Understanding suicide terrorism in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka

S. Y. Surendra Kumar, Mostafa Mahmud Naser

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Suicide attack, though not a new phenomenon, is the most virulent and horrifying form of terrorism that endangers the safety of the world today. It is the most dangerous modus operandi of modern terrorism which is a new development in the long history of martyrdom. Suicide attack has overturned the traditional concepts of terrorist attacks. When a suicide attack occurs in any country, it seems to be a slap not only to the state structure of that particular country, but also to humanity and civilization of the world community at large. A conclusion can also be drawn that after a successful suicide attack a suicide bomber not only obliterates the lives of many people, but also insults the value of his own life and ultimately degrades his own position as a human being.
