According to ISPR, price paid in fight against terrorism by Army / FC since 2001 till to date, Shaheed – 3109 and Wounded – 9681. The terrorism in FATA, Balochistan and KPK will likely to continue due to U.S. forces presence in the region.

Anyhow, there is a need to show solidarity against TTP and foreign sponsored elements those are determent to impose their agenda by force. All political leaders should come out and condemn the anti-Pakistan elements. Pakistani religious leaders should also give statements against TTP since they are foreign being sponsored and playing the foreign hands for giving live losses to the peaceful and innocent citizens.
