In the aftermath of 9/11, Pakistan had to change its foreign policy. Pakistan had to become US’s ally and put herself in the front which was called ‘War on Terror’. This obviously directed that Pakistan would have to change its foreign policy for Afghanistan and Kashmir as well. This change is policy was neither received well by the Taliban and their supporters nor in Afghanistan and Middle East. This entire scenario resulted in the changing of Pakistan’s geostrategic environment and the country was vulnerable to the great power itself. It was not something very hard to figure out that the country is in no shape to take on the US as Pakistan lacks resources, and military support. The military insecurity was particularly very troubling for Pakistan as it was the major reason. Bunch loyalties turned out to be more unverifiable and hard to access than any time in recent memory. Pakistan was exposed to threats both internally and externally. The militants expanded their activities and have attacked all the major cities of Pakistan especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhawa since then. Terrorism is one of the main threats that Pakistan faces even today and has become a great challenge for the army, the society and the system itself. Terrorism is damaging the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan. Here we will critically analyze the Vulnerable Governance and role of Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) in Post 9/11 period. We will critically analyze the role of Frontier Corps, and Rangers and Police in post 9/11 era from multi-dimensional aspects.
