The pervasive dilemma of Pakistan relates to the internal structure of this country and the involvement of foreigners. Ethnic and territorial conflicts, political instability, lack of economic and social development, transnational threats, organized crime and, finally, regional and international powers' rivalries have been the most important security challenges in Pakistan. Given the current situation in Pakistan, this paper seeks to answer the question that what factors behind the rise of the security crisis in Pakistan after the independence of Pakistan? The method of this research is descriptive-explanatory and Data gathering was carried out by library and document research. The most important findings of the research indicate that, a complex and multi-faceted combination of internal and external factors that have amplifying effects on each other, have led to the formation of a security crisis in Pakistan. The innovation of this study is to explain Pakistani developments from the perspective of Third World Security Studies and from the viewpoint of Little theory of security.
