ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that murder of famed qawwal Amjad Sabri and kidnapping of Owais Ali Shah, son of Chief Justice Sindh High Court (SHC) Sajjad Ali Shah, is a challenge for the government.
Addressing a press conference here Saturday, Chaudhry Nisar said killing of Amjad Sabri and kidnapping of Owais Shah reflected frustration of the terrorists. He added that politicizing these events was not in favour of the country.
Nisar said some elements were playing negative role on social media to harm Pakistan’s commitment to fight terrorism.
Nisar said that the extortion, terrorism, target killing and kidnappings have dropped sharply during the last two years. But one incident can take all the credit away from the police and there is a strategy behind it.
Terrorists do it to discredit the police because they don’t have the free space they had in the past, he said.
He went on to say 2000 retired army officials will be appointed in the Sindh police to improve the capacity of the police.
Talking about China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Chaudhry Nisar said that enemy was after it and it must be defended at any cost.
