Pakistan Committed To End Terrorism From The Country

Updated on December 27, 2014

War Against Terrorism

After 9/11 attack, Pakistan became ally with America to end terrorism from the world. Pakistan was with Americans when they attacked Afghanistan which made Afghan Talibans to consider Pakistanis their enemy. So they counter attacked and started blasting in tribal areas. The area of Khyber Pakhtunkha and FATA was consistently under threat of suicide bombing. In addition to that many Afghan people were already residing in Pakistan which was another threat. So it became clear to Pakistanis that they took wrong step by pushing themselves in war against terrorism because it gave loss more than profit.

Following the loss of lives Pakistan bore in a decade 2001-10, government of Pakistan decided to start an operation against terrorists under the command of General Ishfaq Pervaiz Kiyani. However due to some unknown reasons, Kiyani continued to delay the operation until he retired. When General Raheel Sharif was appointed as army chief, he emphasized the government to counter attack the terrorists. So an operation with name of Zarb-e-Azb was started.

Zarb-e-Azb is derived from two arabic words; Zarb means cut of weapon while Azb is the sword used by Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in war of Badr and Uhad. Operation was started in June 2014 and Pak troops first attack Waziristan, the strong head of terrorists. Major terrorist organisations were Tehreek Taliban Pakistan, Lashkar Jhungvi, Jandullah, Alqaeda and Haqqani Network.

Operation Initiated

Inter Services Public Relation (ISPR) officially gave the statement before starting Zarb e Azb:

"Using North Waziristan as a base, these terrorists had waged a war against the state of Pakistan and had been disrupting our national life in all its dimensions, stunting our economic growth and causing enormous loss of life and property. They had also paralyzed life within the agency and had perpetually terrorized the entire peace loving and patriotic local population."

Pak arm forces and air forces attacked at Waziristan collectively. The main technique used was that first air forces hit the spot and then arm forces attack. A problem related to internally displaced people (IDPs) arose who moved to Bannu from Waziristan. Totally population of IDPs was about one million. Government accommodated them in temporary shelters and continued its operation.

Reaction To Operation

Terrorists remain silent for five months and didn't gave major bounce back to operation. However several threats were received by intelligence agencies to army. On December 16, terrorists attack an army school and killed more than one forty students more of which were relatives to army men. Tehreek Taliban Pakistan accepted the responsibility of attack and warned to do the same type of attacks in educational institutes of Pakistan.

Army chief General Raheel Sharif upon seeing the incident, requested the government to move ban from hanging of terrorists and thus government hanged four terrorists in the first day. Following that more more terrorists were ordered to be hanged. Due to high security risks, all the educational institutions were closed.

Zarb-e-Azb is continued till now. It is clear now that Pakistan has decided to free itself from all terrorist activities.
