ABSTRACT
In the wake of the watershed events of 9/11, terrorism has become a matter of great concern for every country across the globe. The United States combatively and fiercely reacted to 9/11 and since then the Islamic countries and particularly Afghanistan and Pakistan are on defensive. The Global war on Terror (WOT) was launched by the former President of United States George W. Bush in response to the September 11 attacks. Pakistan became the pivotal coalition partner and a Front Line State in this war against terror. This paper is an attempt to explain the gap between US expectations and delivery by Pakistan, and vice versa. The paper will argue the impact of this war on South Asian region with particular focus on Pakistan in multi-dimensional ways while discussing the ongoing insurgencies, foreign involvement, human rights violation, and internal policy makings in both countries and the difficulties confronting Pakistanis as US ally in the global war on terrorism. Finally the paper will suggest what policy changes Pakistan should make.
