56pc militants came from general edn background

Reveals a police research on arrested extremists
STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
56pc militants came from general edn background

Madrasa education cannot be solely blamed for the rise in militancy in the country because a larger share of the militants in custody came from the general education backgrounds, a top police officer said yesterday citing a recent research on arrested militants conducted by Bangladesh Police.

Additional deputy inspector general (intelligence) of the Anti-Terrorism Unit of Police, Md Moniruzzaman, said this while revealing the findings of a research at a seminar titled “Preventing Terrorism and Extremism through Community Engagement” at Brac University in the capital yesterday.

“According to a research conducted by the police headquarters, 56 per cent of those involved in militancy came from general education background,” he said.

The research had surveyed 250 people who were arrested between 2015 and 2017 for their involvement in militancy, the additional DIG said.

Among the arrested person, 56 per cent were from general education background, 22 per cent had received their education in madrasas.

The remaining 22 per cent were either did not get any education or had come from English medium background, he disclosed.

On the other hand, 80 per cent of those involved in religious extremism and terrorism were radicalised through the Internet and various social media platforms, the police official said.

The remaining 20 per cent were reportedly influenced by their acquaintances, according to the research.

"So, it's evident that one's educational background cannot be blamed for

radicalisation. Rather, everyone should

take preventive measures to fight terrorism," he said.
