RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM IS A THREAT TO SOCIETY: SOCIAL ANALYSIS OF CENTRAL ASIAN COUNTRIES
In recent years, the world community has faced a problem of unprecedented scale and consequences, which today is far from not only being resolved, but also far from adequate comprehension. We are talking about the rapid spread of various forms of social violence, among which extremism in all its varieties and in almost all spheres of society's life poses a particular social threat. Religious extremism poses a particular danger as a threat from extremism. He is not associated with any one religious system or community. Religious extremism is inextricably linked with terrorism and fundamentalism. The situation is aggravated by the fact that society, the state, science turned out to be incapable of decisively and effectively reacting to the surge of manifestations of extremism in general and religious extremism in particular, believing that as science develops, religion will fall into the past. However, events at the end of the last century showed the possibility of a religious renaissance. Among the reasons for this phenomenon is the failure of the secular authorities to effectively solve many socio-economic problems. This fully applies to modern countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
