SIBI: Peace among tribes in Sibi is because of mutual unity. We all have to work to make Balochistan modern province and for its progress and prosperity. No sacrifice would be left for making Balochistan peaceful and stable and strong Pakistan. Operation in North Waziristan would be successful Owing to Nation’s Dua.
These views were expressed by Commander Southern Command Lt General Nasser Khan Janjua while addressing grand jirga at Headquarter Sibi Scouts here Wednesday.
Major General Samrez Salik, Major General Majid Ehsan, Brigadier Khalid Saleem, Brig Hammad Ahmed Dogar, Former caretaker Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Ghaus Bakhsh Barozai, provincial minister Sardar Sarfraz Domki, President PPP Balochistan Muhammad Sadiq Umrani, Commissioner Sibi Sher Khan Bazai and others were also present.
General Nasser Janjua said defence of the country is our topmost duty. Terrorists and law violators would be dealt with iron hands. Balochistan sprawls over a vast area and reaching every place in time is not possible but difficult. Pak Army, FC and other institutions are national security institutions who come to the expectations of people’s desire and hopes. Contact with people in Balochistan and elsewhere in the country is our duty. Country is confronted with difficult situation. We need to be untied more than the past and face these situation with courage. Security of Pakistan we do with our blood.
Referring to North Waziristan he said after 9/11 Pakistan is in state of war. We are fighting since long. After elections elected leadership with the cooperation of Army held talks with terrorists involved in terrorists activities only for people’s interest so that our brethren could be brought to national mainstream through talks in peaceful atmosphere. Pak Army and security forces did not take any step which shows we do not support talks. Everyone including Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif tried best for success of dialogues. On one hand talks were being held while attacks were also made on people and security forces on the other. Mosque, church no one was where incidents of terrorism were not held.
He said when writ of the state was challenged Pak Army was left with no option but to conduct an operation in North Waziristan. Decision of operation was not taken on any one’s say or dictation. It is wrong to say we started operation at the behest of America.
Had we announced operation all terrorists would have left their areas and we would not have any success. We have taken decision after great thought. IN first phase we started operation in selective areas so that peaceful people shift to secure areas. Operation Zarb e Azb would continue till elimination of terrorism and with the dua of nation we would be successful. At the end of operation rehabilitation of people is also out duty.
He said majority of people of Balochistan are patriots who love their motherland. A few by sitting outside were conspiring to deteriorate situation in Balochistan. Law and order situation has greatly improved due to the efforts of political government. Recovery of mutilated dead bodies has stopped.
Local bodies polls were held in a peaceful atmosphere which is a positive step. Time is not far away when exemplary peace of Balochistan would be resorted. We see ray of hope in this regard Commander added.
