Interior Minister Rehman Malik has revealed that there would have been many acts of terrorism if cellular service was not suspended in four cities of the country on the occasion of Eid.
In an exclusive interview with Radio Pakistan on Thursday he said the Government had definite information about a conspiracy hatched to destabilize the country and designs of the enemies were foiled through effective coordination among intelligence and law enforcing agencies.
Replying to a question he clarified that the Government has no intention of blocking all unregistered SIMs immediately as it would cause inconvenience to users besides negatively impacting upon the revenue.
He said a meeting of all stakeholders would be convened to firm up strategy on how to deal with the issue of SIMs issued against fake identity cards or in the name of someone else.
The Minister proposed that SIMs should be verified against thumb impression of the applicants through NADRA database.
He said the issue of SIMs would be resolved keeping in view the foreign investment and interests of cellular operators.
He‚ however‚ vowed that a mechanism would be devised to ensure that mobile phones are not used as tool for terrorist activities.
About Naran tragedy‚ he said it was a terrorist act and not sectarian incident as those killed included both Shias and Sunnis.
Rehman Malik said he talked to Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan on the tense situation in the area and he conveyed three demands of the people which have been accepted.
These include provision of police escort to passenger traffic for Gilgit-Baltistan; compensation to the heirs of all those who lost their lives and increase in number of PIA flights to the region.
The Minister said he has asked PIA to double the existing flights. He said Gilgit airport would be upgraded to receive jet flights like Skardu.
Responding to a question he said there is evidence of presence of Taliban in Karachi and action is being taken against them.
About the decision to form Interfaith Council‚ he said it would have seven members representing different schools of thought and its Chairmanship would be rotated among them on quarterly basis. He said this would be a model initiative and on its success it would be replicated in the provinces.
He said a mega event of Conference on Interfaith Harmony would be held on 30th of this month to promote tolerance and ensure sectarian harmony and protect rights of minorities.
Regarding situation in Balochistan‚ the Interior Minister said it has improved following his detailed briefing to the Senate and exposing of activities of a neighbouring country.
Rehman Malik once again extended an offer to the estranged Baloch leaders to return to the country and talk to personalities of their choice. He said they should leave their cosy abodes abroad and return to Balochistan if they are genuinely interested in serving the people.
Asked to comment on reported statement of Taliban spokesman that they would retaliate if operation was launched in North Waziristan‚ the Minister said they do so at the instance of some one else.
He said it is known that Maulana Fazlullah and Maulvi Faqir are operating from Kunar province of Afghanistan. It would not have been possible for them to carry out attacks on this side of the border‚ martyr our people and take back their own injured without active foreign support.
He asked Taliban to surrender arms otherwise the Government is determined to take the campaign against terrorism to its logical conclusion.
When asked what he discussed during his telephonic conversation with Indian Home Minister‚ he said they talked about fast-tracking investigations into Mumbai attacks and SMS controversy.
Rehman Malik said he told his Indian counterpart that Pakistan is ready to take action if evidence was provided about involvement of anyone from Pakistan. He said he also extended an invitation to the Indian Minister to visit Pakistan.
