The Pakistan Armed Forces (Urdu: پاکستان مُسَلّح افواج‎, Pākistān Musāllah Afwāj) are the military forces of Pakistan. They are the sixth largest in the world in terms of active military personnel and the largest among Muslim countries. The armed forces comprise four main service branches – Army, Navy, Air Force and paramilitary forces and the Strategic Plans Division Force. Chain of command of the military is organised under the Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (JCSC) alongside chiefs of staff of the army, navy, and air force.[8] All of the branches work together during operations and joint missions under the Joint Staff Headquarters (JS HQ).

Do Bangladeshi special forces get training from SSG? After the holey artisan incident I think we must have a well trained force ready to counter just terror attacks. 

SSG is probably the best in the region, Indian NSG dont have much combat experience as SSG.

1. Bangladesh Army sent small number of officers to train in Pakistan at SSG facilities.

2. Bangladesh is the most successful in combatting terrorism in the region so far. CTU forces exist with major city and national agencies. They are trained by FBI and also in Jordan.

3. Whether SSG is the best is debatable. They are elite so they're supposed to be the best of their forces.

Holey Artisan, the previous Sylhet issue and subsequent operations have highlighted the quality of BD special forces. Neither India nor Pkaistan with all their elite forces have been able to conduct operations with such elegance and sophistication as we did. In my view given the wide ranging tribute and respect paid to Bangladeshi special forces by regional commanders for their successful completion of missions, Bangladeshi special forces are probably the best. Both Indian and Pakistani forces failed to conduct missions with the rate that our forces have done.

Well to be fair, Bangladesh hasn't faced the kind of large scale terror attacks that Pakistan and India have faced which is a good thing.

The 2008 Mumbai attacks shook India to its core.

The government did a commendable job of crushing terror networks in BD largely hampering their capabilities to mount attacks.

That is exactly the reason Pakistani and Indian forces should have been better at dealing with this situation ! Despite decades of engagement and experience they failed to respond adequately.

One could argue the Pakistanis got themselves into the mess knowingly. Indians seem to think ISI empowers terror groups, maybe they do. Maybe they did and it back fired. 

In any case, the current situation in Pakistan is getting better which is good for the region as a whole.

Terror in Pakistan is complex issue so I will refrain from making my judgments. All intel organizations at any point of time or another empower or have empowered outfits that has been called as terror outfits by some country or another.

 

Its premature to judge whether it is good for the region. If Pakistan learned something then one could consider a successful learning curve finished by them. So far behavior change has not materialized.
