Radical Islam gaining ground across the world, Western world needs to recognise it: Tony Blair

London, Aug 22 (UNI) Radical Islam has been gaining ground across the world over the past several decades, and many Muslim nations are becoming more Islamic in practice and discourse, yet the Western world is chary about recognising it, because if it had then the US-led coalition would not have agreed to pull out giving way to the Taliban, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said here on Sunday.
Blair, who has termed the decision to pull out of Afghanistan as “tragic, dangerous, unnecessary” and “not in their interests and not in ours”, has in an article said that “the Taliban is part of a bigger picture that should concern us strategically.”
In a piece titled, Why We Must Not Abandon the People of Afghanistan – For Their Sakes and Ours ‘, Blair, who is head of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, writes that while the 9/11 attack shocked the Western world because of its "severity and horror”, the “motivation for such an atrocity arose from an ideology many years in development”.
