Terrorism in Pakistan has many causes and effects. The root causes are religious extremism, war in Afghanistan, poverty, social inequality, and illiteracy. Some of the main effects are bombings, killings, and assassinations especially of police and military personnel, damage to tourism, and a bad image to the country. Religious extremism is caused by Madrasas (a school and hostel attached to a mosque in which religious teaching is given). The effects of these are terrorism, bombings, and killings. Here is an example of religious extremism.
The terrorists of Lal Masjid wanted to make their own Islamic Government and would not listen to anybody. So, a military operation was done by the Pakistan Army.
Many people were killed in the mosque. Poverty, illiteracy, social inequality too are causes of terrorism. All these have made the poor of the northern areas unhappy with the government and other rich people. Because of this unhappiness, many poor people have become terrorists. Pakistan is with America against the Taliban.
The effect of this is that the terrorists of Taliban have also started attacking Pakistan. As a result of terrorism, Pakistan has got a bad image and most of the foreigners have stopped visiting or have left this country. Therefore, in this terrible time we must have good leaders in this country. The leaders we have do not control the country well enough. To improve the situation, we need to get rid of these leaders who think of themselves more than the country and its people.
Pakistan has the most terrorists.
