? Last week Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that Turkey is ready “for any cooperation in the fight against terrorism” But Turkey’s dilemma is far more grave than its leaders realise Indeed Turkey’s current situation resembles the early years of Pakistan’s sponsorship of the Taliban The Islamic State is recruiting militants in Turkey And failure to clean its own house now could lead Turkey down the path of “Pakistanisation” whereby a resident jihadist infrastructure causes Sunni extremism to ingrain itself deeply within the fabric of society Although Turkey now recognises the threat it has yet to come to terms with its own responsibility for helping to create it As Francis J Ricciardone Jr the former American ambassador to Turkey has pointed out Ankara supported radical groups including the Nusra Front Indeed during the early days of Syria’s civil war jihadist groups funnelled fighters and resources through Turkey into Syria Turkey’s intervention in the Syrian civil war parallels Pakistan’s support of the Taliban to affect the course of the Afghan civil war But the jihadism abetted by Pakistan did not remain across the Afghan border Turkey may now be witnessing the beginnings of a similar blowback While the magnitude of Turkey’s recent engagement of jihadist proxies isn’t comparable to Pakistan’s long history of jihadist sponsorship the late prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s ill-fated relationship with the Sunni extremists of Pakistan’s Deobandi movement is still instructive for Turkey Pakistan’s experience with blowback began prior to Bhutto’s tenure when General Zia ul-Haq’s regime backed mujahideen militias as proxies to combat Soviet forces in Afghanistan Organised by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate with assistance from the United States and Saudi Arabia the recruitment networks within Pakistan started a radicalisation process among segments of Pakistan’s population In 1994 Bhutto began to abet militancy to secure Pakistani objectives in Afghanistan The Bhutto government facilitated a paramilitary force of thousands of madrasa students to cross the border and take control of Afghanistan’s Kandahar province With Pakistan’s help this militia of “Taliban” literally “students” conquered large swaths of Afghan territory and declared its commander Mullah Omar to be caliph Their militancy soon crossed the border After the initial stage of mobilising volunteers and weapons for jihad in Afghanistan a second phase developed in which Pakistan witnessed a wave of anti-Shiite violence including bombings of Karachi’s major Shiite mosques by the Taliban’s sister organization in Pakistan Sipah-e Sahaba The Turkish government’s decision to turn a blind eye to IS activity within its borders has similarly led to the extremists’ increasing influence in certain areas of Turkey’s major cities The recent and unprecedented arson attacks on Shiite mosques in Istanbul may indicate that Turkey is entering this second phase Pakistan’s final and most dangerous stage of extremism occurred when the flow of militants and resources was reversed Turkey has not experienced this stage yet But the IS may find fertile recruiting ground among Turkey’s 13 million Syrian refugees If the IS’s Turkish networks remain intact Turkey runs the risk that homegrown militants will be empowered by the return of fighters from IS

sequel ten years later “After finishing Udaan Vikram and I used to joke that we will start shooting its sequel ten years later in 2019 It started off as a joke but there was some seriousness attached to it from where I see it” Rajat told PTI The 27-year-old actor who will reprise his role as Kartik in Bindaas web series Girl in the City 2 says he and Motwane talked about exploring the chances of making the second installment to inspired by Hollywood filmmaker Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy “We were pretty intrigued by Linklater’s approach of creating every part of the ‘Before’ series where part released in a gap of ten years We had thought of doing something similar So hopefully in 2020 we will see Udaan 2 “Both as an actor and individual it will be super exciting an Udaan trilogy happens” Rajat says When asked about how well is the Indian cinema dealing with the coming-of-age movies the actor says “We have started exploring this genre It’s been fairly recent but it has begun “For me Dil Chahta Hai was a story of three friends but at the same time it was a trendsetter in the genre of coming-of-age movies Wake Up Sid is another cool example” More from the world of Entertainment: Often it is seen in Bollywood that if one formula works most of the filmmakers want to cash in on it but Rajat says that really doesn’t work “Udaan was a wonderful film as well not just because it was mine But once you make one Udaan now everybody else wants to 4-5 different Udaans It doesn’t work like that” Rajat says Bollywood will be quintessentially incomplete without its singing-dancing routine because they drive the masses to the theatres “Bollywood’s song and dance will stay as it’s our hallmark While traveling people know me talk to me knowingly that I come from Indian cinema That’s our reach Such films turn out to be the major money-spinners for the industry which is equally important for the trade to stay afloat” Rajat also says young directors are doing a
