Guided by the sole purpose of curbing extremism at grass-roots level, the newly formulated National Counter Extremism Policy (NCEP) by NACTA is being rolled-out. Bringing coherence in national education system, carrying out reforms in the tribal belt, putting weaker provinces on a par with the stronger ones, facilitating good governance, strengthening citizens’ trust in the state, ensuring prison reforms and reclaiming lost culture and traditions are some of the major goals of the NCEP. This was highlighted by The Daily Tribune, today.
The NCEP has pointed out several issues giving rise to extremism in the country, and recommended numerous measures to tackle them effectively.
The NCEP has been formulated by National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) after 14 months of deliberation with stakeholders, including political parties, religious leaders and scholars, business community, youth and legal fraternity for a cross-functional and multi-disciplinary input on issues.
At the government level, this is for the first time that the word ‘extremism’ has also been defined with words such as “having absolute belief in one’s truth with an ingrained sense of self-righteousness”.
