"While ev­ery ef­fort would con­tinue to­wards safe­guard­ing the rights of the cit­i­zens, we will not fal­ter in ful­fill­ing our com­mit­ment to­wards en­sur­ing se­cu­rity of the mother­land and to check those el­e­ments who bring bad name to the coun­try in one way or the other," Nisar said. He said that con­trary to the pro­pa­ganda of de­trac­tors and panic ped­dlers, the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion has wit­nessed marked im­prove­ment as a re­sult of tire­less ef­forts by law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties.
