Army will fight terrorists, society should fight extremism, says COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on May 19 made a subtle distinction between terrorism and extremism, saying the military could only defeat terrorists but extremism is something civil society is better equipped to deal with, reports Dawn. He was speaking at a seminar in Islamabad, titled "Role of Youth in Rejecting Extremism", attended by students, Army personnel as well as dignitaries from the world of academia. General Bajwa said extremism is the foremost factor driving terrorism, adding that though the former is a term "relative to our perception of what is normal," it has a lot to do with the environment in which people live. "From that perspective," he added, "We must admit that Pakistani youth is being exploited due to the poor governance [of the country] and lack of justice in society."
