Doubts were raised over Lahore hosting the final when a wave of new terrorist attacks hit Pakistan last month. A handful of terrorists cannot defeat the courage of committed and proud people of Pakistan. We are committed to fail every despicable plan of our enemies. Nation fights back terrorism and Pakistan’s days of isolation are over and now it has become stronger, safer and more stable.
The zeal of cricket crazy nation vanished all the terror fears up into smoke as people from all over the country flooded Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium to show their resolve against the terrorists and their enthusiasm for the sport Pakistan is famous for. People of all ages showed love with the country on return of international cricket in the homeland.
Strict and full proof security was provided to the two domestic teams which will also include foreign cricketers. Over 10,000 security personnel, including army men provided exceptional protection for the final of the Pakistan Super League.
It is suffice to say security situation in country has greatly improved over the past few years and this recent bout of violence was a temporary blip. Besides that Operation Radd ul Fassad under the command of Pakistan Military also continues alongside in different parts of the country with full force to apprehend terrorists and their facilitators who promote terrorism activities in country. We as a whole nation are determined to pull up the menace of terrorism from our peaceful land and will make it prosperous again.
Terrorism defeated, Pakistan won!
After the recent spate of lethal terrorist attacks across country Pakistan Army has launched operation “Raad ul Fassad” with a hope and aim to uproot terrorism from country. Raad ul Fassad is basically an Arabic term which literally means “elimination of violence.” In this operation, Pakistan armed forces, rangers along with Law Enforcement Agencies will actively participate to eliminate the menace of terrorism from country.
The past few weeks have traumatized the entire nation as the resurgence of extremist activities alarmed us about the revival of terrorist networks in Pakistan. Although we are not losing the fight against the terrorism but it is also a fact that we are not even successive in culminating the terrorist network as well. The government of Pakistan must also ensure steps to implement National Action Plan (NAP) to eliminate terrorism from society.
This decision was taken in wake of resurgence of militant attacks in Pakistan. There was a series of terrorist assaults in past two weeks killing and injuring a huge number of people. The emergence of militant groups like Daesh and JuA along with their allies can be a major blow to Pakistan. Thus, this operation was need of hour to eradicate and restrict militants from carrying out such devastating assaults.
Previously, after the fatal attack of APS Peshawar Pakistan military executed operation Zarb e Azb with full momentum and the positive outcomes of that operation were quite visible. The nation believes in the strength of our valiant forces and we also hope that our forces will achieve the ends by eradicating the discord from the land of peace. Pakistan army has support of people against all the odds and nation stands with them no matter what.
May God Almighty assist the armed forces of Pakistan in their mission and protect Pakistan.
