    Rehman Malik, are you sure all these activities are not being done by RAW and the foreign hand ? Why don’t you make up your mind, before speaking ?

    We will ask you one more time – are these terrorists, strategic assets promoted by the Deep State or agents of the foreign hand ?

    Hopefully you will utter some truth for once.
