Bangladesh says no to extremism


Jihadist ideology struggles to take root in Bangladesh


Key Points

* The Jama'at-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh emerged from the Ahl-e-Hadith school of Sunni Islam and through a period of clandestine growth remained a narrow, closed group largely out of touch with the society it sought to transform.

* The group benefited from some international sources of funding. But it was essentially a low-budget operation with a purely domestic perspective and clearly limited technical and military capabilities.

* The speed with which the terrorist threat posed by the JMB was dismantled came as a reflection of the efficiency of the country's security and intelligence services provided they are acting in pursuit of clear-cut political directives

The rapid rise and fall of Jamaat ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh has served as a wake-up call for both the government and security services. Anthony Davis explains why those who view Bangladesh as a breeding ground for a Taliban-style revolution should think again.
