The Most dangerous terrorist groups are being supported by Pakistan to continue their operations and misuse of weapons of mass destruction by them can undermine the human progress and its survival in the coming decade, says a study – ‘Humanity at Risk – Global Terror Threat Indicant (GTTI)’ by Oxford University and Strategic Foresight Group.
The report says, “If we look at the most dangerous terrorist groups, based on hard facts and statistics, we find that Pakistan hosts or aids majority of them. Also, there are a significant number of groups based in Afghanistan, which operate with the support of Pakistan”.
It said, “The rise of competitive extremism of all shades, misuse of weapons of mass destruction and economic disruptions can undermine human progress or even survival in the period from now until 2030. They are all interlinked with terrorism”.

The report mentioned about presence of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and the support he was getting from the country. It said that more than 200 terror groups are operating in the region of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Middle East and in parts of Africa. After Osama’s death his son Hamza bin Osama bin Laden is heading the Al-Qaida.
Report said, “The birth of Al-Qaida was in Pakistan and then Pakistan influenced Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden had a safe haven in a huge compound near the Pakistani military establishment in Abbottabad. The compound was much larger than the surrounding houses of retired Pakistani military officers. The occupants of the compound often bought expensive goods from a neighbourhood shop that most people in the vicinity could not afford. The presence of an important family in the compound was nothing but conspicuous”.
