Terrorists will be dealt with iron fist: Pak Interior Minister

Islamabad : Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said the terrorists and their facilitators will be dealt with an iron fist, adding that those who attacked innocent people would not be spared whether they were inside the country or came from foreign lands.

“The terrorists and their facilitators will be dealt with an iron fist, and in coming days and weeks, action will be taken without any consideration whatsoever,” The Express Tribune quoted Nisar as saying on Saturday.

He said the civil and military leadership of the country decided during a recent high-level security meeting that even diplomatic consideration would not hinder actions aimed at ensuring national security and peace.

Nisar said the recent counter terror operations would continue to eliminate terrorism emanating from foreign soil.

He alleged that foreign powers and their intelligence agencies are involved in creating unrest in the country, adding that coordinated attempts were being made to disrupt improving peace and normalcy in the country.

Nisar claimed that Afghan refugees were used during the recent terrorist incidents in the country.

He urged Afghan refugees to identify the black sheep in their midst who facilitate terrorists and terrorist activities.
