Abstract

Pakistan has for decades fought the war against terrorism. Although it wasn’t entirely a new concept for the nation, terrorist attacks did significantly accelerate after 9/11 and Pakistan’s consequent agreement to assist the United States in its “War on Terror.” Since then Pakistan has fought consistently against terrorism from both inside and outside its borders. In this thesis, I analyze the counter-terrorism measure set in place prior to the 9/11 and their implementation. I also explain in the length the counter-terrorism operations and policies undertaken by the Pakistani State and their success and failures. Lastly, I analyze the larger structural fault lines within Pakistan’s counter terrorism policies, possible measure to overcome them and how the State is likely to move forward in the face of the political situation in Afghanistan
