The Operation Zarb-i-Azb is the most comprehensive and effective military operation against the resurgent terrorist and militant outfits deeply entrenched in Pakistan’s terror-infested tribal areas. The army has successfully dismantled the deeply-rooted organisational structure of terrorists of all strata and flushed the outlawed groups out from the area. Due to the grand operation, terrorist and militant attacks have decreased manifold resulting in a kind of relative normalcy across the country.
To make the operation a success, the government should introduce socio-economic, political and educational reforms in the long-neglected tribal areas. The civilian law enforcement agencies should also be equipped so that they can maintain the level of normalcy created by the army.
