Fundamentalism in Central Asian Republic

Author(s) Sonali Kumari

Abstract This research paper examines the complex dynamics of radicalization and extremism in the Central Asian republics. Fundamentalism calls for a return to fundamental principles that are considered original and pure. It is characterized by a rigorous devotion to certain texts, dogmas, or ideologies. Against the backdrop of porous borders and socio-economic instability, Central Asia, strategically located at a crossroads between different economic areas linking the West and the East, must deal with the urgent threat of extremism. The terrorist attack in Kunduz, the end of the ISAF mission, and Pakistan's Zarb-e-Azb operation near the Afghan border are just some of the recent events that highlight how serious this problem has become in the region. Although there are not many large, well-known terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda, there are many regional extremist movements that are difficult to identify and understand. To clarify what elements, influence the rise of fundamentalism in Central Asia, this secondary research summarises the existing knowledge. By looking at the socio-economic vulnerabilities and geopolitical background, the work aims to offer insights that will lead to more effective preventive measures. The study aims to contribute to a thorough understanding of regional dynamics as extremism continues to spread in Central Asia. This will enable international cooperation and informed policy decisions to counter the growing threat of fundamentalism in the heart of Asia.
