An autonomous weapon is defined as “weapon systems that, once activated, can select and engage targets without further intervention by a human operator”. This definition is a point of stress for many, since these weapons like all are bound to work according to its programing or design, and will follow it to its conclusion. There is also the issue of how easy these weapons are to create, leading to a war of ever increasing numbers.

Pakistan, alongside many other countries, supports a ban on these autonomous weapons, otherwise known as Killer Robots. When used under human surveillance these tools can be used to great effect, but once left to their programing horrible things can happen if a slight change happens after a calculation is made or there is some sort of tampering done to the Killer Robot.
Why take such unnecessary risk?
