MUNICH : PAKISTAN'S  Chief of Army Staff  [COAS} Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said that no  organization militant camps existed on our soil.

The army chief stated this while addressing the Munich Security Conference in Germany last Saturday.

During his address, COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa threw light on Pakistan's stance on the ongoing war against terrorism.

''Jihad can only be sanctioned by a state authority and nobody else.

However, there is no  denying the fact  that the  powerful concept  of Jihad can be easily misused for propagating extremism and terrorism particularly as many Muslims in the world over-

Are feeling not only as alienated but disowned and targeted and devoid of all positive expression.

Same is true for the Caliphate, which is more of a nostalgic response, rather than the actual possibility for most Muslims.

Ladies and Gentlemen, in Pakistan, the notion of Caliphate has not found any traction, but Jihad has definitely been used to radicalize a large tract of population.

However, the phenomenon is not a recent creation that started after 9/11.

The Frankenstein was actually created by the  liberal free world with a willing, but myopic cooperation from my side after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979.''......................
