– Mehmet Murat ildanRate it:
Animals that have more defense forms are also the most sensitive to attack, such as the turtles on their hulls or tracks, that when they leave their cocoons, they become one of the most beautiful insects.

Animesh Roul, executive director of Society for the Study of Peace and Conflict, a New Delhi-based think tank, said the time had come for a change of approach for security agencies involved in countering groups such as IS. “I had someone ask me about IS camps and leaders in Bangladesh. Headquarters, organisations, structures are things of the past. The IS is a completely different beast,” he told Hindustan Times. “Bangladesh should be an area of focus for us despite the Dhaka government’s repeated denials of the presence of IS and Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). The infrastructure for radicalisation, such as madrasas, exists there and this presents an opportunity for IS and AQIS,” Roul said. “Besides, there is a lot of evidence of the presence of Bangladeshis from Britain and Canada in the ranks of the IS.”
