Express June 10, 2010

LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah ruled out any operation in South Punjab on Thursday, saying that Taliban are recruiting in Lahore and Faisalabad, not training in Punjab.

Speaking to Express, he said the two main accused of the Jinnah Hospital terror attack have been arrested, adding that initial investigation revealed that all the terrorists got their training from Miranshah and later joined the Raiwind congregation and stayed over there.

He also said that the terrorists hide their weapons in Raiwind but the Raiwind administration itself is unaware of such actions.

Sanaullah also said that accused of Jinnah hospital attack were arrested buy their names cant be disclosed right now.

Salman Masood writing for the Express Tribune said:
That said, south Punjab continues to make headlines after each terror incident. These districts have remained dismally impoverished with an abundance of madrassahs and outfits like the Sipah-i-Sahaba, the LeJ and the Jaish-i-Muhammad have strong networks there.


Danish | 12 years ago | Reply Surely there cant be any operation anywhere in Punjab, after all it is Punjab, not Karachi or Pakhtunkwa. How do you see a Punjabi army making operation against its own people? ;-)
Syed A. Mateen | 12 years ago | Reply There should be no “no-go-area” for the Police and other Security Agencies to apprehend the terrorists or their accomplices. We must hunt the terrorists wherever they are so that peace should prevail in the country. The rift between the Governor of Punjab and the Members of Provincial Assembly of Punjab is growing with the passage of time. Due to unlikeness on both sides, terrorists move around easily in Punjab and make the innocent people target. We need to use iron hand to curb terrorist’s activities not only from Punjab but from the entire Pakistan.
