Rashid says Muslims can’t deny jihadi culture
Daily Times Monitor
LAHORE: Federal Information Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad told a Pakistani television channel on Friday that one of the attackers of Thursday’s suicide bomb attack on President Musharraf seemed to be a foreigner. He also said the jihadi culture in Pakistan could not be changed and he who denied jihad had no place in Islam, adding “But whether or not it is jihad can only be decided by the State.”
He said the police was not trained enough to counter terrorism and terrorist networks cannot be breached. He said, “Security arrangements need to be scientific, but we are not well equipped.”
Sheikh Rasheed suggested that the president should shift to Islamabad for security reasons.
