ISLAMABAD:(APS)Feb 17,2017-Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has stated that “in the pursuit of peace and prosperity, every State in history has faced opposition from those who have wished to revert them to primitive and barbaric roots. Pakistan has been fighting a war on its identity since its inception. For the past many years, we have been fighting the enemies from within, and those abroad. We have faced dark days in our history. However, we have always come through with a resilience that has been an inspiration for the world. It is time for us to unite and fight against the radicals, wherever they may be, inside or coming from out side and I direct and authorise my armed forces and law enforcement agencies to eliminate the enemy where ever they are with the full force of the state. It is an obligation on us towards future generations and others facing oppression . We must hold firm, but reject fear and renounce this depravity wherever we see it with a moral rebuke we reserve only for the most heinous. My administration will do its part in ensuring defeat to those who question our humanity, and the rights and liberties of our fellow countrymen. This war will end, and it will conclude with the victory of our people, including our positive values that bind us”, stated the PM while chairing a meeting at Sehwan in wake of yesterday’s terrorist attack on the Shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar.
