With the ever increasing political and economic stability in the world of today, many countries have become extremely dangerous to live, visit and stop over at. There are various reason which contribute towards making them very dangerous especially for foreigners but not just them as locals face trouble in these countries too. Here is a list of Top 10 Most Dangerous Countries In The World 2020 in order to inform everyone out there to stay safe even if you are visiting these places.
10) North Korea
Korea ever since its split from Japan into two different countries namely North and South Korea has never been the same. North Korea has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world in this year due to its authoritarian rule that no one from the outside world really knows about. There is heavy degree of poverty and inequality and the fact that the government does not do anything to help better the condition of the North Koreans makes the situation even worse. War with South Korea has been one of the major factors behind its instability
Venezuela is one of those countries which is sleeping under a big blanket of corruption. Illegal practices especially activities like drug smuggling are very common in various parts of the country. There is also economic instability in the country which ultimately leads to poverty. These poor people are often indulged in activities like robberies and theft making this country one of the most unsafe places in the year 2020. The bad thing is that there is not much being done in order to better the condition of this otherwise beautiful country.
Pakistan is a beautiful country which is blessed with almost all the good things. However, there is a sad and dark side to the country which is the fact that it is a victim of terrorist activities and has been fighting a war on terror since the last 30 years, other factors like corruption, lack of law and order and a proper policy to tackle with these issues is what makes Pakistan one of the most dangerous places to be this year. The Army is taking an active effort in making Pakistan a safer place but there is still a long way to go for this country.
Mexico faces a serious problem in terms of corruption and the corruption over there basically leads to the unstable, rather terrible situation in terms of security. The main cause behind this issue is that criminals go scot free. The police is not very vigilant and there is a serious problem of drug smuggling and trafficking in and from Mexico. Street crimes like theft and robbery are very common hence, it is definitely one of the most dangerous places to be in the world of today.
6) Democratic Republic of Congo
Since the last 19 years, the Democratic Republic of Congo has been in a turmoil like situation. The country has been going through a civil war which has led to her becoming one of the poorest nations in the world. The problems do not stop there for Congo as there are scores of diseases which have erupted in the extremely unhealthy (according to global standards) conditions present in the entire country. There is not much development in the country and people seek refuge in doing crimes making it a dangerous place to live in or visit.
Guatemala is famous for its street crimes which happen almost on a daily basis there. These street crimes are not just what makes this country particularly dangerous for tourists but also the fact that valuable possessions like vehicles are also stolen in the country and that too right on the main and busy roads. There is an ever increasing problem of murders which happen in the country and hardly any culprit is caught. The law and order of this country is also very weak.
One of the major reasons why Sudan falls on one of the top spots of this list is that Sudan is being run in the name of religion Islam and not just that but false interpretations of Islam. There is massive slavery in the country even till today and the poverty levels are extremely high making the people vulnerable to performing all sorts of crimes. Ever since the war, the country has not been able to recover and criminals just keep increasing there with each passing day.
Iraq is one of the most dangerous places in the world owing to the fact that the country has not been fully recovered from the US invasion into Iraq in the year 2003 and also, the rise if the banned terrorist outfit ISIS which is causing trouble not just for Iraq but also many other parts of the world. it is a pro Sunni organization which is indulged in various kinds of terrorist activities and sadly many people are joining it every day and supporting its cause. Everyday killings in Iraq have become a routine business in the country.
Afghanistan somewhat faces the same kind of situation as Iraq does as there is serious problem of tribal crimes and terrorist activities happening in Afghanistan ever since the Red Army walked into the region and the ‘mujahedeen’ were created to fight them. Here also the misinterpretation of religion is prevalent making the people blindly follow what is being told to them by local religious clerics. The bad economy is what basically makes young Afghani boys join the terrorist groups and indulge in crimes.
The top most dangerous country on the list is Syria and the main reason behind it is that fact that Syria is extremely unstable in terms of the politics in the country. The Shia and Sunni divide in the region is what led to war crimes in the country and finally, banned organizations like ISIS have been able to form a government of their own along with the already present sitting government in the country. The country looks like some ruins due to massive bombings and fights that break out almost every day over there.
