PESHAWAR: Friends of terrorists are traitors of Pakistan; their apologists are accomplices to murder of our children, Pakistan Peoples Party leader Sherry Rehman said on Thursday as she addressed a press conference in Peshawar, Express News reported.

Accompanied by former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Rehman said time has come to draw a line between the apologists and enemies of terrorists.

“The world has no idea of the level of sacrifices rendered by the people Pakistan in this fight against terrorism,” she said, as she reminded everyone that the frontline is not on the border but inside our homes and schools now.

“The terrorists have been targeting our men and women and now they are killing our children; they want to destroy our future” the PPP leader said, adding that this war cannot be won by courage alone. “Courage runs in our blood but what we need is planning and unity,” she stressed.

She further requested the media to play its role and make sure terrorist apologists are not given airtime. “Media also needs to hold the country’s leadership accountable to its promises,” she added.

“Whoever started this fire, our house is burning now and we will have put it out,” she said, adding that life cannot go on as usual anymore.

You made the bed, now sleep in it. This needed to happen to get the army to do do something. Have you any idea how many poor children have been blown-up and no-one done anything. Then why do something now, hold on their the middle class army's children, I knew there was a snag somewhere.

The accomplices are none but the burqa wearing Maulana Abdul Aziz and JUD Hafiz Saeed. Let us see what action the government take on these two apologists.
