Australia should keep under surveillance new Muslim converts and those returning from Syria and Iraq after the recent attack in Sydney cafe, Abdul Basit, security analyst associated with the Singapore-based terrorism research center told Sputnik Tuesday.
Australia should “keep an eye on all those who have been involved in any kind of radicalization activity online or off-line,” Basit, senior analyst at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) and a security analyst associated with International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR) told Sputnik.
Second measure mentioned by the specialist is “keeping an eye on the new converts – those who are converting to Islam. They are the vulnerable segments who can be suspected of [provoking] radicalization and carrying out such attacks”.
