ISLAMABAD: PML-N leader Tariq Azeem has said that Peshawar’s tragic incident has shocked the whole world but provided an opportunity to the nation to get united and wakeup for the sake of the country.
Talking to Radio Pakistan he said “all the national institutions should be made active to cope with the menace of terrorism. We should get rid of extremism”.
Replying to a question Tariq said, “security forces can only succeed, if people support them as Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has also appealed the media to play an active role in war against terrorism.
He mentioned that “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif summoned the APC in Peshawar soon after the tragic incident in the city, where important decisions were taken. The Prime Minister issued directives to form trauma centers for the children, who escaped the tragic incident. The government and security forces have jointly chalked out a strategy to cope with terrorism”.
Therefore, it is required to identify terrorists among the common people. Media should also avoid publicizing the terrorist elements, he advised.
