KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that all political parties should join hands against terrorism, keeping their various affiliations aside, and fight against this menace, DawnNews reported on Sunday.

Malik said that Pakistan’s situation today is worse than what it was facing in 1969 and 1971.

After attending the funeral of ANP’s Bashir Ahmed Bilour, Malik spoke to the media in Islamabad and paid tribute to the slain minister who was killed in an attack on Saturday.

The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) took responsibility for the attack.

Malik said that Bilour was a courageous man and praised the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as well as the members of ANP for the sacrifices they had made for the country.

The interior minister blamed foreign hands for spreading terrorism in Pakistan and accused some “black sheep” within the country of helping them.

He also stated that Ehsanullah Ehsan is working for foreign elements and promoting an anti-state agenda.

Malik said that these findings would soon be shared with the media as well.
