LAHORE: A day after the suicide attack in Lahore, which claimed at least 13 lives, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Monday the war on terror will be taken to its logical end.

The premier, while chairing a law and order meeting in Lahore, said the country will not stumble in this struggle due to such terror attacks. "Our enemies will be defeated by our national resolve," he added.

The prime minister termed wiping out terrorism a national duty, saying neither him nor the nation will forget the sacrifices of valiant police officers and officials. "This is a war of right and wrong and we as a nation are on the right side of history," he remarked.

Tatvavetta | 6 years ago | Reply Promoting nonviolence is important in a democracy. No solutions can be found by promoting violence. Pakistan will have to promote this message in school / madarsa education. Otherwise declaring a violent Muslim a nonMuslim will not be helpful.
