Religious extremism biggest internal threat
KARACHI: President General Pervez Musharraf said on Saturday that the country's defence was being strengthened through an armed forces development plan.

"This is part of the government's national defence policy to see that the Army, Navy and Air Force become much stronger and far more capable to thwart any design against the country," he said while addressing officers from the three services at the Corps Auditorium here on Saturday.

The president noted that international and regional environment demanded the highest level of vigilance and military preparedness and that the country was fully aware of these imperatives.

"Pakistan has no aggressive designs against anyone. We seek peace with all, but a peace with honour. Our desire for peace should not be misconstrued as a sign of weakness, it is a strategy of defensive deterrence," he said.

"We also seek peaceful resolution of all disputes with our neighbours, including that of Kashmir. We are determined to defend the territorial integrity and solidarity of our country and our desire is reflected in the capabilities of our armed forces," the president added.

While declaring religious extremism the biggest internal threat to the country, Musharraf regretted that misunderstanding and hatred were being created amongst the people in the name of Islam.

"We must discourage this (practice) to safeguard our future," the president said while expressing regrets that some of the mosques and Madrassas were being misused for this purpose and called upon the audience to be aware of conspiracies by vested interests.

The president discussed both the international and regional environment prevailing at the moment and Pakistan's important role in that context.

Referring to the economic turnaround in the country, he said that in view of the consistent policy all socio-economic indicators were extremely positive and that the future was bright.

He urged the audience to promote tolerance for the diversified views of citizens, so that we can pursue our policies and give to the country the place it deserves in the comity of nations.

Corps Commander, Lt-Gen Ahsan Azhar Hayat, COMKAR, AOC Southern Air Command, General Officers Commanding and other senior officers were present on the occasion.

I think Musharaf is right in a way. We have to follow Islam, Islam is religion of peace. We should try to be peaceful but we should also compete with the enemies of Islam without damaging Islam.
