SUKKUR: Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah said that Taliban are criminals and anti-state elements and enemies need to be told that writ of the government is intact in the country.
Talking to reporters at the Sukkur airport, Khurshid Shah said that “our soldiers are brutally martyred in broad day light and steps need to be taken to control such incidents”.
“Enemies and anti-state elements need to be told that writ of the government is intact in the country and it cannot be challenged so easily.”
He said the Taliban are criminals. “Islam is a religion of peace and preaches peace and tranquillity. There is no room for terrorism in Islam.” He said criminal elements, by portraying to be preachers of Islam, cannot fool the people of this country. The manner in which they carry out their barbarism is unprecedented… not even Jewish had resort to such violence, he said. He said that there seems to be no direction of talks with the Taliban. The PM needs to make a decision regarding the Taliban soon. “I assure him his chair is under no threat. He needs to make a decision like a true leader.”
