Abstract


All acts of terrorism are liable to be criticized severely. Terrorism is considered by UNO in its all Millennium Development Goals (MDG) reports as a major stumbling block to the all-round development of humanity. But terrorist activities do not take birth in one day. These activities are the result of a strong ideology which by hook or by crook considers terror activities as legal and just on one hand and promotes them through various Medias particularity through religion on the other hand. Wahhabism is one of such an important ideology in this context. Today many strategic and geopolitical analysts are busy to know how the ideology of Wahhabism is helping in promoting the global terrorism. The ideology of Wahhabism is directly promoted by Saudi Arabia's government as the said country is a place of birth of this ideology as well as the founder of this ideology 'Muhammad Abdul Wahhab'. Wahhabism has promoted a feeling of intolerance for other religions which has led to large scale violence and deaths of countless innocent people of countries of Middle East Asia particularly Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Chechnya region of Russia, Afghanistan, India, Somalia, Nigeria, Libya etc.
In the present paper an attempt has been made to know the role of Wahhabism in the rise of global terrorism. What were the causes behind the rise of this ideology? How this ideology is spreading in different parts of world? What would be the geopolitical effects of spread of this ideology? Lastly, what type of measures are required to be taken as well as presently taken by various countries to counter Wahhabi and its associated Jihadist Ideologies?


Author Keywords: Terrorism, Humanity, Ideology, Medias, Violence and Jihadist.
