Institutionalized extremists in Pakistan a threat to region
 The road rallies in Pakistan which were started few days ago, have been vasted and influenced other cities beside Islamabad.
It has been said that as a result of clashes of Army units with demonstrators at least one person was killed and over two hundred including Army soldiers were injured. 
These demonstrations caused government order be threatened in most cities of Pakistan and official business be led towards unwanted vacation, which were started after the Federal minister of justice exerted a change in the text of swearing formula of Parliament members. The demonstrators who were said to have been strongly influenced by religious extremists, considered this change as an insult to Islam Prophet and asked the government to dismiss minister of justice.
Although later the government removed this change and improved the text of swearing formula but this reform failed to provide satisfaction of the demonstrators and prevent continuation of demonstrations.
There is a narrative that these demonstrations have been organized in fact in close coordination with Army intelligence who has close ties with religious extremists and its aim was to pressure the civilian government in which the ruling Muslim League Nawaz faction has taken position at its top. This narration is based on this that indeed the religious extremism is a weapon created by ISI and is supported by it and hundreds thousands madrassa and extremist organizations and individuals have been created toward implementation of programs and polices of I.S.I against India and other countries.
Whatever it be it explains a reality that extremism in Pakistan has deep and vast roots and since long years religious schools and organizations have existed here and are operating extensively and are in fact supporter of Pakistan hegemonistic polices which are exploited against India for mobilization of human forces among India people. The Pakistan Army which is indeed main ruler of this territory, has since early days defined strongly anti-India polices and developed a type of religious extremism and supported it that can be used in essential opportunity for achieving of planned targets and goals of Army among ordinary Indians.
This extremist reflection has not been sans headache for Pakistan too. Certain notorious extremist parties and movements and in general extremist religious reflection in Pakistan have always been creating headache for Pakistan and been considered as a potential threat and fire under ashes for stability and security of Pakistan.
There have always been certain concerns that these parties would one day turn their rifles against stability and security of Pakistan and even endanger its political stability and would cause dismantling of Pakistan political system or at least parts of Pakistan as a number of these groups including TTP have already launched destabilizing attacks against Pakistan security system and Army.
But the potential danger of this extremist reflection can never be restricted to Pakistan and they have posed serious threat to the region and the world. Afghanistan and India have been more vulnerable than others from these extremist activities.
