Despite the lack of authority on the part of national or civilian governments, the civilian government nonetheless sees itself as responsible for the armed forces and the defense sector.

The intelligence agency and the military both insist on maintaining a say in the country’s dealings with other nations, making it difficult for the civilian administration to make progress on its development ambitions.

Due to the military’s refusal to let the civilian government in Pakistan make policies from a civil perspective, economic development is stifled, the value of the rupee declines, and foreign investment is discouraged. Furthermore, the majority of Pakistan’s development budget is funded by foreign sources rather than domestic sources, and the military continues to receive the bulk of the country’s tax revenue.

Firstly, it is clear that no civilian administration in Pakistan has ever finished its term before it was overthrown, either by a coup d’état or allegations of corruption. In order to effectively complete their term in office, they have to set plans for development to advance the country and improve the overall situation.

The military and intelligence agencies, however, prevent the civilian government from establishing peace and prosperity for its citizens by fomenting conflict and instability among the nations in order to increase their own incomes.

Even on a global scale, when Pakistan’s position in regional events is significant, the United States or other major player nations will meet with the Pakistani army chief. The promotion of instability in the region immediately around Afghanistan, for example, serves two purposes: on the one hand, it attracts international contributors; on the other, it keeps the Pashtun tribes involved in battles and bloodshed.

The primary motivation for this objective is to maintain the status quo in the bordering tribal regions of Afghanistan, while also sending a message to nations in the region with an interest in the battle against terrorism. Pakistan’s armed forces want to utilize this excuse to get access to the anti-terror financing provided by the United States and other Western nations.
