Abstract

Although Pakistan was founded with a progressive and enlightened vision, the country's diversity has been decimated by extremism and violence. In Pakistan, youth radicalization is very common. This was due to factors such as a poor education system, socioeconomic determinants, and unequal economic opportunities across the society. The radical groups are targeting youth to carry out their agendas. The 9/11 attacks in the U.S. created the framework for radicalism among Pakistan's youth. Radicalism can be seen in many forms, including violent extremism and ethnic violence in Pakistan. However, there were immediate concerns about Pakistan's human development experience as a result of the emergence of jihadist violence in Pakistan. This research was done to identify risk factors for youth that lead them towards radicalization. It also looked at the sources and awareness of youth who are inclined towards radicalization. The research was qualitative in nature and exploratory in type. The researcher used Stratified sampling, which is a method of collecting data using a scheduled questionnaire. The Researcher used Simple random Sampling for both the distribution of Universities and the allocation of respondents
