Khawaja M. Asif

Minister of Defence

Dialogue was not honoured! Frustrated through attacks on innocents Pakistanis and national assets, govt finally announces operation Zarb-e-Azb.


Sherry Rehman

President, Jinnah Institute

Brave #Pakistan, brace for impact. PM please take leadership; call all civilian agencies + provincial governments in for coordinated action. #ZarbEAzb


Afrasiab Khattak

Awami National Party (ANP)

The govt should take at least Parliament into confidence about situation in NWA. Where are the Interior & SAFRON ministers? Is there any plan?


Bilawal Bhutto Zardari

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)

Dama dam must qalandar #ZarbEAzb


Asim Bajwa


Zarb-e-Azb: Surrender points established for those who choose to quit violence & give up arms. Aerial surveillance by own platforms continues.


Fauzia Kasuri

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)

I wish success to our Army as they go after murderers and killers of innocent citizens. No place in Pakistan for terrorists.


Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri

Minhaj ul Quran International

Every citizen is dutybound to support armed forces according to Islamic law.
#Pakistan #ZarbEAzb


Munawar Saeed Bhatti

Former Ambassador

Zarb-e-Azb is war for Pakistan’s survival, soul and spirit. Stand with armed forces. Postpone protests and marches. #NWA #terror


Babar Sattar


With #ZarbEAzb finally underway can spoilers please hold their peace? Time to stand behind our troops & with our government/state unequivocally.


Ayaz Amir


Military operation will be meaningless if civilians don’t do their job of policing, law & order, crack-down of #LEJ & civil admin.#ZarbEAzb


Hamid Mir


If operation in NWA is need of the time then there should be a Swat-like targeted ground operation to minimize civilian causalities.


Umar Cheema


May #ZarbeAzb be the final & fateful op. May it herald a new era of peace. Don’t forget the soldiers who’re there to help answer our prayers.


Fahd Husain

Anchor, Express News

The defining hour shall Inshallah become our finest hour #ZarbEAzb


Cyril Almeida

Columnist, Dawn

Things Zarb-e-Azb has taught me so far. 1. War excites people, like really. 2. Media is full of liberal fascists who don’t know their swords.


Raza Rumi


Sleeper cells in the Punjab, Karachi & elsewhere need to be neutralized simultaneously. Also think beyond. Get a plan together dear government.


Ali Dayan Hasan

Human Rights Activist

High time @PMNawazSharif showed leadership & took political ownership of anti-Taliban operation. Address nation, Parliament. #Pakistan


Marvi Sirmed


Yes to Mil Op, no to proxies. #ZarbEAzb The nation stands united to support our civil and military leadership to decimate terrorists. #LetsDoIt


Sharmeen Obaid


A thought for those 30,000 fathers who sent their sons off to war today, also for those children who sent their fathers off. #ZarbEAzb #Pakistan
