A sense of ethnicity is logic of cultural group identity within a particular community. A complex interaction of ethnic, cultural, and historical features helps people set themselves apart from the other groups. There are no states on the earth that are racially diverse. Pakistan is not an exception in this regard. Pakistan is unrivaled in its ethnic, linguistic, and geographic diversity. Conflicts develop when ethnic identity runs afoul of socioeconomic injustice. Ethnic conflicts significantly impact national integration, the bond, and solidarity among people of all castes, creeds, religions, and genders. It is a sense of brotherhood, solidarity, and social coherence within the nation's society and communities. The current study focuses on the idea of ethnicity in Pakistan, and some of the factors include religion, language, caste, territory, and national integration. Unfortunately, ethnic conflict exists in every region of Pakistan. According to the report, to reduce interethnic tensions, each ethnic community should receive a fair share of political power and economic resources.
