After an attack on a public army school in 2014 that killed 149 people, including at least 132 children, a national consensus has emerged to crack down on terrorists through a concerted national effort in Pakistan. In this context, a 20-point NAP to combat terrorism and extremism has been drawn up by the Ministry of the Interior. The NAP had a list of details for the country’s counter-terrorism campaign – those which Sharif said were ignored by Imran Khan.

Terrorists carried out 294 attacks, killing 388 people and injuring 606 in 2021, ANI reported citing a report by the Pakistan Institute for Conflict and Security Studies (PICSS). He further indicated that Baluchistan was the most turbulent province in 2021, where 170 deaths were recorded in 103 terrorist attacks. While Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa witnessed 162 attacks which killed 180 people, 15 terrorist attacks were recorded in Sindh which left 23 dead. In Punjab, 10 terrorist attacks killed at least 10 people in 2021 according to the data.

This comes as the global watchdog FATF (Financial Action Task Force) is set to carry out an on-site visit to see if the measures taken by Islamabad to combat terrorist financing are sustainable and irreversible. Last week, the global money laundering and terrorist financing watchdog failed to immediately remove Pakistan from its gray list. Pakistan is not removed from the gray list today. It will be removed if the on-site visit concludes its actions are sustainable, FATF Chairman Marcus Pleyer said. Pleyer further said that an on-site inspection would be carried out before October.
