ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muahmmad Nawaz Sharif Thursday stressed the need for operation Zarb-e-Qalam just like anti-terror operation Zarb-e-Azb to fight the forces spreading extremism and intolerance in the society.

"Just like operation Zarb-e-Azb, there is a dire need for operation Zarb-e-Qalam. I believe that the writers, poets and intellectuals have a key role for elimination of terrorism," he said addressing the inaugural session of fourth International Conference on `Language, Literature and Society' organized by Pakistan Academy of Letters.

The opening session of the four-day conference was attended by Advisor to Prime Minister on National History and Literary Heritage Irfan Siddiqui, Intellectual from Turkey Dr Jalil Tauqar and writers and poets from Iran, Spain, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Singapore, Oman, Maldives, Lebanon, China and Germany.

Speaking high of writers and intellectuals and their role for establishment of peace and harmony in any society, he said they were the most precious asset of any society as, though their works, they eliminated hatred, differences and bring the people closer to one and another.

He said through operation Zarb-e-Azb, the government and security forces had broken the backbone of terrorists and reiterated his government's resolve to revive peace and love in the country. - APP
