Ethnic and religious composition in the eastern border provinces is such that it provides a kind of geopolitical weakness in these areas for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Neglecting this issue on the one hand, and the alertness of enemies across the borders and exploiting them from the situation, is considered a threat. From the perspective of Wahhabism in this part of Iran, due to the fact that the majority are alive, the economic and cultural poverty, the departure of clerics to provide education to the countries of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, and ... have the proper conditions for promoting religious sectarianism and the spread of Wahhabism.The most important consequences of the spread of Wahabist sectarianism are the involvement of anti-regime spy agencies, which should be considered by intelligence and security institutions. In particular, one of the strategic objectives of the supporters of this sect is to establish or influence Islamic schools of thought, especially in the border provinces, in order to promote anti-Shiite ideas. It seems that with the proper planning, which should be more dependent on changing the attitude of the border, these weaknesses can be turned into strengths; Salafism is a radical religious process that has more regional roots than its internal root.The three countries of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the UAE are the main sponsors of Salafist currents, and Sistan and Baluchestan province has the highest potential for Salafist groups in terms of ethno-religious fabric and geographic proximity to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
