Information minister lauds role of police in war on terror



Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rashid said on Friday that terrorists’ philosophy must be eliminated for the complete eradication of terrorism from the country.

He was addressing a Punjab Police workshop in Lahore on Friday.

He said that the hideouts and infrastructure of terrorist organisations had been destroyed due to successful government measures and the military operation.

He said that the war against terrorism has become an ideological war. He said that terrorists are using social media to propagate their evil agenda.

He said that the police personnel played an important role in destroying the terrorist infrastructure in the province. He said that police personnel protect the lives of public while endangering their own.

Strongly condemning the recent terrorist attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, he termed the terrorists as beasts, who even targeted a young student sitting on a prayer mat.
