Rehman Malik writes to Punjab government to take action against Lashkar-e-Jhangvi
Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that he has written to the Punjab government to take action against the banned militant outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. Malik added that action against the banned outfit will also be taken in Karachi and Balochistan. This followed a similar though slightly different line of what Malik said during the senate session which discussed law and order situation in the country. According to Radio Pakistan, Malik told the senate that the responsibility of the federal government is to provide information about possible terrorist attacks to local law enforcement but it was up to the provinces to take action on that intelligence. He pointed towards Punjab, who Malik said had taken benefit of information provided and averted a number of terrorist attacks. The interior minister insisted that security agencies have carried out successful operations to curb terrorist activities in the country, with 31 people belonging to various banned outfits having been arrested so far. Malik has said some elements are trying to destabilise Pakistan by promoting sectarianism.
