Framing COVID-19 as the “wrath of God” against “infidels,” terrorists have exploited the coronavirus pandemic to spread their ideology, analysts from a Singapore-based think tank warned.
Experts from the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR), a think tank within the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore, reported these findings in a journal issue released on Thursday, April 23.
Abdul Basit, a research fellow with the ICPVTR, outlined the ways terrorists are exploiting the COVID-19 crisis, in his article “The COVID-19 Pandemic: An Opportunity for Terrorist Groups?” It was published in the center’s publication, Counter Terrorist Trends and Analyses, under the theme “COVID-19 and Terrorism.”
