Internal security is the source of strength of any country, which directly impacts her foreign relations, economy, political stability, military strength, national morale, and social values. On the contrary, a state that is internally vulnerable runs a high risk of disintegration, and history is replete with such states. Pakistan is presently passing through probably the worst time of her history. It is confronted with numerous internal and external challenges that are impacting on her national security spectrum. Every country needs a strong, viable and sustainable socio-economic variable for growth. Internal security requires harnessing and orchestrating all elements of national power to achieve the desired results and no single instrument can work, therefore political process backed up by effective force structures, supplemented by economic initiatives and cooperation of regional and international players operating in the area is the solution to the current crisis. Based on the contemporary challenges that Pakistan is facing this article examines the dynamics of internal security and associated challenges impacting the national security of Pakistan. This study makes a point that it’s not only the internal faultiness that punctures the systematic approach rather the global and regional political environment that causes perpetual instability. The research is deductive in nature and uses a mixed-method approach to provide remedial strategies.
