PPP Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab said PML-N won the 2008 general elections with the support of religious extremists.


Talking to Express, Fauzia Wahab said that PML-N has connections with religious fundamentalists like Sipah Sihaba, Jundullah and Lashkar-e-Tayiba.


She said that attacks could be the reaction against PML-N's unfulfilled promises that the party had made with the extremist groups.

Hasan | 11 years ago | Reply Guardian editorial has put is very aptly yesterday in simple words;
No one in Pakistan, let alone Nawaz Sharif, who hopes one day to return to national power, can tolerate a policy of accommodating jihadis, or keep them as backroom allies in the mistaken belief that this is the best way of containing them. After the last two attacks, his brother Shahbaz cannot claim to have the situation under control in the Punjab. It is not and it needs a concerted police and intelligence operation (the army, too, needs to get off the fence) against all jihadis to settle the point of who runs the country's most populous province.
