Mr. Tanvir Ashraf Kaira, Sectreaty General PPP Punjab, in a statement issued from here today urged the representative Committee formed under the supervision of Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisal Ali Khan, should take into serious consideration of the mindset that is ridiculing the constitution, democracy and Parliament and openly supporting the Taliban and IS.
He deplored the failure of the government of containing Lal Masjicd clerics, government servant, challenging the writ of the government and boasting to open defiance of the political system of the country without an iota of fear of any legal consequences. Who will believe in the commitment level of the mandarins, he questioned?.
He deplored that the Islamabad administration registered cases against the members of the civil society who were condemning the Maulana in front of the mosque for his refusal to condemn Taliban for abhorrent massacre in Peshawar.
He pointed out that the entire political and military leadership was on the same page and the government should take firm and clear stand against terrorists posing existential threat to the country. The timidity in this regard now will be unforgiving, he warned.
He said that the PPP and its leadership had been consistent to confront the Talibans on their turf because they only understood the language of force, and deeply inclined to barbarity.
He recalled that the PPP and its leadership were the worst victims of terrorism because Shaheed Benazir Bhutto was assassinated by them along with many committed workers and leaders.
Tanvir Ashraf Kaira reiterated that the PPP would scuttle the designs of the terrorists of imposing their redundant and obscurantist ideology at gun point because the perpetrators were neither human beings nor Muslims and so was their toxic ideology.
He argued that Pakistan PPP strong stance for the continuity of democracy and its promotion had been adopted to stave off the extremist tendencies in the politics and embolden the policy of reconciliation and consensus.
Democracy is the unequivocal commitment of the PPP and is determined to come up with the expectations of the people by defeating the enemy of the political system, he maintained. Democracy is the only anti-dote to address the evil of terrorism holistically on permanent basis.
