After gruesome acts of terrorism, the government has finally started to strengthen counterterrorism policies to destroy the deep roots of terrorism. 

The implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) has also been initialised immediately. Besides, one of the more fruitful decisions of the government has been to appoint retired Lt Gen Nasser Janjua to monitor progress on the implementation of NAP. 

Besides all aforementioned suitable steps, another beneficial mission of 23 new wings of civil armed forces for internal and border security has also been decided by the rulers. 

Many rampaging militant and sectarian groups operate in Pakistan fearlessly. Even Punjab, the PM’s own province, has been targeted by extremist groups. Yet, nothing has been done to stem such active militant groups. Therefore, there is a dire need to crack down on banned militant and sectarian outfits operating in Pakistan.
