In his opening address, Director-General ISPR Major-General Asif Ghafoor said it is our collective as well as individual duty to shield our youth against the threat of extremism.
He said operation Raddul Fasad is aimed at consolidating gains of all military operations and to bring about an enduring peace and stability.
One of its strands is to eliminate extremism from our society. He said the requirement becomes more pronounced when we see that the nature and character of the conflict has also changed with ideology of ISIS that focuses on targeting minds of our youth.
