During this lecture we had discussed about the conflict which is related to me and including to my life too because in this university given so many differences of conflict that refer to culture, religion, daily life and so on. Those things are important for me during my study here as international student beside that it help me to adapt myself to the social in the future easily. However, when people are talking about the conflict they usually think that is relate on the war because it’s become the several issues that is happening now in some countries are facing with it. Moreover, the word of conflict it doesn’t mean only the war because it has differences of meaning and dissimilar kind of even too such as culture, religion and so on.
Conflict is a fact of life which made us unique and different others it often occurs because of a lack of respect for one another’s need and views. It can provide an opportunity for new social and political systems to be established and can help to shape the future.
We discussed about the type of conflict and we can identify these types and according to what we can categories them. Firstly, Inter-religion conflict that happened between two different religions as an example Thailand between baddish and Muslims. Second one is ‘intra-state conflict’ refers to a situation where armed forces of a government are in conflict with the group of resident forces for example in Sudan .Third, type of conflict is ‘inter-state conflict’ refers to conflict within governments of different countries such as Thailand and Cambodia in the case of landscape between Thailand border and Cambodia border. Fourth, type of conflict is ‘non-state conflict’ which is the conflict between two different groups other than governments. Political conflict is the next type which can be remarkably noticed at many places around the world Ethno religion conflict and Political religion conflict in this case the political could influences by political issues as an example Syria.
In general, terrorism can be described as the unlawful or threatened use of force or violence against persons, societies, cultures or governments in order to produce a desired revolution that suits and feeds the goals of particular parties. The change might be political, religious or social in nature. It can be broken down into two categories: international and domestic.
Terrorism has been around for centuries, although it’s been defined or described differently throughout the years by different parties. Actually the definition differs according to the ideology or purpose of specific people and entities. Thus to someone who are terrorists, to some other people they are treated as freedom fighters or righteous protestors. It becomes extremely dangerous when a terrorist believes that he has nothing to lose and devotes himself for suicidal missions. Also there are brain-washing or misleading of leaders who want to attain own goals and use young generations as their tool. This is happening in many religious groups of the world who think they are the only right parties to establish the society.
The modern world appears to be aggressive to Islamist extremists than any other type of terrorist. It should be clearly acknowledged that not all Muslims are terrorists and not all terrorists are Muslim. In fact, Muslims are in as much danger under the conspiracies of U.S and other Non-Muslim states, who actually treat Islam as their reason of failure in future. Thus the policy is more like “Extract the Poison, Pull out the fangs, and kill the snake using its own venom”.
Therefore, I realized that conflict is something that we can found in our life but, we have to know what the causes of conflict as well, know how to solve it, avoid, and how we going to deal with it in the future. So it make sense that there would be different types of conflict to accommodate each level. I am now more aware of each type and I feel I am better prepared to deal with any type of conflict that I may encounter.
