ISIS Quickly Growing In Pakistan

Although ISIS has recently been eradicated in some countries, the Islamic State has recently grown in numbers in Pakistan. Most seem to be found near the border of Afghanistan, where the war has been rampant.

the Pakistan Institute for Peace reported:

Some new challenges are rearing their heads like the emergence of self-radicalized individuals and small terrorist cells, growing incidence of religious extremism including on educational campuses, persisting cross-border attacks by Pakistani militants relocated to Afghanistan, and increasing footprints of Daesh [ISIS] in parts of the country and convergence of its fighters in Afghanistan near Pakistani border.

These have made Pakistan’s countering terrorism efforts even more challenging, which are also evolving in line with the changing regional scenario especially the pressure mounted by the US administration.
