The objective of this study is to analyze the phenomenon, causes of anti-Americanism after 9/11. This is a global phenomenon which cannot be linked with any specific state. Anti-American feeling is not against the people of the US (United States of America), but it is all about the policies taken by the US. It did not emerge at once but flourish with gradual development. After the incident of 9/11, policies taken by the US administration become the reason of hostile feelings not only in Pakistan but in many other Muslim states also. Major reasons of anti-American sentiment in Pakistan include the participation of Pakistan in war on terror, dual policy of America to achieve her interests, drone attacks, close collaboration with India and her intervening steps in social, political and economic spheres. Both governments should try to understand each other point of view. The sovereignty of Pakistan must be respected and the leadership of Pakistan tries to initiate steps to make Pakistan internally stable.
