In Pakistan Polio vaccination teams have come under attack on several occasions by the Islamic groups. These groups consider Polio vaccination to be against Islam as men turn sterile.

In the month of June 2021, Pakistan had suspended the Polio vaccination programme indefinitely over attacks on health workers. Two policemen were gunned down in Khyber Paktunkhwa while two Polio workers were shot dead.

Reports said in 2021 that Dilawar Khan was on his way to escort the Polio vaccination team on his motorcycle when gunmen attacked him. Pakistan radical terrorists and fundamentalists often target polio vaccination drives as they believe it is a Western conspiracy to sterilise their children.
