This book traces the emergence of Pakistan as a fountainhead of international terrorrism, another name for worldwide jihad. There were at least two major foundations of the jihadi mindset of Pakistani leaders. One was Wahabism/Salafism, journeying from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan--along with abundant money. The other major foundation of the jihadi mindset was the way the campaign for Partition of British India was conducted by the future leaders of Pakistan. This hatred could easily metamorphose after Partition into a jihad not only against resident Hindus (or Christians) after the birth of Pakistan, but also against other Pakistanis: East Pakistanis (who seceded to form the independent state of Bangladesh in 1971); Ahmadis and Shias inside Pakistan, who have been the targets of jihad by the dominant sect of Sunni Muslims. The book then focuses on the failures of the United States, which contributed vitally to the occurrence of 9/11, and on the subsequent War on Terror till the end of 2014. The United States has treated Pakistan as the principal ally in this War, and the book highlights the duplicitous conduct of Pakistani leaders, who have deceived all parties--the United States, Afghanistan, India and the entire world. The book also explores the feasibility of non-military solutions to Pakistan-based transnational terrorism, which is cross-border terrorism for India.
