TAXILA: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan told journalists on Tuesday that he never said that there was no presence of Daesh in Pakistan, he clarified that decision makers of Daesh have no presence in the country.
The interior minister told journalists that there are 45 different terrorist organizations operating in Pakistan. He added that those are same people from these terrorist organizations that break away and take on the name of Daesh.
“Local terrorists have been launching terror attacks in Pakistan even before the formation of Da’ish,” he said.
He was addressing a press conference after the leader of the opposition in the national assembly Syed Khursheed Shah asked how terrorism can be eradicated in a country where the interior minister is so weak.
“If there is any evidence, do bring them to us,” Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali added. “I know about the civil society raising political slogans against the government,” he said, adding that the movement was built up against Maulana Aziz in the wake of Peshawar’s Army Public School attack in December 2014.
