PESHAWAR, Oct 10: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has said that PTI will hold a protest demonstration against the US drone attacks in front of the United Nations in New York on Oct 26.

Talking to media persons after visiting the CMH to enquire after the health of Malala Yousafzai here on Wednesday, he said that drone attacks and military operations had been producing more militants in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and announced that PTI would gather peace activists from around the world to register protest at the UN.

He also condemned those who attacked Malala Yousafzai and said that military operation in Swat had proved a failure and army campaigns in Fata should be stopped.

Malala is a beacon of hope for our younger generation, he said and prayed for her early recovery.

Army action was no solution to the problem of insurgency as such actions had failed to bear fruit in the past eight years, he said, adding that we had to have a well thought out policy to eradicate terrorism.
