Pakistan faces the challenge of Talibanization

Pakistan faces the challenge of Talibanization, process of making something similar to the Taliban through the imposition of an ideology based on a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam, especially in Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the western part of the country. Tehreek-e-Taliban and various militant groups in tribal areas and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa poses a security threat to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Religious radicalism is the root cause of terrorist threats to Pakistan. Religious extremism and terrorism pose a great threat to China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Several countries argue that CPEC poses a threat to their economic interests and therefore it impacts their state. Indian involvement is another major challenge of CPEC. India thinks that CPEC puts Pakistan in a favourable position along the Arabian Sea. There is reliable evidence that proofs that RAW has set up a plan to sabotage CPEC in Pakistan.
Gwadar port is used for trading among countries and is also perceived as a trade monopoly in Gulf countries. So, the next challenge concerns our close friends; UAE. India has initiated “Chabahar Port” as a competitor for Gwadar port which connects Central Asia and UAE.
Norzais, Ghilzai, Alekozai, Durrani and Eshaqzais are Pashtun tribes of Afghanistan and they provide support to insurgents. Wazirs, Ahmadzai and Mahsuds in northern and southern Waziristan also supports insurgent and it can affect CPEC. So, this is another challenge to CPEC.
