The Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) is a variant of the Islamic State (IS). According to intelligence units, most of the Pakistanis are involved in this organization. The Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) is also known as ISIS-K. It is estimated to have 1500 to 2200 terrorist fighters. It was also established near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Haqqani Network

The Haqqani network has skilled fighters carrying out major attacks. These fighters are technically adept and capable of making explosive devices and rockets. The organization has good relations with al-Qaeda. The UN Security Council report about this organization said that it plays a large role in association with regional and foreign extremist organizations with terrorist organizations operating in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border areas.


The word ‘Taliban’ in Pashto language means student or student. The organization emerged in the 1990s in northern Pakistan. It is believed that this movement, mainly of Pashtun people, was started by people associated with madrasas teaching Sunni Islamic religion. According to reports, Saudi Arabia used to fund these madrassas in Pakistan at that time. In its early stages, the Taliban claimed to establish peace and security. But at the same time, when he came to power, he used to talk about establishing rule on the basis of Islamic law Sharia and also used to run violent campaigns for it. The Taliban ruled Afghanistan once more from 1996 to 2001 and returned to power in Kabul.
