From the day that Ansar-ul-Sharia Pakistan was announced, the story behind this group didn’t make sense. They were after an audience that Pakistan never expected could be radicalized – the educated middle class.
The Briefing Document provides a timeline since April 2017 of how the group came into existence in Pakistan, given weight in the media, and where we see the group’s own linkages in the region.
We hope it will be of assistance in understanding this new “terror” group in Pakistan.
