RAWALPINDI: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting, Maryam Aurangzeb, advised PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to have his four demands approved from Sindh government, on Sunday.
Talking to media personnel, Maryam said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was working for the country, despite politics of chaos and anarchy.
"Mian Muhamamd Nawaz Sharif is providing the nation with many gifts," she said. "Despite politics of anarchy, PM Nawaz is working to serve the nation," she added.
Maryam Aurangzeb said that the increase of public parks in Pakistan was a reflection of the fact that terrorism in the country was declining. She said that PPP's Bilawal Bhutto Zardari should get his four demands approved from Sindh government.
"PM Nawaz has nothing to do with these demands," she said.
She stated that no protest could stop the government. The government would only go home in 2018, she said.
PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has warned the government that if they fail to accept his four demands, then he would announce a long march on Dec. 27.
Pakistan has long been battling foreign and local militants who have killed thousands of people including security officials in a bloody campaign across the country.
The country’s armed forces dealt a final blow to militants under the watch of General Raheel when security forces backed by the Pakistan Air Forces launched an operation in North Waziristan in 2015 to wipe out menace of terrorism, eliminating thousands of militants including senior figures of banned organizations.
Not only did the Pakistan’s armed forces save the country from the typhoon gathering along the western marches, they also took care of the rogue elements in political parties that used strong arm tactics in the urban centers to maintain their hegemony.
During the course of war against terrorism, the Pakistan’s powerful army made sure its officers and jawans were well trained to face the butchers holed up in country’s tribal belt near Afghan border.
As part of their training, Pakistan army officials receive their training in and outside the country to hone their skills.
Among them was Ukbah Malik who was trained at Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst alongside Prince William in 2007.
Major Malik is back at Royal Military Academy as an instructor nearly a decade after he graduated from the institute.
The officers returned to the academy after spending years in battle field of Waziristan to train British cadets to fight against terrorists.
“When I graduated from Sandhurst in 2007 I reported back to my battalion, the First SIndh Regiment in Waziristan. When you are in the thick of the bullets and when you see your life in danger and your troops life in danger then real leadership skill needs to come out and that’s what I think I bring back,” said he while talking to a foreign TV channel.
”The leadership skills we need to impart to the cadets, so that when they are ready, they have to go, they are ready for it”.
The officer is sharing his experience of fighting terrorism in some of Pakistan’s tribal territories.
“The background to it is because of the successful counter insurgency that Pakistan has done, not only in Waziristan but also in other areas. Pakistan’s role, as the world knows and acknowledges now, has been instrumental in countering insurgency in that region.
When asked about the importance of patterning with Pakistan, British Army’s Colonel Harty said, “Pakistan has faced real challenges and these challenges we have also grappled with throughout the years”.
“We feel that there is great learning to be had patterning with Pakistan both at the strategic level but also the more human lower level and bringing Major Ukbah into our team is in order to achieve that.
