The first challenge is Pakistan’s most progressive talibanization, process of making something similar to the Taliban through the imposition of an ideology based on a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam, especially in FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) and the west of the country. Pakistan faces potential security threats from Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and various militant groups in Tribal areas and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The militancy groups faces are a serious threat for the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The second challenge is the religious extremism and terrorism, which also pose a serious threat to China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Pakistan took a serious stance to control the terrorist threat and its main causes, i.e. religious radicalism.
The third challenge faced by Pakistan is Indian Involvement. Many countries argue that CPEC poses a strategic threat to their military and economic interests and has an impact on the state. India violently substances to CPEC, specified the atmosphere of a powerful geo – strategic struggle that put Pakistan in a favourable position along the Arabian Sea. In addition, there is reliable evidence that RAW runs a special cell set up to sabotage CPEC in Pakistan.
The fourth concerns our close friends, the UAE, while Gwadar is also a perceived challenge to its virtual trade monopoly in the Gulf countries. India, on the other hand, is also diligently promoting its own port with the name of the initiative ” Chabahar Port ” as an alternative to connecting Central Asia and Europe, with more outshot in the UAE than Gwadar.
The fifth is that the Pashtun tribes of Afghanistan provided relentless support to the insurgents and supported the insurgency, and the Taliban is closely linked to the Norzais, Ghilzai Alekozai, Durrani and Eshaqzais. In addition, Wazirs, Ahmadzai and Mahsuds in northern and southern Waziristan have also supported the insurgent cohort by organizing their diverse events in Afghanistan, which can also affect CPEC.
