“Pakistan has eradicated all organised terrorist structure during the last ten years, which has reduced suicide attacks by 90%. Today, there is no organised terrorist structure in Pakistan,” said Major Gen Iftikhar Babar, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations, said in a media briefing.

He said Pakistan’s state writ was only in 37% tribal areas in 2007-08, now Pakistan has writ over all the tribal areas. He said terrorist attacks dropped 42% during 2020.

We have come a long way as a nation as a society and as a military; however, we are not out of the bush yet, but we are almost there. He added, “the most important thing we stayed on the course, and we will remain on the course no matter what.”

The DG-ISPR also commented that the Islamic State (IS), also known as Deash, is not organized in Pakistan.
