KARACHI:


Foreign elements are involved in the recent spate of terrorism in Karachi and the arrested killers have disclosed during interrogation that they had been trained in India, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Wednesday.


Talking to The Express Tribune he said that it has not been a tradition of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to fight over extortions, contributions, fitrah and sacrificial hides.

“Had this been the case”, he said, “then it would have been visible all over the country as the PPP is the biggest party of the country”.

He said that the arrested assassin Ajmal Pahari had told the joint interrogation team that he had been trained for terrorism in India.

He said that the politics of ‘dead bodies in sacks’ was introduced in the 1990s, while PPP had always been promoting peace.

He said that the situation in Lyari had started deteriorating during the Musharraf regime when, though he was arrested, Rahman Baloch was also allowed to run away. He said that it was during the PPP government when he had been killed in an encounter with the police.

He said that PPP was furthering the process of reconciliation.

He said that some locals were playing into the hands of foreign elements, however, now the law enforcment agencies had been given clear-cut instructions to deter terrorists at all costs.

He said that action was being taken against extortionists, targeted killers, land, drug mafias and other criminal gangs.

@Ali: Your comments are quite disappointing since your wish will put Pakistan into much deeper trouble than what it is now. You must realise that all internal problems which your country is facing are self-created and all Pakistanis should unite to solve them as we are doing against corruption in India. War with India is not a solution and I sincerly hope that you and even others would change their mindset about imaginary conspiracy theories and entering into conflict with India.
