Nouman Ali Hashmi


The current research was conducted to find out the effect of “Impact of Death Anxiety and Hopelessness on Psychological Well Being among War Soldiers” who are fighting against Terrorism in Northern Areas. For this purpose data was collected from target sample soldiers deployed in district Bannu. The selection of sample based on the philosophy of operation Zarb –e- Azab. Results indicate that the death anxiety and hopelessness develops among war soldiers due to fear of uncompleted life tasks.  From the analysis of data we can conclude that in the death anxiety, hopelessness develops among war soldiers due to the fear of uncompleted life tasks. Uncompleted life task means that most of the soldiers wants to leave some sort of financial benefits to their family members (e.g. Parents/spouse/children’s). As most of the benefits available to lower cadre soldier are not enough to meet their family requirements. Hence the fear about their family member wishes create fear about life, when they are performing their jobs in war affected areas. Most of the soldiers who belongs to urban areas and those who are married are affected from death anxiety. On the other hand hopelessness is also related with psychological well-being of deployed soldiers. If soldier will be mentally, psychologically satisfied from their job nature and they are intrinsically and extrinsically motivated to perform their duties than the factor of hopelessness will be minimum. Findings of the study suggest that the research should be conduct in different cities of Pakistan.
