PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain on Saturday said that regardless of ethnic identity, those who engaged in terrorist activities were terrorists, DawnNews reported.

He said terrorists had no national affiliations, adding that, the army should eliminate them, adding that, he was not afraid of terrorists and had exposed them.

The minister said the country's previous governments were afraid of speaking to the international community on Pakistan’s terrorism problem.

He said Peshawar was not only celebrating Malala Day on Saturday, it was, in fact, celebrating all those brave men and women who had given sacrifices against the scourge of terrorism.

The minister thanked the international community for standing up for Malala.

He said Pakistan, Afghanistan and the United States would have to fight terrorism through a joint strategy, adding that, whether the decision would be to launch an operation or to engage in talks, the three countries should remain united.

Hi there, Its incrudulous to believe that these days everyone is blatantly blaming Terriorism for every single thing that is happening all around the world. Particularly, policiticans from our country are far the most in this race, I think it would be so wonderful if they could run this country sincerely and devotedly rather than worshiping their infedal nature. I suppose they are the biggest cause of this failure and insult that has been prevailed in our country.

Very sensible comment by the Minister. Army should eliminate them or engage them in talks as time has come to bring peace in Pakistan. A few hundred men cannot hold the entire population at ransom.

I can't digest these words . If it so , then why some politically influential people expressed their sadness and even some were seen weeping after the death of Bi Laden? Why some people greeted the terrorist with flowers who killed Mr.Taseer?So what you said is your opinion , not necessarily the opinion of most people .
