ISLAMABAD, Feb 17 (INP): Former Interior Minister and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader, Senator Rehman Malik has said that Prime Minister should convene All Parties Conference (APC) to discuss the surge in the terrorist attacks across the country.
Talking to media persons outside the Parliament House here on Friday, Rehman Malik said that Mullah Fazalullah and Maulvi Faqir Muhammad which sitting in Afghanistan were involved in conducting terrorist attacks in Pakistan. Afghan ambassador should be summoned for explanation in this regard, he added.
He hailed the decision of Army Chief regarding sealing border with Afghanistan and said it would help to lessen the terrorism as the extremists enter into Pakistan from Afghanistan and conduct the terrorist attacks.
The former interior minister said that office of terrorist organization Jamaat-ul-Ahrar was just 500 metres from Pakistani border where the terrorist attacks in Pakistan were planned and sponsored for implementation.
Lives of Pakistani people were not so inexpensive that their blood should be shed in such terror attacks, Rehman Malik maintained.
He said that 88 poor and innocent people were martyred in suicide attack on Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine which was condemnable.
The former interior minister said that terrorists were neither Muslims nor Pakistanis and they should be dealt with iron hands.
Responding to a question, Rehman Malik said that Pakistan has longest border with Afghanistan but it was not extending cooperation for border management which was matter of grave concern.
