LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Information Secretary Shafqat Mahmood said that the party leadership has strongly condemned the brutal beheading of Pakistani soldiers at the hands of Afghanistan based militants. He added that party Chairman Imran Khan has expressed condolences to the bereaved families and prayed for the dead.
Mahmood said that the brutal incident exposed several key issues that need to be addressed.
“How come militants were able to get together and launch an attack across the border without being intercepted by either Afghan or the Nato forces?” he questioned.
“If they were not seen, it exposes massive incompetence and if they were, then it raises a very serious question about collusion with militants and complicity of Afghan government," he said.
Mahmood added that to ensure such attacks are not repeated, it is necessary that the government handles the matter at the diplomatic level and makes it clear to the Afghan government that such cross-border attacks would not be tolerated.
He said that the PTI wants the government to take the nation into confidence and make all the facts related to this brutal episode public.
