عنوان مقاله [English]
One of the Takfiri groups which in recent years has committed violence and extremism in South West Asia is a group called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). This group grew up in a context of lack of democracy and citizen's right, political and social unawareness and with the logistic and financial support of regional and extra-regional power could survive for half a decade and put a serious challenge to regional governments in West Asia. ISIS as a group with extremist ideology and with its nature, objectives and a prospect which it draws for itself is a potential threat for Central Asian countries. The present article by applying the theory of confrontation with modernity and the theory of failed state wants to examine the possibility or impossibility of the emergence of ISIS in Central Asia. The authors of the article are of the view that a section of Islamist in Central Asia due to their opposition to modernity may come under the influence of ISIS thinking and this paves the ground for their presence in Central Asia specially that ISIS is leaving Syria and Iraq and they are searching for new places to continue their presence. Nevertheless the existence of authoritarian and relatively stable governments in Central Asia limits the possibility of the presence of this group. The methodology used in the paper is descriptive-analytical and the data have been collected form library sources and internet sites.
