ISLAMABAD: Condemning a recent deadly attack in Quetta that killed 60 at least 60 people and injured dozens more, Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar admitted that terror incidents only occur when there was a lapse of security or intelligence sharing.
“War against terrorism is not over and we must be alert to the possibility of any danger.”
“No one should be under any illusion that Pakistan was devoid of terrorists,” Nisar told the participants of the National Police Academy, Pakistan’s premier police training institution in Islamabad.
He said terrorists were now launching attacks from across the borders and so we had to remain ready.
“We are tired of following the coffins of our beloved ones as mourners,” the interior minister said, however, also added that those who blame the government for administrative incompetence should also look at the overall better security situation in the country.
The minister of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz-led (PML-N) government said it had become a practice that we forget incidents after a brief phase of security alert and condemnations.
Nisar also announced that those behind the heinous act of terrorism in Quetta would be dealt accordingly along with those who showed negligence when they had intelligence report of a possible terror attack in the province of Balochistan.
Pakistan has a history of terror attacks that mostly occurred due to poor intelligence sharing between the centre and provinces or at the provincial level.
