While Army fights terrorists, society needs to fight terrorism: COAS

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday said that the armed forces fought the menace of terrorism valiantly and set an example for the world in cleansing the barbarians from their potholes.

The list has been forwarded by the agency to anti-terrorism wing.

The development has come in around five days after Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had directed the federal agency to detain the people who were ranting against the army on social media.

He further said the Hindutva extremism of the RSS and their GaoRakshaks, deprivation of Palestinians, the burning and desecration of mosques or gurdwaras in western capitals, the rise of hyper nationalists and the monster of racism, were all manifestations of extremism.

"As we transit gradually from major operations against terrorism to more intricate, targeted operations against residual threat, under the ambit of Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, we must also find ways to ensure that the causes behind terrorism are addressed and National Action Plan is actualised".

The army chief said both "state and non-state" elements are "waging the biggest and most sustained hybrid war against Pakistan", trying to connect to the country's disillusioned youth via smartphone technology and the internet.

The army chief said it is unfair and unsafe to associate extremism with Islam.

He said the Indian leadership has made no secret of its involvement in proxy struggle in the erstwhile East Pakistan (which later became Bangladesh) and now in Balochistan. "Therefore, we will only have a clear concept of extremism if we have a clear concept of our own identity and values".

"We are cognizant of these threats and are actively countering them with the support of the whole nation".

"Our homes, educational institutions and media houses are first in the line of defence against extremism in the society", Gen Bajwa said.

Considering how they were faced with relegation for some of the season, Leicester would be chuffed with eighth spot. In fact, the 2015/16 champions have not managed to keep a clean sheet against Tottenham Hotspur in almost 20 years.

The army chief said that despite the incessant propaganda, the fact was that Pakistan has rejected terrorism which speaks of the robustness of our social and religious values.

General Bajwa mentioned that, Army is handling many issues including Reko Diq Case, Indus Water Treaty Case, Kulbhushan Jadhav Case along with all the operations against terrorism in the country.

"Raddul Fasaad is aimed at consolidating gains of all military operations earlier concluded in the kinetic domain and to bring about an enduring peace and stability", the ISPR DG said. He added that one of its objective is to eliminate extremism from our society.

"We owe our achievements in ongoing operations to the youth".

According to Ghafoor, the seminar was focusing on an analysis of "the phenomenon of extremism".
