PTI swears to oppose the operation Azm-e-Istehkam

Details indicate that to address “Operation Azm-e-Istehkam” in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the PTI called a high-level conference in Islamabad. Attendees at the meeting included Asad Qaiser, Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur, Barrister Gohar Ali Khan of the PTI, and other prominent figures.

All members of the PTI, according to leader Iqbal Afridi, are against the operation. According to him, the decision was made to present the issue to Jirga.

“Whether the operation is carried out or not will be decided by this Jirga,” Iqbal Afridi continued.

The party members were briefed on operations against terrorism in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by Ali Amin Gandapur, according to the reported sources.

By declaring that they would not allow any operation in the province, the participants voiced their opposition to the operation.

Recall that the Awami National Party (ANP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) had also opposed the Azm-e-Istehkam earlier in the day.

Azm-e-Istehkam, the recently announced counterterrorism operation, has been dubbed a “destabilising initiative” that will further weaken Pakistan by JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday.

This is not Operation Azm-e-Istehkam, but rather Operation “Adm-e-Istehkam,” the senior lawmaker stated during a press conference held here. He feels that this will further undermine Pakistan.

All citizens share the same national identity, and Fazlur Rehman emphasised this by saying, “Our history is about fighting against slavery.” Was it our goal to make Pakistan into a slave country?

ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan separately expressed his party’s scepticism and worries regarding the military action in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in a statement.

According to Asfandyar Wali Khan, the ANP has made more sacrifices than anybody else in the war against terror, yet their worries prevent them from supporting the operation. Prior to initiating any operation, he underlined that a national action plan should be put into place.

Following a meeting presided over by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the Central Apex Committee of the National Action Plan made its decision, according to the PTI.

“The Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement following the meeting, symbolising the national resolve to eradicate extremism and terrorism from the country. The prime minister approved a reinvigorated and re-energised national counterterrorism campaign through the launching of Operation Azm-e-Istehkam, with the consensus of all stakeholders including the provinces, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.”
