Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad was launched by Pakistan Army earlier this month after a fresh wave of terrorism hit parts of country including major cities like Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta.

A suicide blast at shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif claimed 88 lives and left over 200 wounded and before that a suicide bomber targeted a protest outside Punjab Assembly on Mall Road claiming 14 lives.

Chief of the Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa chaired a meeting last week which decided to launch Radd-ul-Fasaad that entails deployment of Pakistan Rangers in Punjab to eliminate the ‘residue’ of terrorism left.
