May 2015 prove to be year of success of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, prays Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri

In his message to the people of Pakistan and PAT workers on the advent of year 2015, PAT chief Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has prayed that may 2015 prove to be a year of 100 per cent success of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, safe return of IDPs to their homes, and peace, prosperity and progress for every segment of society. He said that real dividends of Operations Zarb-e-Azb will be reaped only when terrorism and militancy will be uprooted from the country. He asked the youth to begin year 2015 with a resolve namely ‘We will bring peace. We will save Pakistan.’

Dr Qadri said that year 2014 has passed with bloody memories of Peshawar and Model Town tragedies, adding that we would neither forget the killers nor the victims. He said that injustice breeds disappointment and extremism in the society. He asked the PAT workers to speed up their struggle against oppression and injustice and keep playing their national role at intellectual, scholarly and political levels. He said that tolerance of repression is akin to promoting and supporting it. He said that the people of Pakistan should raise their voice for their rights within the confines of the Constitution instead of facing the oppression. He said that Pakistan is our home and it is responsibility of every citizen to feel strongly about its protection, security and peace.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri further said that following the Peshawar tragedy, the nation did not place their trust in the rulers; rather they have given them time to eliminate terrorism because terrorists have now launched a war against our succeeding generations. He said that there is now a talk of national war against terrorism after the heart-rending tragedy on December 16, adding that PAT had declared this to be national war by launching 600-page Fatwa against terrorism and suicide bombing in 2008. He said that COAS Gen. Raheel Sharif deserves felicitation for taking a clear position after Peshawar tragedy and immediate steps to curb the menace of terrorism.
