South Asia embodies a complex history, both ancient and contemporary, and is characterized by a wide heterogeneity of features, even on the level of security. Ancient India, which makes up the geographical landscape of contemporary South Asia, was a place that produced much in the canons of knowledge, crafts, agriculture, art, exotic garments, spices, and myriad other things. The landscape of historical India is today a divided set of boundaries that make up the countries of South Asia, some of which have been borne out of similarly vexatious elements of ancient conflicts. In the most recent, the splitting away of Pakistan from India was borne out of colonial input, religious discontent on the political level, and perhaps other factors at a time India was to become a sovereign country from imperial England. Terrorism itself, like the concepts of globalization and radicalization, has no concrete definition in global settings.
