In April 2022, while Pakistan is getting bogged down in partisan chaos threatening to turn violent, an umpteenth crisis pits Prime Minister Khan against the opposition. Defeated by a vote of no confidence, the former national sports icon turned politician gave way with little grace to a 23rd head of government. But in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a change of leader rarely rhymes with serenity... A quarter later, the governmental 'facelift' has had little effect on the myriad of ills precipitating this South Asian nation further towards the precipice, even though the regional environment (return of the Taliban to Afghanistan a year earlier) and the international context (shockwaves from the Russian invasion of Ukraine; exacerbation of China's strategic ambitions; pandemic of Covid) add considerably to the uncertainty.As Pakistan celebrates in 2022 its 75th anniversary, what does it have in store for its 226 million citizens, its neighbors, and the international community? This book proposes to nourish the readers' reflection on the 'Pakistani patient', and presents to the stakeholders some recommendations likely to keep the country away from the claws of chaos.
