RAWALPINDI: 

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Tuesday said the terrorist attack on innocent students in Peshawar showed that the terrorists were not only enemies of Pakistan but enemies of the humanity too.

“This ghastly act of cowardice of killing innocents clearly indicates they are not only enemies of Pakistan but enemies of humanity,” he said. According to the army’s media wing, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), General Raheel also stated that “We are extremely saddened, but our resolve has taken new height,” and added “We will continue to go after the inhuman beasts, their facilitators till their final elimination.”

The army chief further said they [terrorists] had hit at the heart of the great nation, but they could not in any way diminish its will. He also said that based on actionable intelligence, several options had been put into action, including 10 air strikes in Khyber Agency.

    Who made a growing child into a terrorist. For long Pakistan along with foreign support have been destroyed the future and lives of billions of youngs; first training and equipped them, have been using them as buffer forces and non state actors for long at various fronts for own agenda and neighboring countries. Then after the failure of their agenda the strategic depth etc. these traditional forces have been started blaming and eliminating through various propaganda and conflicts.

    How long will these allegations and counter allegations go on? Is there an end to this saga of attack and counter-attacks? It seems definitely not as long as Pakistan takes dictation from Washington. It is time that Pakistan Government looks after the interest of the country and not put American interest on top. Most importantly, the Army should let civilian government solve this matter.
