Peshawar, December 19, 2012 (PPI-OT): The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Information and Public Relations, Mian Iftikhar Hussain, while strongly condemning the terrorist activity in Risalpur Cantt, Nowshera has said that the backbone of the terrorists has been broken, their local manpower has exhausted and they are using foreign elements for their activities as their last resort. We will fight them to their elimination and peace will soon prevail; he added.
He was talking to media men during his visit to the spot of terrorist activity in Risalpur Cantt on Tuesday. Terming the terrorists as evil forces, Mian said that these forces were indiscriminately targeting all types of people and places including, women, children, security forces, the general public, schools, markets and even Ulema and mosques.
Our nation, the government and the security agencies are not to be demoralized or afraid of these coward activities of the evil forces, we will fight them with more courage for the sake of our motherland even at the cost of our lives, he maintained. Responding to questions of media-men regarding the consecutive incidents of terrorism in Peshawar and vicinity, Mian Iftikhar said though the terrorists were making to reach their targets but the law enforcing agencies continuously foiling their attempts, and during the last seven months about five hundred such attempts have been foiled by the security agencies for which they really deserve appreciation. To an other query, the Provincial Minister was of the view that the general elections should not be delayed at any case and be held on its stipulated time.
He urged the general masses to be united and put their hands together with the government and law enforcing agencies against the terrorists so that they could be eliminated once for all. He sympathized with the injured people and prayed for their early recovery.
