Bilawal questions counter terrorism strategy after PM’s remarks




Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday questioned Pakistan’s counter-terrorism strategy after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif equated opposition protesters with terrorists.

Addressing a gathering in Sukkur on Friday, Prime Minister Sharif said that terrorists and those doing politics of sit-ins have matching agendas.

“Terrorists want to block our path to progress and prosperity and those staging sit-ins are doing the same. My question to you is: What’s the difference between the two?” he said.

The comments drew sharp condemnations from opposition parties and media commentators.

“If our PM can’t tell the difference between the opposition protestors and terrorists, are we surprised we’ve no effective counter terrorism strategy?” Bilawal said in a Twitter post.

On Friday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan and opposition leader Syed Khursheed Shah also condemned the prime minister’s remarks for drawing a parallel between political protests and terrorism.
