This is the first time Army Chief has given a veiled warning to Pak Government to extend the gains made by Pak Army in Radd ul Fasad. Ironically Pak Army has used Radd ul Fasad to eliminate anti Army sentiments which have now started surfacing post failure of Gen Raheel Sharif to steer Islamic NATO out of narrow sectarian out look. There is a huge debate over army's role in bungling all National and International issues of Pakistan.
