PESHAWAR–Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Sherry Rehman said Wednesday that if anyone engaged in the apologist narrative when it comes to terrorism and terrorist attacks, they would be considered as terrorists and allies of the terrorists.
Time has come for a decision and anyone who presents justification for acts of terrorism will be regarded as a traitor.
“Whoever is a friend of the terrorists is a traitor,” Rehman said addressing media representatives in Peshawar.
Rehman urged that the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will not remain the victims and instead become those who will lead the war against terrorists.
PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira said that Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif and Director General Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Gen Rizwan Akhtar had received a good response from the Afghan government with regards to their assistance for action against a Kunar-based Taliban splinter group which is believed to be behind the Peshawar army school massacre.
He said the war against terror was being fought very bravely but said that the fight only constituted 10 per cent and that the main fight was against the extremist mindset spreading in the country.
He said the PPP supported the government fully in the war against terror, adding that the party had also rendered numerous sacrifices and would continue to do so in future.
