Former interior minister and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Rehman Malik has said that ISIS is conspiring to start violence between Shia and Sunni communities and emphasised that the government and the law enforcement agencies would have to take coordinated and serious steps to foil this conspiracy.
Addressing a press conference Sunday, Rehman Malik said that military courts are necessary to punish the terrorists and these courts could not be termed as extra constitutional. He said banned TTP chief Mullah Fazlullah was indulging in terrorism in Pakistan by sitting in Afghanistan and time has come that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani should arrest him and handover to Pakistan so that he is punished for his crimes.
Answering a question, Malik said the political jirga was still keen that the government and PTI succeed in their dialogue and for this purpose the jirga was in touch with both the sides. He hoped that the situation would improve in the next few days.
