Zarb-e-Azb Is Still On..!!!
Back in June, Pakistan Armed forces in total cohesion with state adversaries opted to initiate Operation Zarb-e-Azb in North Waziristan, which has been the main hub of terrorists. Country wide terrorist’s activities were being planned and directed by the terrorists residing in NWA. This whole situation led to various speculations about civil-military seriousness in wiping terrorism out. This also divided the society on various fronts. Politicians, civil society members and people from every walk of life started possessing fragmented feelings.
With the initiation of Zarb-e-Azb, where Armed forces were busy in targeting terrorists, reservations were too surfacing. Reservations including terrorists fled away, IDPs treated brutally, terrorists crossing Afghan border, making US suspicious about terrorists, bifurcation between good and bad Taliban started surfacing. Even then, the dust wasn’t settled, political turmoil started subverting masses from a national goal to somewhat personal ambitions. This all actually moved the transmission of information on Zarb-e-Azb at back foot.
Zarb-e-Azb did miss the national back but it is still in progress. After Miranshah and Mir Ali, Ariel and ground strikes are going on. Just recently, military attacked militant hideouts and killed almost 48 militants. Vehicles and motorcycles are recovered upon which these activities were being planned. Before that, we have seen horrified amount of arms and ammunitions, cash in the form of foreign currency, IED’s and anti-state literature, recovered in Miranshah and MirAli.
Militants had proper set up which they used to train people, punish the one who says NO, ruling people with full power. People who moved from NWA did not come out of the usual treatment they were receiving living in NWA but it was their place, they possessed it and they suffered. IDPs movement was another crucial situation. It was criticized, pin pointed, undermined and called fraudulent. Various stories kept coming making a deliberate effort to bring the essence down.
IDPs are still there, Zarb-e-Azb is till happening. Our selfless soldiers are still fighting, people are still managing to survive the scorching sunlight but we did not learn a lesson. Despite of keeping the flag high for an Operation which endures our future, we are onto something that is bringing us defamation and humor. I believe that real revolution is still to come, it will take time but it is not the time right now. The real revolution will come when our soil will be wipe out of terrorism, we will smell fragrances not the blood and when people will be free to think. And this makes me deduces that whatever is happening in Pakistan to culminate terrorism is the start, soon we will be free. Support the real national cause please!
