Terrorist organizations focus on targeting minds of youth: ISPR DG
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor said Thursday that the terrorist organizations like Daesh are targeting minds of youngsters and it is our collective duty as ‘state’ and individual duty in our respective domain to shield our youth against this threat.
Address a Seminar on “Role of Youth in Rejecting Extremism”, he said that Operation Raadul Fasaad is aimed at consolidating gains of all military operations earlier concluded in Kinetic domain and to bring about an enduring peace and stability. One of its strands is to eliminate extremism from our society. The requirement becomes more pronounced when we see that the nature and character of this conflict has also changed with ideology of ISIS which focuses on targeting minds of our youth.
Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said: “We owe our achievements in ongoing operations to the youth. Of all the sacrifices made by uniformed Pakistanis 90 percent contributions are by our youth i.e young soldiers and officers. Let us not allow their supreme sacrifice to go waste and convert our achievements into an enduring success.”
