This research paper takes into account the creation of Pakistan and its quest to establish a national identity separate from that of India. It revolves around the India threat factor in Pakistan’s perception. It seeks to trace the relationship of India and Pakistan since 1947. It attempts to understand and acknowledge the reason behind why Pakistan no longer desires to share its culture with India and wishes to establish a new identity through the process of Islamization. Besides studying what Islamization is and its impact it also studies how has this affected the Pakistani society as a whole. From the hostile environment between the two nations, it can be summed up as: Pakistan’s fear of Indian hegemony in the region, Pakistan being called a ‘failed nation’ by the rest of the world and its support to the militant groups in the name of Islam has provoked it to chose the path of Islamization which has led to adverse effects on their society as well as the rest of the world and has also led to the spread of Jihad.
