Policing Terrorism and Jihadist Tendencies

Abstract: The focus of this paper is to examine religious threats in relation to terrorism and jihadist tendencies. Islam as one of the prevailing religions in the world prohibits the killing of civilians and religious pundits in the process of ‘holy jihad or holy war’, through misinterpreted verses of the holy Qur’an by radical leaders (jihadists or Imams). These verses are usually cited by critics to justify the inherently violent nature of Islam and ‘theology of hate’ as a focus to legitimize unconditional warfare (jihadist tendencies). However, some religious scholar’s link jihadists’ tendencies to Islam, in spite its transnational order. This paper also deconstructs traditional narratives of jihad and youthful doctrine of hate.
