Pakistan should immediately dispatch delegations to the important world capitals to apprise the respective governments about the ongoing indiscriminate military operation against Taliban, said Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo in a statement issued from here today. Our strong case should not be victim of default which unfortunately is the case at the moment, he added.
He said that Pakistan was not only fighting the war of its survival but also fighting for the peace and security of the world because terrorism was evil posing threat to the peace and security of the world alike.
He said that all the countries in the periphery of Pakistan were extremely concerned on the prevailing situation in the country because blowback of terrorism could threaten their security at the end of the day as well.
He maintained that the world community was favorably disposed towards Pakistan in the war on terror and was keen to help in all possible way to defeat the menace. Terrorists motivated by their misguided ideology were determined to hijack the way of the civilized world in general and indeed of the countries who were plagued with this scourge in particular.
He suggested that the delegations that the government should consider sending to the world capitals must include the representatives of the major political parties who were well versed with the issue. Its optics will serve the cause of Pakistan in the most pleasing ways, he opined.
He further said that Pakistan should raise this issue in the United Nations to express its determination to fight out terrorism in it all forms and manifestations. The world community has soft corner for Pakistan in this pursuit adding but it must be appraised of the full perspective.
He said that Chairman Bilawal Bhutto had been consistently hammering the view point that the terrorists should be fought on their turf because the policy of appeasement was both destructive and self-defeating in this case.
He added that the people had taken the sigh of relief that the government had taken the decision to face the menace head on and the Zarb-i- Azf was the vindication of the position taken by the Chairman right from the beginning.
On the question of internally Displaced Persons, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo said that the government should seek assistance of the international community adding there was no reason why the world would not come forward to help Pakistan in mitigating the human sufferings.
He said that the looking after the IDPs was equally important as a part of the military operation and the government should give priority to the humantarinian issue by meeting the immediate needs of the IDPs on war footings.
He said that now Pakistan was focused and had made up its mind to defeat the evil thoroughly and comprehensively that had threatened the peace and security of the world by any measure. Pakistan is fighting its war of survival which indeed is a war of equal importance for the world peace and especially for the security of this region.
