KARACHI - Interior Minister Rehman Malik has warned of terror attacks in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Quetta and Karachi.

The interior minister also revealed that Taliban visit Karachi to spend their vacations. He said Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan activists are entering the country from Afghanistan and using sectarianism as a tool to destabilise Pakistan.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, Malik further said that PPP and MQM are united to maintain peace in Karachi.

Malik said there was threat of attacks on the offices of political and religious parties in Karachi and the government would provide them arms licences to secure their offices from terrorism. He said the government has a plan to impart training to the private security guards.

He said the media should not direct horses and donkeys with one nod. If the cartoons of politicians could be made then why the sketches of Chief Justice and Chief of Army Staff could not be prepared, he added.

He said Taliban have moved towards Gilgit-Baltistan after Karachi but stern action would be taken against them in every nook and corner of the country.

The government of PPP is neither ignorant of the difficulties faced by the country nor it is sitting idle. The problems could be resolved by sitting together in a befitting manner, he maintained.

“I never said that pre-paid sims would be eliminated completely. Only illegal sims would be closed,” he added.

Meanwhile, in an interview with PTV, Rehman Malik said Pakistan played a vital role in the war on terror and suffered a lot due to this problem. He said economy had badly affected while fighting war on terror.

He said the international community must recognise Pakistan’s efforts and come forward for treating and helping Pakistan as a victim. Malik said more than 40,000 people had sacrificed their lives in this regard.

The minister urged the international community to step forward for supporting Pakistan in this difficult situation. He hoped the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit would provide a great assistance in resolving the problems of the region.
