Analyzing Fear of Terrorism in Pakistan: A Review
Terrorism disturbs social integration by creating fear for people of becoming victims of its harmful results. People who exposed to violent conditions and poor socioeconomic conditions relatively develop feelings of anxiety and frustration, and risk of becoming potential victims on social, physical and emotional grounds. After 9/11, with world, Pakistan has observed sporadic series of terrorism and violent extremist bouts which have been analyzed arising from disorderly conditions on political, social, religious and economic levels. Vulnerability of becoming victim of terrorism has equally developed which has deeply affected the emotional response of people to a greater extent. How people perceive the threat of terrorism has not been studied in the Pakistani context on theoretical and methodological levels. It is expected that understanding of this problem will provide better insights for people, policymakers and academicians to devise effective polices for creating chances of peace and healthy environment.
