The USA’s President, Joe Biden has called Pakistan the world’s most dangerous country because of its nuclear stockpile, and he has expressed his concern saying that because of political instability and terrorist organizations in the country, the nuclear stockpile can get into wrong hands. Back in 2016 as well, when the USA’s President was Barack Obama, the country had put pressure on Pakistan’s erstwhile PM, Nawaz Sharif, to get 9 of his atomic hideouts guarded.
As per the USA’s Congressional Research Service report, there are 12 terrorist organizations like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, and Harkat-ul-Jihad, in Pakistan, and the networks of all these terror outfits are spread across foreign nations as well. According to a report by the South Asian Terrorism Portal (SATP), Pakistan has 45 terrorist organizations operating inside the country.
The USA’s tensions have hiked because of the removal of its army from Afghanistan last year, and the capture of the country’s control by the Taliban, and the USA is of the opinion that with it jointly guarding Pakistan’s nuclear stockpile, the threats associated can be averted. Brooking’s report suggests that not only Pakistan’s nuclear stockpile, but the extremist ideology, which has developed in the minds of around 2 crore children studying in Pakistan’s madrassas, is also a threat to the USA.
The USA believes that if civil-war like situations develop in Pakistan, then these students studying Sharia will side with the terrorist organizations only.
