PM chairs federal cabinet meeting
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif says the government is committed to implement National Action Plan in its essence.
Speaking in Radio Pakistan’s Nuqta-e Nazar program, MNA Rana Muhammad Afzal Khan said: “Pakistani nation is united against the terrorism and all political parties are aligned with government in this regard. Pakistan Army has launched operation Zarb-e-Azb to eliminate terrorism from the country. In result of this operation, the law and order situation of the country has been improved. Thousands of terrorists have been killed and arrested under this operation so far. Our security forces have cleared around ninety percent area of the North Waziristan and Khyber agencies. Only few terrorists are left behind who are also operating from outside the country and hopefully they will be eliminated soon by the valiant efforts of our forces. Terrorists not belong to any religion they are just killers of humanity. India is involved in creating problems in Pakistan and it is sponsoring and backing the terrorists in our country. The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is directly related with the internal security of Pakistan. India is creating security problems in Pakistan to stop CEPC but it will fail in its nefarious objectives.”
Senator Dr. Ghous Muhammad Khan Niazi said: “The biggest problem of our country is terrorism and we have suffered huge damages due to this menace. India wants to destabilize Pakistan by promoting terrorism. It also desires to stop the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) but its dreams will not become true. Our forces are engaged against militants with great bravery and they are continuously defeating terrorists in different areas of the country. The killing of Interior Minister, Punjab is quite unfortunate and we are in deep grief over the demise of Shujah Khanzada. Our military and civil leadership are on same page against terrorism and the terrorism will be finished from the country in coming years. After the improvement in law and order situation of the country, new situation will bring economic prosperity in the country.”
Defence analyst Lt. General (R) Amjad Shoaib said: “We made National Action Plan (NAP) to curb the terrorist after the brutal attack on Army Public School Peshawar. Today, the Prime Minister has chaired a meeting of Federal Cabinet in Islamabad and stressed to expedite the implementation process of NAP, which is a good step. Government should take strict action against terrorists and should clutch the facilitators of terrorism because the abettors of terrorists are moving freely in the cities. In incident of the killing of Shujah Khanzada, the facilitators of suicide bombers are being arrested from the different cities of the country, which shows that terrorists have hidden support from the cities. Pakistan Army got historic success in war against India of 1965 because of our best war strategy. Pakistan Army and Air Force retaliated on Indian aggression in a befitting manner in the said war.”
Defence analyst Air Marshal (R) Ayaz Khan said: “Pakistan Air Force had defeated Indian Air Force in the war of 1965. Pakistan Air Force attacked on the hideouts of Indian forces with good strategy under the leadership of Air Marshal Noor Khan. MM. Alim was a friend of mine and he was a famous pilot. He destroyed five Indian aircrafts in one minute. In the war of 1965 we had secured historic successes in both ground and air fronts. India faced huge losses when it was attacked on Sargodha Airbase. All departments had delivered good performance in this war and it was only become possible due to a vigilant coordination among all departments.”
Defence analyst Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Jamshed Ayaz said: It is surprising and misconceived idea to rake up the old wounds of 1965’s war after the lapse of 50 years. Pakistan army got unprecedented achievements during the war and gave vital blows to the adversary. Maj. Aziz Bhatti, a brave soldier and son of the soil, faced the enemy with immense courage and bravery in the war. India was a big country with huge resources but our forces fought with valor and defeated it, while getting a decisive victory. By writing books and by making merely movies no one can alter the facts and history.
