Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, president of MQI, has said that the rulers are quite perturbed due to Operation Zarb-e-Azb launched by Pakistan military and peace initiative started by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri. He said that discriminatory and class-based system of education is giving birth to terrorism and extremism in the country, adding that it is responsible for producing the rulers and the ruled with a huge and unbridgeable gulf between them. He said that we pay homage to all those martyrs who rendered the sacrifice of their lives in the Operation Zarb-e-Azb. Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri expressed these views while addressing the inaugural ceremony of Zarb-e-Amn signature drive launched countrywide by the PAT Youth Wing on Feb 21 here in Lahore. He said that incidents of terrorism did decrease and law and order situation improved in the country as a result of Operation Zarb-e-Azb but added in the same breath that guns and tanks are not enough to eliminate the ideology of radicalism and terrorism. He said that uniform system of education, provision of education and health to people coupled with socio-economic justice and employment opportunities was the key to win this battle of hearts and minds. He said that it is in this context that Zarb-e-Amn and Zarb-e-Ilm are so critical in this long-drawn out war of ideologies.
