عنوان مقاله [English]
Objective: After the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, it seems that Pakistan is the normal destination of the group enlargement. This is why Pakistan not only has significant Muslim population but also subjects to political instability whether religious conflict or military coup d’état. So, the article aims to assess real ratio of ISIS influence in Pakistan.
Method: It seems that simultaneous co-assessing factors and obstacles of ISIS success in the country and comparing them to each other could be helpful to evaluate real threat of ISIS for Pakistan. The hypothesis will be tested by descriptive-comparative method. The base of the testing is theoretical model of Justin George on connection between terrorism and failed states.
Results: Findings show that it is impossible to consider Pakistan as a normal destination for ISIS. But the group is subject to serious barriers in the country.
Conclusion: regarding the Pakistan situations, it is possible to conclude that different factors including US-Afghanistan’s Taliban talks, agreements between Iran and Pakistan on cross-borders terrorism, and tensions in Indo-Pak relations would alter ISIS circumstances in Pakistan.
