Trib­ute to General Ra­heel Sharif

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

ARSALAN SHAHZAD General Ra­heel Sharif is the in­cum­bent Chief of Army Staff of the Pak­istan Army. He is con­sid­ered as one of the best and brave Gen­er­als in the world, be­cause of his wide ap­proach to tackle en­e­mies in and out of coun­try. His var­i­ous op­er­a­tions to sta­bi­lize Pak­istan and keep it clean from ter­ror­ism, are out­stand­ing and ad­mirable.

He de­cided to launch the op­er­a­tion (Zarb-e-Azb) on 15 June 2014, against var­i­ous mil­i­tant groups, in­clud­ing the Tahreek-eTal­iban Pak­istan (TTP), Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, alQaeda and the Haqqani net­work and now Pak­istan Army has taken over the op­er­a­tion against the mem­bers of the ter­ror or­ga­ni­za­tions like Cho­too gang which was in­volved in ter­ror­ism in some part of Punjab and de­stroyed the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in our coun­try. He has time and again ex­pressed his de­ter­mi­na­tion to en­sure a ter­ror-free Pak­istan. He paid rich tributes to the courage and sac­ri­fices of our valiant troops to de­fend our beloved coun­try and the na­tion.

General Ra­heel Sharif is also fight­ing the curse of cor­rup­tion and dis­missed 11 mil­i­tary of­fi­cers found in­volved in cor­rup­tion. The whole na­tion stands be­hind General Ra­heel in his strug­gle to elim­i­nate cor­rup­tion, ter­ror­ism and ex­trem­ism from the coun­try. The rea­sons for Ra­heel Sharif’s pop­u­lar­ity are not dif­fi­cult to com­pre­hend in times of ram­pant ter­ror­ism, in­se­cu­rity, cor­rup­tion and a general dis­ap­point­ment with pol­i­tics. —Karachi
