of moderation in Kashmir, also gave rise to the prospects of hardening of the radical agenda towards promoting violent means for conflict resolution in Kashmir. Within a week of his death, the radical pronouncements have been reinforced, with the radical leaders demanding for plebiscite (dormant few months back), inviting outside powers like the UK to intervene in the conflict...

The 21st century in its first decade has witnessed strengthening and mushrooming of terrorist activities across the globe. The fact remains that like any massive organisation terrorist groups having wider networks can not work effectively without adequate funding.

EPOS Insights
The prospects of peace in the Indian subcontinent post-26/11 appear bleak. The meeting of the top leaders of India and Pakistan at the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg on 16 June 2009 did not bring any respite to the peace seekers in the subcontinent as the pronouncements aftermath added only to the fragile nature of bilateral relations.
