THE EFFECTS OF TERRORISM ON THE POLITICS OF PAKISTAN, A POST 9/11 SCENARIOS
Humans are no longer safe anywhere on the planet due to rising levels of violence and Terrorism. Terrorists are usually motivated by one of four forces: socialism, religious intolerance, nationalism, or exclusionism. This paper intends to investigate the definitions of violence and Terrorism and their impact on Pakistani politics, particularly in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States. Terrorism and religious fanaticism have developed as strange phenomena that have posed a huge threat to the world since the Cold War. Terrorism had infiltrated every nook and cranny of human safety. On September 11, 2001, the events ushered in a sea change in global politics. The United States has spearheaded the fight against Terrorism, and it has had negative consequences for world politics in general and Muslim states in particular. Its causes and effects on the social, political, economic, and ethnic levels and states' involvement in acts of violence and Terrorism to accomplish their intended outcomes in a specific region will be discussed. In recent years, the world has seen an increase in violence and terrorist acts; however, Pakistan has improved its position on the peace front and seen a decrease in these acts as a result of its work on a politically and militarily combined action plan known as the National Action Plan in the aftermath of the Army Public School incident on December 16, 2014.
