Politics in Pakistan like many other third world countries something directly but often indirectly shaped by externalities set by international players. Right-wing forces have been instrumental in Pakistan while setting national priorities including economy and foreign policies. Since the beginning of the Afghanistan war, the role of religious elements has never been marginalized.
Though the collapse of the World Trade Centre was an epic event yet the Islamic right-wing forces remained a force to be reckoned with. The spread of Islamic ideology imperceptibly created the genesis of nationalist feelings in the western world. The seething surge of such nationalistic thoughts impacted the electoral results in many developed countries including France, England or even USA. Initially, it was construed as an inward shift and a protest against globalization.
Many countries in Asia including Pakistan failed to comprehend the direction of the wind. Pakistan continued to be a safe haven for outfits engaged in terrorist activities. These outfits remained financially independent due to regular financial support from their financiers and non-state players.
