Rehman Malik at a press conference has praised the bravery and sacrifice of Army and police while calling Taliban ‘marauders’ and said they have no religion according to a report by ARY News.
ISLAMABAD: Lauding the valour and sacrifices rendered by Army and law enforcing agencies to curb the menace of terrorism, Interior Minister Rehman Malik Friday reiterated government’s resolve to free the country from the scourge of terrorism and militancy.
Talking to media persons at the Parliament House, the minister said the government would not bow down before the threats of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and efforts would further be expedited to purge the country from the shackle of TTP and terrorists.
Malik said he has been receiving threats from TTP but “such threats could not stop us from the determination to eradicate the menace of terrorism”.
Replying to a question, he said that no religion allows killing of innocent people and those who kill innocent people have no religion. “Taliban are criminal, murderer and marauder as they are playing with the lives of innocent people,” he said, and added that terrorists would be dealt with an iron hand.
