The Lack of Narrative against Terrorism

Speaking with Qadeer Tanoli of Express Tribune, Khalid Muhammad, our Director General, explained how the failure of the government to craft a narrative made winning hearts and minds impossible after the military operation. He also went into detail explain what parts are a requirement for a strong narrative.

“He said the anti-terror narrative was supposed to be based on three main points – religious perception, Pakistani culture and community ownership. “Taking the religious scholars on board on this issue and requesting them to prepare religious perspective against terrorism should be at the top of the strategy to tackle terrorism in the country,” the counter-terrorism expert said.”
