Terrorism, extremism and separatism are among the dangers created by the new conditions of political and geopolitical games, but are one of the main problems of modern world society. The presence of extremist organizations and terrorist organizations in the virtual space, especially in social networks, has created a situation in which the danger and threat to the stability of society will increase. The world reality shows that terrorist and extremist organizations through social networks and websites are trying to seriously threaten security and peace, independence and sovereignty of states by disseminating information of extreme nature, inciting national, religious and false hatred and hostility. Existing threats are forcing nation states to take more measures in the direction of ensuring information security and protecting the healthy ideology of their citizens. Cyberspace, which today is often considered an uncontrolled and borderless territory, is being used by extremist groups as a primary means of realizing preconceived goals. Virtual space has no borders, and extremist and terrorist organizations operate freely on social networks, using the Internet to disseminate biased, fake and radical materials and information, and want to have a negative impact on the state and all its values. Today, extremist groups are trying to realize their dirty goals in the information space, the Internet and social networks, and at the same time it is necessary for the state and society to take concrete measures. Certainly, one of the measures in this process is responding to extremist and biased articles.
Indeed, today the fight against extremism and terrorism must be waged collectively. Undoubtedly, harmony in the fight against extremism is the main factor in preserving peace and stability and a means of ensuring national security. Therefore, today it is necessary for each of us to be more active in defending and strengthening the independence and freedom and protecting the national interests of Tajikistan, which is our civic duty, and to be able to leave a developed, stable and sovereign state for future generations.
