    INDIA BIGGEST THREAT TO PAK SECURITY: BAJWA

    Berlin—Director General Inter Services Public Relations Lt-Gen Asim Bajwa on Wednesday regretted the international community had not done enough for Pakistan and left Pakistan alone to fight terrorists.

    In an interview with Deutsche Welle Gen Bajwa said “Pakistan fought the war for the entire world in that region but the world left her alone to face them.”

    Gen Bajwa said the narrative that Pakistan had not done enough to fight terrorism was “unfair” as it did not recognise Pakistan’s contributions to the war against terror.

    “I would say that the international community has not done enough for us,” the military’s spokesperson added. The DG ISPR went on to say the criticism from the west that the Pakistan Army is not “doing enough” against militants is “both regretful and unjustified.”

    He said forces launched operation in North Waziristan and then in Khyber Agency. At the same time, an innovation was created in which we have so far carried out over 18,000 intelligence based operations.

    We have traced out facilitators of terrorists who were hiding in cities. More than 240 terrorists were killed in these operations. So that gives you an idea how deeply they were entrenched.

    Bajwa clarified that Operation Zarb-e-Azb is targeting all militants, including the Haqqani network. “The military has no preferences. We are targeting terrorists from all groups,” he said in the interview with the German broadcaster.

    Pakistan has played an unparalleled role against the Al Qaeda and all other terrorists that morphed over time, be it after Russian aggression in Afghanistan or the post-9/11 scenario.

    He said, I would like to say through your channel that it is injustice against Pakistan by the global community and that they did not do enough for Pakistan. They presented a flawed narrative, and they should recognise Pakistan’s perspective and morally support Pakistan.

    “The military crackdown is worthy of all the efforts. We have eliminated the terrorists from the area, and the people are very pleased with our efforts,” the DG maintained.

    During the interview, Asim Bajwa also spoke about Pakistan’s ties with India and said that his country’s defence mechanism was ‘India-specific’. This, he said, was due to the fact that India posed the biggest threat to Pakistan’s security.

    Asim Bajwa also said that developments were going on to engage India, however, the long-standing issue of Kashmir was the cause of tension between both nuclear armed nations of the sub-continent.

    The DG ISPR said the killing of former Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour in an American drone strike in May was “regrettable” as it has upset the Afghan reconciliation process. “[Mansour] entered into Pakistan from another state and then he was traced and attacked. He was a part of the reconciliation process and was required to play his role for peace.”

    “Pakistan was not informed despite being an ally. This is the issue Pakistan has been protesting,” he added. Bajwa also dismissed claims of an increasingly visible gap between the civilian government and the army, saying, “democracy has been strengthening in Pakistan and it has been receiving all possible support from the military.”

    “Consultations are made on all major issues of national security and whenever called, the army supports the civilian government on various issues, ranging from natural disasters to development works,” he said.

    To a question he said, a soldier in a warzone cannot discriminate among the terrorists and who belongs to which group. There were terrorists from the Haqqani Network, ETIM, IMU, Al Qaeda and TTP, there were Pakistanis and Afghans and other nationals, and we fought against all of them.

    “And at the time the global community, including the United States, had admitted that the operation was being carried out across the board and effectively,” General said.

    To another question he said, Afghanistan is a brotherly country of Pakistan. Currently the two countries have some issues over exchange of fire at Torkham on the issue of installation of gates on the border, but there is dialogue happening. Border management is essential for both countries, without which there cannot be peace neither in Afghanistan nor in Pakistan, the DG said.

    You should start preparing for this threat instead of crying about it on international media.

    Shouldn't the PA be targeting the LeT and JeM too? Snakes can never be trusted. They have this habit of biting the hand that feeds them as had happened when dozens of their cadres joined the TTP and AQ to fight the PA.

    And what your PM taught your nation in his election campaign when he was saying "Why are you writing a love letter to Pak, hit them with a nuke" ?

    Your PM entire election campaign was based on Pak. You guys need to grow up now.
