Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Friday condemned the attack on Data Darbar, saying that no Muslim could even think of attacking the shrine.

Speaking at an inaugural ceremony of a police station, Malik said that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LJ), Sipah-e-Sahaba (SS) along with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and Al-Qaida were working to destabilise Pakistan.

He said that the federal government had already hinted the provincial governments that after Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa the terrorists would target Punjab and Sindh and that law enforcement agencies and police are on high alert.

IG Islamabad, Syed Kalim Imam and SSP Islamabad, Tahir Alam welcomed the Interior Minister and presented him their recommendations for the improvement of police performance.

Earlier the minister visited the house of martyred police personnel Shamshad Khan and gave the cheque of Rs0.5 million to his widow.

Natasha | 10 years ago | Reply TTP has denied any responsibility. Malik has proven to be a failure and statements blaming Punjab Taliban won't prove him right just because he gets media attention.He needs to be thrown out. ISI has failed.
Raza | 10 years ago | Reply An unfortunate Pakistani from punjab did this, who was a Muslim like you and I. And I am sure he had gone to this shrine at least once in his life time before to pray for the unbearable life of poor in this land of evil. But Pakistan Army, ISI and politicians collectively with their policies in last 40 years drove him to the point where he was ready to do anything for money and saudi-islam. Now take that for your short sightedness turning a two thousand years civilization into bunch of hate-mongers, looter and corrupt directional-less illiterate buffoons. Our country Pakistan unfortunately is done. Too late to turn back now.
